Former Ryder Cup Captain and winner of the USPGA Championship in 1983
Hal shared some wonderful and honest insights into his game, his development and his view on the modern game.
Going back to the PGA Championship in 1983
On the back nine on Sunday Hal had his hero Jack Nicklaus chasing him down. He had a number of consecutive bogeys and by his own admission the thought of being labelled a ‘choker’ came into his mind.
