The crowd pushes in so close you feel like you re in prison. You can to get away from anybody. You can to get a drink of water without 5,000 people watching every move. A i know. In be been through it. I be seen it break Strong men. I have seen men panic. I have seen them freeze. I have seen others say a to hell with it a and go to something Rosburg came out of Stanford University to join the pro tour in 1953. He won such tournaments As the Crosby Hope motor City and the 1959 pea in earning close to $500,000. After winning the Hope classic in 1972, began phasing out his tournament career. He has played Only four tournaments this year and has Given More emphasis to his commentators role with Abc to which airs the pc and most other major Golf events other than the masters. Rosburg said could relate to the volatile Weiskopf because himself was criticizing the establishment drawing suspensions and fines when Tom was just a petulant tyke in knee pants picking up his marbles and running Home in a Huff. A for one thing there is the sponsor pressure Quot Rosburg said. A a these Are the people who bankroll the tour and All golfers feel an obligation to them i am sure that was the Case with Weiskopf a a played a great open probably Felt that should have won it. You can imagine his disappointment when didst. He played in the Western at Butler National outside Chicago and this is a tournament that can bring a Man to his Knees. A although tired and probably needing a rest played at Westchester because it was a designated tournament and then went to the Canadian probably just to help out the tournament. I can understand that must have been at the breaking Weiskopf picked up in both the Western and Westchester drawing a $3,-000 Fine and a years probation since then has said has vowed never to do it again Rosburg a dumpy implausible athlete who wears thickens glasses and uses a baseball grip was constantly at Odds with the establishment in his heyday mainly because of his outspokenness. He was suspended in 1961 for criticizing slow play. In 1971, rapped the pc for the laxity of the rules another time was disciplined for suggesting that a player should be permitted to withdraw after completing a round in Many cases the pea got around to his Way of thinking a a like Weiskopf i had a bad temper a the broadcaster said a i was never too discreet about the things i said. Especially when i thought i had something to say. A a yet i always adhered to the rules in the matter of dress and language i did t throw and break clubs. I never walked off the course in the midst of u round but i think Golf is wrong if it tries to make All the players fit into a Mold it s the variety of the Guys personalities that keeps this game Rosburg recalled that Golf has a Rich tradition of playboys and rascals swingers and purists pop offs and introverts a a Walter Hagen had a wild reputation of burning the Candle at both ends was colourful and flamboyant would arrive at the first tee in a Tuxedo after an All night party. Bob Jones was notorious As a club thrower a we have had Guys like Lee Trevino who once said of a tournament a this is a zoo a and Dave Hill who shocked the . Golf association by calling the Hazeltine course a Cornfield. A we have had our temperamental Guys like Tommy Bolt free wheelers like Jimmy Demaret and Porky Oliver As Well As dedicated impeccable shot makers like Ben Hogan. Byron Nelson Cary Middlecoff and Nicklaus. A we have certain obligations to conform where rules and Good taste apply but we also have the right to be ourselves. Outlaw individuality and you will have the dullest show in Rosburg noted that some players had suffered nervous breakdowns. Middlecoff who won two opens got to a Point where break 80. The great Hogan became so frightened at a six foot putt could t bring Back the club. A a its the pressure. It finally gets to us All one Way or said. A even Sam Snead As Loose As is. Had to go to a croquet putting style. In football you san at least hit somebody and relieve the tension. A the toughest experience i Ever had was in the 1962 open at Oakmont.
