SCOTT VAN PELT
THEY ALWAYS SAY IT STARTS - THAT, YOU KNOW, THE MASTERS STARTS SUNDAY ON THE BACK-9. YOU AND GREG NORMAN PROCEEDED, FOR THE REST OF THE TOURNAMENT, TO JUST GO BACK AND FORTH AND BACK AND FORTH.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YEAH.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
IT WAS BRILLIANT. IT WAS AMAZING TO WATCH. I'M HOPING YOU CAN DESCRIBE IT FOR US. ON 10, THE BIRDIE YOU MAKE, YOU TAKE THE LEAD, DID YOU FEEL LIKE THERE 'NOW I'M - I'M STARTING TO MAKE A MOVE'?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES UH, WHEN I BIRDIED NUMBER 10, I WAS PLAYING A GAME PRETTY MUCH LIKE I DID ON - ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. UH ... AND UH, YOU KNOW, THAT WAS ... THAT WAS A GREAT FEELING UH, PLAYING UH THE BACK-9.
 
BUT OBVIOUSLY UM, I HAVE TO SAY THAT WHEN HE WAS STANDING ON - ON THAT UH PUTT ON 11 UH, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT SOMEHOW THAT HE WAS GONNA MAKE THAT ONE. UH ...
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
REALLY?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YEAH, WHEN HE HIT THAT PUTT, YOU KNOW, HALFWAY, IT LOOKED REALLY GOOD. AND WHEN - WHEN THE BALL WAS JUST LIKE 4, 5 FEET SHORT FROM THE HOLE, I SAID 'WELL, THERE IS NO WAY THAT BALL IS - IS GONNA MISS THAT HOLE.'
 
SO UH ... UH, AND THE EXCITEMENT OF THE CROWDS, YOU KNOW UM, I THINK THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF - OF THE TOURNAMENT.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
WELL, AS A - AS A PAST CHAMPION UH, CLEARLY THE - THE UH, THE PATRONS THERE AT AUGUSTA NATIONAL, THEY APPRECIATE YOUR TALENTS AND THEY - THEY APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAD BEEN THROUGH.
 
BUT YOU ALSO KNOW THAT IN MANY OF THEIR HEARTS, THEY'RE PULLING FOR GREG NORMAN.
 
(JOSE LAUGHS)
 
THEY'RE NOT ROOTING AGAINST YOU. BUT HE'S BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH THERE AND ENDURED SO MANY HEARTBREAKS THAT - THAT THEY WENT WILD AFTER THAT BIRDIE ON 11.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YEAH SURE.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
AND THAT DIDN'T - THAT DOESN'T - THAT DOESN'T CAUSE YOU ANY, I DON'T WANT TO SAY PAIN,
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
NO.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
BUT THAT'S NOT - THAT'S NOT DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH, IS IT?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR THAT OTHERWISE IT MIGHT AFFECT YOU. UH, BUT BEFORE I TEED OFF, I KNEW THAT, YOU KNOW, UM ... EVERYBODY WAS UH CHEERING FOR GREG UH, AS UH, AS THEY WERE WHEN UH, WHEN I PLAYED WITH TOM UH, IN '94.
 
UH, UM ... BUT YOU KNOW, UM, I UNDERSTAND THAT. UH, YOU KNOW, THE - THE CROWDS UH ...
 
UH, FELT UH ... FOR GREG IN - IN A BIG WAY. BUT I REALLY DID ENJOY THAT UH, UM ... THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE ... UH, PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, SHOUTING AND - AND SCREAMING AND - AND CHEERING FOR GREG.
 
UH, I THINK IT MADE UH, IT MADE UH THOSE MOMENTS UH, UNFORGETTABLE.
 
