Q. Talk about your practice rounds with Jeff Julian?
JACK NICKLAUS: He's a pretty courageous young man, I think. And he's, he's, he wants to play well, he's trying, he's out here trying to play golf and he's obviously got a handicap that, that is more than just a handicap. It's very difficult for him. And but he's trying. He wants to play. And he is very appreciative of being here. I was delighted to have the opportunity to play with him on Wednesday. And he played very well. But everybody hopes that they will find something that will show that down or cure it. And it's going to happen some day. Let's just hope it happens in his life-time.
JACK NICKLAUS: I was able to use my lower body. I haven't been able to use my lower body at all. And I started being able to use -- that's what made me decide to play Wednesday. I was able to get here (Indicating) I haven't been able to get any more than about here or here (Indicating). And so once I started to be able to use my lower body I said, I don't have any excuse other than I haven't played.
JACK NICKLAUS: I'm reasonable functional.
Q. What's that the result of?
JACK NICKLAUS: I'm not sure. I'm sure that a lot of the exercises that I'm doing I changed some of my exercise program and I'm working more on trunk stabilization and a little bit more on my ab work. And a little bit more on concentrating in the mid section. And it seems to be stabilizing me. And I think that I can't believe how weak I was through that area. And when you do exercises a lot of times you do exercises, and you're out there doing all these things and all of a sudden you're doing them with muscles you shouldn't be doing them with. I had no lats. I couldn't find my lats. You know, I was working out and he said, if you would pull down your lats for me. He said, where is your lats? I said what's that? I couldn't move it. They say use your pecs or they use other muscles for that. And I think I did a lot of weight work a year ago and I think I hurt myself for that because I was using the muscles I shouldn't have been using and I got weak with the other muscles. And I think that's some way of trying to work stabilization back into it. Strengthening the muscles that really function more for golf. That's what I'm trying to do.
