Q. Tony, it's almost a reverse situation from yesterday. They were in a position today where they could have really run away with it. You had a couple of guys make some comeback - Longmuir and Mason, the last few holes putted pretty well there.
TONY JACKLIN: Yes. When Bill got off the 18th green with Mason, he said when it was all over he felt sorry for him because they were never in the lead. They were 3 down at one time. I mean, they played beautifully, two long putts from the left two greens to get out with a win, and that one was pretty sensational from our end. But then Brad Faxon made a heck of a four from behind the scoreboard on 18. I mean, that was I wouldn't say uncalled for, but it was pretty spectacular. I might be able to say it from my end, but it was a pretty spectacular way to make four.
At the end of the day, all of these situations every putt, it's easy to think when everybody is out there playing, you know, well, it's just another hole, but I promise you faithfully at the end of all the proceedings here this week, every single putt that has been made and been missed becomes important. You win some and you lose some. Looking at that scoreboard as it was earlier in the afternoon, I was more than pleased to come out with a tie today in the four balls.
Q. Arnold, did Curtis and Scott both go to Wake Forest on the Palmer Scholarships?
ARNOLD PALMER: They did.
Q. Arnold, Curtis said that you kept the ball in play on almost every hole and that enabled him to take a few more chances. So even though he had a bunch of birdies on there, in a format like this, the other guy can take some credit as they've kept it in play, can't they, and feel like he's contributed?
ARNOLD PALMER: I don't know. I didn't hit it far enough to get it into any trouble. My contribution was rooting for Curtis, I guess, most of the time. He was playing very, very well. The fact, as Tony said, the one hole that was a pretty key hole was after he birdied nine. He made a great birdie at nine to cut the lead to one, and then I was fortunate enough to make birdie at 10. And of course that kind of gave Curtis some more momentum to go and he got going really good after that. I thought maybe he was encouraged by the fact that I was there for a hole and that inspired him to get on and do what he did.
Q. How long was the putt?
ARNOLD PALMER: Ten feet.
TONY JACKLIN: Nine or ten feet, yes.
JIM KELLY: Just on a quick personal note, back when Furman Bisher was writing all those great columns and Tony was winning the U.S. Open and the British, and Arnold was winning at Augusta, the man running that was running the press room for the PGA TOUR, and he's here today, sitting next to Furman. It's great to see our friend Tom Place. You know it's a big event when Tom is there, right?
Good luck tomorrow, Tony and Arnold. Let the competition continue.
