A the greens Are in magnificent condition right now Quot to Cash l now of he said. A live been coming Here for 12 years and in be never seen them As Good As this. Charles even went so far As to say his score came easily a although he went on to qualify that. A no round comes really easily but this one did no to come that hard a he said. A i never missed a Green and made six birdies on six one putts. I had about four other chances from within six feet but missed. I thought the course was playing Shorter than it usually does you could reach All the greens comfortably in two for the first time in Many years the morning golfers were playing the Ball Down that is they were not allowed to improve the Ball s position in the Fairway. George Knudson. Who was among the front runners at 66, was one golfer who greatly approved the change. A it s Nice to be playing the Ball Down he stated. A i guess its a matter of professional Pride playing the Ball As it comes to rest. Its really a better test of Golf if you play them a of Knudson continued. A there s not such a thing As a bad lie out there today. These Are by far the Best conditions we be played under Down seems unlikely that Many of the afternoon set would have agreed although three of them actually had very few complaints despite the heavy Rains. Leonard Thompson. Babe Hisky and Ray Floyd All described the Sedgefield course As playable despite the afternoon Monsoon. Of course the Trio had just posted the three Best scores of the afternoon with Thompson and Hisky joining the leaders at 65 and Floyd just one stroke Back at 66. I hey seemed More anxious to count their blessings rather than the rain drops. A the toughest thing in the rain for me was slowing up a said Floyd. A i wanted to jump out and shoot and then get Back under the umbrella. Rut the course was definitely playable and i knew we would finish when we started Back up after the delay. There were Only two greens that had standing water a most of the pins were place on High ground. I guess they were expecting judging from past go experience the tournament personnel had probably been thinking along the lines Floyd suggested. Thompson for one Felt the course was handled Well during the storm a i thought they kept the greens fairly dry a he commented. A the course was definitely playable although i thought we should have stopped after the first big Thompson May still Stop sometime in the near future and although rain will not be the cause Mother nature will have a Finger in his plans. A my wife s expecting a child and she a three weeks late already a he explained. A if she has it Iti leave unless i m going into the final round As the like Floyd Hisky Felt the rain disturbed him mentally More than anything else. A the rain bothers my mental attitude a he said.
