A They just fit my game. I was always pretty good at everything but not probably great at everything. I could keep it in play and was a good chipper and putter. And I was patient. Those are the things you need in a U.S. Open because you’re going to miss a lot of greens and have to keep your emotions under control.
Q Does the Olympic Club, where you won the 1987 U.S. Open, remain one of your favorite courses?
A Oh yeah. And beyond me winning there, it’s a great golf course. No water. No OB. One fairway bunker and it still plays really hard. I like the courses where if you hit a good shot you’re rewarded, if you hit a bad shot you’re penalized and if you hit a real bad shot you’re real penalized. Courses like Pete Dye courses you can be penalized for a good shot. I don’t like that.
Q Do you have any copies of the Sports Illustrated cover you were on after that win?
A I do but I don’t know where they are. My wife does, I’m sure. It was a huge thrill to be on the cover. The only trouble is I have to sign about a thousand of them each year. But that’s a good problem.
