Quot she got a Birdie there and i got a bogey there was a two shot swing and suddenly in a four behind Quot technically it Wasny to quite Over Marsh bogeyed 13 while Jones made routine Par. A Jones Birdie at the Par five 14th Cut another stroke off the Lead when Marsh made Par but colonial s top woman golfer plugged the leak on the treacherous 15th Hole a demanding Par three when after her tee shot was Short of the Green she put a Long Chip shot within four feet and made the putt. Quot i d said to myself that i d hang in there after 12,&Quot Jones said Quot but that was the real turning Point. Then when Linda made that Par on 15. I knew it would be very difficult to catch up that Chip shot was almost unbelievable i did t think she could get it anywhere close to the Hole from where she was the two matched pars the rest of the Way Marsh did no to feel it was one of her Best rounds of Golf. Quot i was t hitting the Ball As Crisp As i did she evaluated Quot and my approach shots weren t As close either but i was making a lot of clutch putts a a second straight Victory at her Home club carried special meaning though Quot Back to Back wins Are hard Quot she stressed Quot i guess i put a lot of pressure on myself to do that i certainly Lake some satisfaction in my game now i be come a Long Way since Spring Quot Dom.

And maybe the Western open can be called the Back door Derby. Nobody went Forward. Geiberger backed into the 840,000 top prize by deliberately playing for a bogey on the last Hole he said later Quot ill admit that was a rare Way to win a he said that he remembered Arnold Palmer winning at Tucson some years ago with a double bogey on the final Hole. But. Of course he was t going for one Geiberger won with a closing 73 for a 288, four strokes Over Par. Quot it s hard for me to believe i won Quot he said.

Geiberger made a testy Par coming out of the Sand and Canning a five foot putt. At that Point he knew he had tied Porter for the Lead but up ahead on is. Porter was in trouble unknown to Geiberger Porter put his drive into the rough his second into a trap. His third Over the Green and ended with a double bogey six for a 73 and 289 on the 18th, Geiberger followed the general script of the tournament and put his drive among the Trees Quot i had a shot to the he said. Quot but it was a very difficult one with water to contend with i asked an official what Porter had done he told me he double bogeyed. Can you imagine How i Felt knowing that All i needed to win the tournament was to bogey the last Hole a i changed my whole game plan and played my second shot Safe. Quot then i hit a Sand wedge and it went Over the Green something i had been doing All Day Quot Geiberger continued Quot and i said to myself.
