Al Geiberger has never seen a replay of the magical round of golf in 1977 that transformed him into "Mr. 59," and provided a marvelous legacy he never expected for his PGA TOUR career.
"I've never even seen myself make that putt on the last hole," said Geiberger, now 69, recalling his historic second round of the Danny Thomas Memphis Classic. "I know the feelings that were going through me, but I'd like to see it from another point of view."
The easy-going Californian proudly claims, however, being the answer to a trivia question in one of those bar-room scenes when Cheers was a popular TV sitcom.
"I think you have arrived when you're a sports trivia question on Cheers," Geiberger said with a laugh.
