Who Am I?
Five points

After starting the final round in 42nd place but then rocketing
into contention by shooting 63 before the leaders had teed off, I
said, "Where's a good hurricane when you need it?" When I teed it
up on Sunday, I was still mad about having missed an 18-inch putt
on the final green the day before. I had been one of the
favorites going into the Open, having finished second at the
Scottish Open the week before. That year I had four
seconds--including one at the U.S. Open, which I had won earlier
in the decade--and three thirds.
