the feet. nick: perfect foot action on that one. he should hit drivers out of the fairway bunker. seriously. jim: it's not going to be an easy two-putt. nick: you're right, because that was the chip shot. he'll have to putt it literally up the side of the green and down. if webb is on a little uphill lie, that will be a big help. i've seen a couple of guys -- when i congressmened earlier that was a no-no. if you're on a flat lie landing on to the downslope and the wind was downwind earlier in the morning, very difficult. but on a downslope, the guys can blast it up into the air, land it 10 feet short of the flag and it stops. jim: it looks like about six inches away from the lip of that bunker. saw his wife doud and little

baby james born about just three months ago. so a new dad. he's been playing well since becoming a father. nick: yeah, new dads always play well. it has that calming effect. it really does. jim: it does, doesn't it? what happened with brandt last week? nick: way back. my natalie is about 24. was about 10 months old when i won my first open. get on your hands and knees and play with bubba. it's wonderful. >> i was the same way. when haley was born i played my best golf. then laura was born. it was ideal. family time. nick: it's the best excuse for a dad. doesn't have to be embarrassed with -- kids on his hands and
6:32 pm
nighs and go and play with the toys. >> this bunker shot, he's got a couple different options. he can bring it out reasonably low and land it reasonably low and carry it to the ridge and run it or carry it to the top and hope to spin it. as bunker shots go, it's not that difficult. nick: i think just go ahead and play it. wow. seven. that's eight. oh, please, no. you can't stay up there. he's got bubba's putt. jim: exactly. it will be right on the spot. i thought that might run out a little bit for him.
6:33 pm
nick: because of the uphill lie. when they rake a bunker, obviously the edges get a little bit more. you always have to be conscious of that. he played it all right. just really didn't get the bounce we expected. jim: well, he's seen that putt from his fellow competitor. a lot of sand coming out of there. it's been a very positive experience, here, though, for webb simpson. saw his lead disappear and was able to gather himself. of course you have something
6:34 pm
you have to deal with psychologically too like that penalty back at the 15th hole. able to march on, hold up and played some beautiful golf here at the very end of it. nick: well, bubba has putted the long putts very well, lagged them up nicely. so his only number one thought would be if i'm going to miss this, past is better than -- passed is better than short. jim: did he hit it? nick: he sure didn't. to they're -- so they're
6:35 pm
swapping putts this time around. jim: yeah. you look at bubba with a win here -- him being 16th in the world coming in. victory here in a very good field in new orleans might be enough to move him right there around top 10. he'd join mark wilson if he wins here. as the only multiple winner on the pga tour this year. nick: right. youngster, how determined are you to stick around? >> well, you wonder how much he paid attention to bubba's putt last time around. nick: yeah. >> from my perspective it's about the exact same putt.
6:36 pm
nick: you're right, peter. and it came down right to left, left to right. probably not giving away the hole. almost like it started on the right edge and swinged back towards left edge and break back. in just got to get it started. that's the good news on this that's the good news on this one. jim: for his birdie. now watson has one putt to win.
6:37 pm
in with a five. nick: well, bubba better strike it firmer than he did in the first go in regulation. this is the one they both had on this side and if this isn't just true and firm, committed, it will break sideways the last 18 inches of the roll. jim: you know, we looked at that clip from torrey earlier this year. when he had to make a putt, he did. when he had to make a putt here, the first hole of the playoff, which was double the size of this one, he did. nick: when i spoke to him at hay, first week out. he said i've been puttinged in 10 feet. 10-footers. that's where confidence is. that's all i need. jim: that's what he did all season is practice putts 10, 15 feet and closer. this for the victory, for his
