“His mind wasn’t even on golf, which kind of let me know, ‘He’s reasoning this could be it’, and from stories that I’ve heard, at the victor’s supper at Augusta that year, he was stating very similar things, possibly not playing aggressive golf once more.
“To think in two years what’s occurred, it’s mind-boggling. It’s a major ordeal to returned from what he has and I don’t think individuals very acknowledge what has gone into it.”
