A i knew i was close to the Lead but i did t know How she noted Quot people in the crowd kept winking at me. So i knew i had to be in it. I did t know i had to Par the Hole for a playoff but i was going for a Birdie on the last Hole. It did t look like it. In a sure but i was. The main thing was leaving that putt Short. I was concentrating so much on getting a Good line that i did t stroke the Ball and left it too Short. Quot i was hitting the greens today but my putting was the problem done to get me wrong though in a thrilled to death with having a 73.
