Jack Nicklaus


Q. You reverted back to not being able to convert ....

JACK NICKLAUS: I didn't need to convert much. I don't know how many greens I missed, but I didn't miss very many and I just didn't make anything. Never made any birdies, no birdies. . Hit 3 greens. Made three bogeys. Two bogeys, double-bogey, that is a good score. What can I say? It's the way I played most of this year. Yesterday was the aberration, I guess.

Q. Yesterday can live again. You still have to be -- you got to say something positive from the way --

JACK NICKLAUS: I don't have much positive to say about that. I think that I felt like I started out not playing great first couple of holes and got over that. Got a couple of pars under my belt, and got going and then I hit 3-wood off of 7 to play it into the opening. I went in the bunker; had a terrible lie in the bunker and I had 6-iron downwind, and downhill; that was just perfectly picked out of a bad lie ball; hit on the green like where it should hit, and bounced three feet forward. It's got to go back to the hole. It doesn't. I 3-putted. The 9th hole I didn't hit really a good shot; left it, looked like I was at Pebble Beach, just off the green and the ball just came out too fast; made bogey. Played all the way around; had birdie chances almost every hole, virtually every hole. Walked off with nothing. Hit one bad shot at 17 and double-bogey, that was my round. I don't take a lot of positive away from that. Hard to put a positive on it. I feel like I played a lot better than what I shot and scored, but I signed 75 and that is what I am going to have to sleep on tonight.

Q. (inaudible)

JACK NICKLAUS: End of story. How do I am prove? Well, I start out by shooting 74 then 73, then 72, 71. Those are all better. I don't know what I am going to do. Okay. Thanks.
