In general throughout the season, Riley was our leader on and off the course. The 79s are not something he'd like. He had less than adequate two days of putting, but otherwise he struck the ball very well.
He (Riley) was especially proud to show his support for President Bush today as he sets out to do for the rest of the nation what Gov. Riley has already begun here in Alabama - investing money where it counts, in the classroom.
I wanted no part of politics. And I wasn't in Berlin to compete against any one athlete. The purpose of the Olympics, anyway, was to do your best. As I'd learned long ago from Charles Riley, the only victory that counts is the one over yourself.
I wouldn't say that was the turning point in the game. Riley had to make a lot of good saves in the game. If I had to describe our effort (Saturday) I would say it was less than inspiring. We didn't play well but I can't complain too much, we're up a game.
