What a fantastic evening! BirdieBall was invited to attend the Colorado Century of Golf Gala held last Saturday, November 14th at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.
My daughters Amy, Katie and I attended. From the accommodations through dinner and for the capping event it was nothing short of first class.
The highlight of the evening was the "fire side chat" with Jack conducted by Tim Rosaforte from The Golf Channel and Golf Digest. The two are good friends so the atmosphere was amazingly natural and casual. As the conversation began, I turned on my iphone. As the conversation went on I just kept videoing. Below is the entire interview. It is revealing of how Jack found the game and the game found Jack. From making the most meaningful putt of his life on the18th hole at the Broadmoor to win the '59 US Amateur or playing with Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer in the '60 US Open. Golf is Jack and Jack is golf. Truly a captivating conversation.
