jim: just a few seconds past the top of the hour and i want to welcome those of you just tuning in here for the final stages of the r.b.c. heritage. looks like we have a winner in branden grace from south africa. there's one golf shot remaining that could alter the outcome. it would have to be the rare eagle from the fairway, as luke donald is two shots behind. russell knox sharing second. he charged today with 67. bryson dechambeau, what a start to his professional career with a tie fifth. it's just past midnight in south africa you could tell by grace's reaction, this is a very big step in his career. nick: absolutely huge. he'll start thinking of even bigger and better things. he's committed to the american tour now. so wow, what a great way to
6:03 pm
start. you have your exemption. you're going back to augusta national next year. [captioning funded by cbs sports division] [captioning performed by the national captioning institute, which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit] jim: luke donald looking at the next shot here. a nod to zach, the caddie for branden grace. he's caddied for gary player and louis oosthuizen. in fact, he was with oosthuizen at st. andrews in 2010 when louis won. the open championship. no doubt his assistance today has gone a long way. tonight on cbs, it all begins with "60 minutes," "madam secretary," "the good wife," elementary. the "60 minutes" story, you've been warned about what to do and say on your phone but after you
6:04 pm
see what "60 minutes" found out about hacking your phone, you won't need to be warned again. nick: that's why they're just one yard away, they can't be hacked. stay close. jim: that's what it was. be careful who you hand your phone over to. now, luke donald. peter: he's going to have 199 yards. perfect lyrics perfect stance. jim: does he know he's two down, peter? peter: they both do. jason kokrak just walked by and asked me if branden grace finished at nine and i said yes. he looked a little bit dejected by that. jim: do you think he walks away if he ends up second, share second, does he walk away degeorgia teched? he had the lead for much of the weekend. nick: for luke?
6:05 pm
disappointed but the fact he hasn't won for four years, you're never sure about your nerve. the game went down and climbing his way up now. i think at the end of the day, maybe tomorrow, he'll say at least i built up my nerve. his putting stroke is fabulous. the smoothness of the way his left-hand looks past his swing looks good so maybe one more crazy, fantastic shot. jim: dottie and peter have talked all week about holeouts. there's the flag. nick: he went for it. just came up a couple of yards short. jim: we have a champion. there he is. nick: he's probably calling gary player right now. in fact, i guarantee gary will
6:06 pm
be calling him very quickly. jim: kokrak still has a lot to play for. luke donald is in that bunker. peter: he's got 197 yards and 7-iron. coming into today, this was the 10th time that luke had a 54-hole lead and he's really only converted two of those into wins. jim: three would be huge for kokrak but he's going to have to hole it from all off that right side. a big miss. nick: you could see in his shoulders before he even hit, that he was looking slumped, dejected. you have to stay with it. it's worth a few shillings the last hole. jim: dottie pepper, it's always fun to interview a champion fresh off a victory. it's all yours.
6:07 pm
dottie: thank you, jim. you went from missing the cut last week at augusta national to coming here and walking away with your first pga tour win. what was the difference? >> just the putting pretty much. this has putt me on the map a little. finished up 10th and i was really aiming to get back to this place. had some fun memories. i like the type of golf you have to play on this place and it's worked this week. dottie: you played a virtually flawless wound -- round of golf. when did you let yourself think that this may be the day? >> a couple of putts on the back nine. 12, 13, when i hit a couple of nice putts i knew i'm in there with a stretch. that last stretch of five holes, you can't force things. just have to stay patient and grind it and that's what i managed to do. dottie: you had a chance to make a few phone calls. who'd you call first?
6:08 pm
>> mom and dad. back home -- i'm actually heading home after the players so quite a big party when i get home. dottie: do you think you might hear from gary player? >> i'm sure i will. i just got off the phone with ernie as well. he's waiting for a plane in palm beach. it's great and i'm happy to be in this position. dottie: a lot of people are happy for you. well played. jim? jim: ernie and the champion both shot 66 today. i say friend and really, in ernie's case, it's probably more of a mentor. nick: they are very tight neither, the south african boys. he's done a great job with his foundation helping charl schwartzel, louis oosthuizen. they're kind of like a band of
6:09 pm
brothers, aren't they? jim: no question. so kokrak to play his third. peter, you had a chance to look at it. peter: it's a straightforward pitch and run under the circumstances. nick, you mentioned the slumped shoulders. when i gave him the answer that branden finished at nine under. all the air went out of his sails. which tells you how much he was trying to win this tournament. nick: then it gets expensive. peter: yeah, but you have to control your emotions. nick: it's the hardest thing, especially when you know you can't win. as you saw -- say, you let the wind out of your sails and you make some mistakes. jim: we've seen luke donald from this front bunker hit some wonderful shots in the past. needs to get up and down to share second. nick: probably will. jim: terrific bunker player. nick: yeah.
6:10 pm
jim: he's going to end up tied second. let's update the fedexcup standings. adam scott remains in front then jason day. russell knox now third. brandt snedeker and kevin kisner, who was the runner-up here last year to jim furyk. and we should mention the defending champion here still out. had surgery on his wrist. we saw him back week at augusta. anxious to get him out here playing hopefully in the coming weeks as he recovers. he was here today when it all started. nick: careful. he's going to spind a bunch down the last. jim: he could drop from fourth here into sixth. he just gave more fedexcup
6:11 pm
points and money to dechambeau and kevin na. i saw matt kuchar this week and we got to the story about how many great players have won here. he had an interesting theory. so many mayors build up getting ready for the masters to be in peak form at augusta and there's only going to be one guy walking away with the green jacket but you come here and maybe it didn't work out there. maybe something went wrong and you got off track early but you've been for weeks trying to get your game at the optimal position it can be. snowy i agree 100%. all the majors, you grind, grind, grind, get yourself ready, you play a major and have a week off. i agree totally. jim: your game has been trained to be at its best. nick: and relax. i played with ben crenshaw in 19 4, last round with ben.
6:12 pm
watched him hole the putts to win. that taught me greatness and i came here and -- nick: -- jim: won the following weekend. nick: i was worn out. i knew i was headed back to england. i'm either going to win or miss the cut. jim: it's going to be a double -bogey finish. that will move dechambeau and na into a tie for fourth. two-way tie and that did get very pricey for kokrak. fourth time runner-up here, luke donald. sharing second with russell knox. congratulations to branden grace. fabulous round of 66 to take the title. his first on american soil. "60 minutes," madam secretary,
6:13 pm
the good wife and elementary tonight on cbs. sir nick, enjoyed it, pal. nick: see you in texas. jim: jim nantz, nick faldo and all the crew saying so long from harbour town.
