Drama to the very end
In the 1972 US Open, with a three-shot lead (after hitting the pin on 17 for a tap-in birdie), I played the last hole at Pebble Beach with a 1-iron, 1-iron, wedge. Today’s professionals might hit a pair of hybrids and a sand wedge. In the 2000 US Open, I took the challenge and knocked it on in two at age 60. With tears in my eyes – I knew it was my last Open there – I three-putted for par.
