Quotes from the news wire:
Id never experienced even as an old, cynical writer as much excitement as all of us felt that afternoon following that action, there have been so many great moments in golf that you even forget some of them. But that one still stands out. ... There have been so many great tournaments that Ive been privileged to see, and people paid me to go watch, that Im awfully grateful for it.
Even though I was making a stab at humor, I dont think I ever wrote a line I didnt believe, i tried not to draw too much blood. I tried to rave about all the heroes of the game, and they deserved it. ... When something great happens like when an Arnold Palmer or Jack Nicklaus or Tiger Woods or Ben Hogan happens you dont have to be funny, you just have to be accurate.
