6:16 pm
to carry that bunker. jim: this shot right here. an: the bunker you see right there, if you hit a straight drive, that's the one you have right side. the if you don't draw the ball, it's in the fairway. but if you can fly it 315, 320, the corner of the left bunker but usually if you through into the rough just short of the water. lost it.he dottie: that ball is in the bunker.ight jim: how close did it get up to he slope of that bunker? dottie: i don't think the slope s going to be a huge factor, jim. jim: there it is. a couple, three feet back

bunkers at the par 5 18th hole, which will be the hole of the playoff if that is necessary. that is vegas right there. ian: yeah, he'll have to splash out from that lie and with that lip. kind of like chappell. up the left side as he can. play atley might have a the green but will have an easier shot up the fairway to the left side to get an angle in for the third. characteristic drive for charley hoffman there. big cut to the right. seen that all day. ian:. no very good driver of the ball. strong. jim: surprised by what vegas did off the tee? by where heurprised aimed. it looked like
6:20 pm
hit a draw around the bunkers, rather than opening up and he did in ver like regulation. dottie is the breeze similar to ago when they played? dottie: it's the same. hasn't changed. will not have a play at the green. not at all. 191 but that's risky wind is still out there -- fiercely rcey ownwind as it was an hour ago. dottie: maybe half a club. downquarterering off the right. 124 to b.,
6:21 pm
>> 124 to b? >> yeah. >> is it 50? >> i would say that's right of he scoreboard. ian: great view of exactly what faces. just to the left of the little. et it in the short grass. dottie: hit a little cut the all will get up a little bit quicker. be advantageous. decent contact but a big bounce. first cut. the ian: he'll have a decent angle. it all depends on the lie. jim: now what will vegas do?
6:22 pm
be surprised if he didn't just splash it out and limb. re he misses the surely he can't get to the green, dottie, from that lie with that lip? dottie: ian, he's got an 8-iron in his hadn't. it. going for jim: hit the little. dottie: left of the flagstick. cover? have enough to jim: wow. ian: unbelievable shot! going to have a similar shot to the one he had at the ation but look chunk that came undone when he that lip. y top of and like what happened with 17, it still propels forward enough. carrying.eet from jim: that had actually already he aved a little bit so didn't cause it, but he didn't t it and with all that overspin, it runs just through the green.
6:23 pm
inch over the lip t hits into the grass. barely an inch. brave play. it's paid off. jim: dottie, were you surprised that that was his approach? yes. : i will say [laughter] jim: ok. dottie: it had to be perfect and was. knows how difficult that shot is from just over the in the thickish rough. very quick down the hill. can still hit it in there inside 10 feet and theally have the shorter of putts. it's not an easy clip for vegas.
6:24 pm
with the recent a similar type lie, all. and >> straight downwind. six short? did. saw what chap's >> but he was in a divot. 105ish? > 106. >> number? ian: did i hear a big 60, dottie? yards to the hole. he has three beyond it. that 11 number come out of the caddie's
6:25 pm
jim: oh, no. ian: jumped out of there. first bounce. clean lie but because of that downslope coming out of the get , it's not easy to hat one close. jhonattan when he walked off the green in regulation back over to that spot where he had bladed his third shot. at it.down probably had no idea that he'd get a second crack at it. similar. this one is actually easier than one he had in regulation, i would say. the angle is
6:26 pm
little more green. jim: can be slightly more ggressive. ian: they must be very similar as well.o the hole ottie: they are. you'd be getting the string out it out if it was match play. chance to as a become one of very few that have gone back to back in canadian history. there was a pro back in 1919 and atlanta, james edgar who one of those two years that won, brought a 17-year-old to ur named bobby jones play in the open. look at this shot. beautifully done. similar shot. jim: so much better. wonderful touch there, jhonattan vegas. justap
6:27 pm
charley has to hole his to tie. mess around there either. well, that's a four. it comes down to one shot. just a few weeks ago, ian, we were sitting at the travelers and we saw jordan spieth hole a bunker shot in a playoff. certainly did. unlikely. im: dottie, what do you see? flagstick out. ottie: very, very good life. wind.open and into the he has more control with this. jim: good shot. come on now. effort.derful jim: we have a champion.

6:29 pm
of missed cuts, not playing great golf. change in mybit of irons this week and it was magic, to be honest. it's fun. fun winning, especially in a crowd like this which has always been fun to me. enjoyed every moment. dottie: you made some changes in whatequipment but mentally was the biggest change to get yourself in a position to win a after coming off such a tough stretch? >> i'm the type of person that on myself.down i'm always fighting hard, always doing the right thing. i'm always staying positive. s soon as i stay in that frame of mind, i feel like things are going to go the right way. just tried to stay positive and play hard every day. -- shot our second hot from the fairway bunker in the playoff. alk about the process. 181 yards, and the club you chose. >> the ball was sitting great and i kne i
6:30 pm
air, there's enough wind to get the ball close to the green. feel like i've been swinging the clubs great all week. aggressive. that's my personality, the way i play and i was. enough to come out with a win. dottie: the presidents couple is on the horizon. how much does that play into you for the or rest of this season? >> obviously the presidents custom has been on my mind the and especially after winning here last year, putting myself in a good position to team.he it will be awesome. nick pricing is such a great guy. feelalways liked him and i like making that team would be my career. ecial in i feel i made a stem guard today so hopefully keep playing well and make the team. congratulations on a special weekend. >> thank you. amanda: you said i've been lot. a i have to be patient. do you
