again and be constantly reminded through the year with the media. what he's going to learn, as he said, he was aiming 20 feet left. from now on you have to say that i'm going to vow that when i make a decision on the golf course, i have got to stick to it. jim: at 18, jason day. very surprising round, seven over. needs to get up and down for 78. let's go over to peter kostis. peter: thank you, jim. charley, you played some spectacular golf all day long. a couple of stumbles at the end. how do you feel about today's round? charley: good. got off to a great start then stumbled around the middle of the round, made some nice birdies. around the turn it was a little sloppy but made some great par
6:01 pm
saves in the middle of the round and made a great birdie on 16. hit a good shot on 17 that didn't turn out. on 18 i thought i hit a good one but five feet short. next thing you know i make two bogeys. peter: those are the conditions we play there. you've been putting yourself in contention quite a bit this year. been struggling a bit on the weekend. what's within getting in your way on the weekends? charley: i've been getting in my own way. hopefully i can reach down deep. i've done it before and try and do it again. you have to be tough and patient. the greens are hard as a rock. you have to hit quality shots. hopefully i can come down the stretch tomorrow and show you what i got. peter: good luck tomorrow. charley: thanks, peter. jim: we're going to finish up with the last two on the golf course here at the r.b.c. heritage and golf links in the
6:02 pm
beautiful community of hilton head, south carolina. just amplifying what -- what charley was talking about. 74 in houston, 76 in houston, 75 in tampa, 75 at doral, his last final rounds. 80 at torrey pines. 70 at phoenix. so that's the only one under par. [captioning funded by cbs sports division] [captioning performed by the national captioning institute, which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org] jim: again, a reminder tomorrow, professional bull riding circuit continues with coverage at 1:00 eastern time. then a pga tour special that you should really see. pga tour special "making cancer history presented by m.d. anderson." and then 3:00 coverage tomorrow right here from harbour town golf links.

similar shot to what luke donald faced. this will run out about four and a half, five feet. nick: hey, that's us. that's how i'm going to get to san antonio next week. wish me luck. jim: air faldo. are you in the front seat or is leslie ann? well, our old pal pat summerall, i always think of him here at the 18th because we used to come on with what he called announcer hole openings. i'm pat summerall, i'll be describing the action at 18. calibogue sound to the left. out of bounds and condominiums to the right. and it became just a ritual. it was one of the subtleties that people probably didn't
6:04 pm
realize. he said it every year but primarily as an inside joke because we used to always kind of imitate him with his opening here at harbour town. pat passed away three years ago today. he's been on my mind very much. we all miss the great man. such a friend and we hope that jeri is doing wel. his bride, sweetheart. you can't get much closer to being in the hazard. but he's outside of it. it's chappell. he's dropped some shot here in the late going, hasn't he? nick: be careful. you grab a 60-degree too quickly and you stub it a little bit, you're going to mis-hit it considerably. so sometimes it's wise to grab
6:05 pm
the 54 or 56 for this one. jim: easy. nick: oh, that came out so fast. jim: it's hard to shake off the bad break you have at 15. nick: yeah. jim: didn't hit a good job but for it to be wedged up right against the edge of the bunker on the outside part of the bunker up against the lip, virtually no shot to -- to play with his fourth. led to a double bogey seven. when i look at this leaked and i think most years, it ends up being chaotic on sunday. you get these players from four or five back in many cases. you know, brandt snedeker did it before. there have been a number of players through the years that have stormed from behind and made the big comeback. programs as many times as any tournament i can recall.
6:06 pm
nick: the most obvious one is zach johnson. again, horses for courses and keep it under the wind. one under today. jim: matt kuchar at three. kevin na had a big day. 66. sensational round. and that included even a five at the 18th. marc leishman with a good score. whee kim, 68. colt knost under par, even for the tournament. david toms, stan limit spencer levine. ben crane is at even. jason day giving away a lot too. here is the par attempt for chappell. jason day in a press conference this week said that last week at
6:07 pm
augusta -- we kept thinking he was growing to break through with shooting scores. still was in it on sunday. he said he woke up sunday morning and was mentally not as sharp as he was through the first three days. said he got kind of beat up after the first three rounds. all the conditions. nick: that could be. his only weakness, his immune system. mentally strong, great swing but so many little things seem to upset him. jim: and surrenders one more shot. his caddie there, colin swatton always a part of the story. lives here in the area. along with his wife lisa and family used to own a prominent restaurant here at harbour town.
6:08 pm
old cafe europea. so there you go. 54 holes complete with luke donald the leader alone. we are back at 3:00 eastern tomorrow and the lineup again tonight at cbs at 8:00, "ncis: new orleans," criminal minds, 48 hours. for sir nick. lance barrow, steve milton all the crew and fellow announcers. jim nantz saying so long from the r.b.c. heritage until tomorrow.