1.11.56
(VIDEO CLIPS OF '99 MASTERS SHOWN)
SCOTT VAN PELT:
NEXT UP THE FAMOUS PAR 3 12TH. WHERE SWIRLING WINDS CAN PLAY HAVOC WITH ANYONE'S BALL.
NORMAN WAS TIED WITH OLAZABAL AT 6 UNDER WHEN HIS TEE SHOT CAME UP SHORT BUT HE MANAGED TO STAY OUT RAY'S CREEK.
NORMAN NOT LUCKY ENOUGH HOWEVER. AS HE FAILED TO SAVE PAR.
OLAZABAL FROM BUNKER WOULD FAIR BETTER. DEMONSTRATING THE SHORT GAME GENIUS HE POSSES TO SAVE A 3.
12.21
SO THE FINAL PAIR MOVED ONTO THE PAR 5 13. THE SPANAIRD LEAD BY ONE WITH 6 HOLES TO PLAY.
FOR THE MOST MEMORABLE HOLE OF THE EVENT JUST AHEAD.
 
I DIDN'T HIT A GOOD TEE SHOT. UH, HE HIT A WONDERFUL TEE SHOT (TAPE GLITCH) ... JUST PAST THE HOLE. UM, MY 3RD SHOT WAS NOT GREAT. BUT, I MEAN, WITH THAT FLAG THERE, I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A CHOICE UH, GOING FOR THE FLAG.
 
SO UM, I AIMED A LITTLE LEFT OF - OF THE HOLE. UM, AND WHEN HE MADE THAT PUTT UH, SOMEHOW I KNEW I HAD TO MAKE MINE. I HAD TO KEEP UH, MY MOMENTUM GOING UH, AND STOP HIS.
 
UH, AND THE ONLY WAY TO DO SO WAS UH, JUST MAKING MY PUTT. UM, I HIT A ... I HIT A GREAT PUTT. WHEN I HIT IT, I THOUGHT IT - IT WAS UH, IT WAS WELL STRUCK UH, AND IT - IT HAD STARTED ON LINE.
 
BUT HOW MANY TIMES UH, HAVE WE HIT WONDERFUL PUTTS AND - AND YOU KNOW, UH ... AND MISSED THEM ...
 
UH, TOUCHED THE HOLE OR WHATEVER AND MISSED IT, MISSED THE PUTT? AND WHEN - WHEN I SAW THAT BALL GOING IN THE HOLE, THAT'S UH, AS I SAID BEFORE, THAT'S WHEN I REALLY FIRST ALLOWED MYSELF TO - TO THINK 'WELL, MAYBE ... UM, MAYBE THIS IS MY TOURNAMENT.'
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
THE MOMENT THAT I THINK MOST FANS WON'T EVER FORGET, PERHAPS ... THEY'RE NOT EVEN THE PUTTS. IT WAS JUST THAT GLANCE THAT YOU GAVE GREG AND THAT GREG GAVE YOU. AND IT'S THE ULTIMATE ...
 
THE ULTIMATE DEMONSTRATION OF SPORTSMANSHIP AND RESPECT. AND THAT - THAT'S SOMETHING, I IMAGINE, YOU PROBABLY WILL NEVER FORGET THAT MOMENT.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
CORRECT. I MEAN, WHEN I MADE MY PUTT UH, I PICKED THE BALL UP OUT FROM THE HOLE. AND UH, I STARTED WALKING TOWARDS THE 14TH TEE AND GREG WAS JUST UH,
 
LOOKING AT ME AND HE GAVE ME THE SIGN. AND UH, AS YOU SAID, UH IT'S, YOU KNOW ... IT REFLECTS UH THE RESPECT AND THE SPORTSMANSHIP UH, BETWEEN US. UH, AND UH, UM ...
 
YOU KNOW, THOSE - THOSE THINGS, YOU DON'T ... YOU DON'T SEE THEM VERY OFTEN. UH, AND IT'S SOMETHING TO UH, TO REMEMBER I THINK.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
AND NO ONE WILL EVER FORGET IT. I'M CURIOUS, YOU MENTIONED ON 11, YOU THOUGHT THAT HE WAS GONNA MAKE THAT PUTT. WHEN HE HIT THE PUTT ON 13, WERE YOU LOOKING - DID YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY?
 
OR DID YOU ... OR YOU - OR YOU MAYBE DIDN'T EVEN LOOK AND SAY 'PLEASE DON'T MAKE THIS PUTT'?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
UM ...
 
OBVIOUSLY, I WAS LOOKING. I - I WAS ... I - I WANTED TO SEE WHAT UH, HOW HE WOULD UH STROKE THE - THE PUTT AND ALL THAT. UH, BUT IT LOOKED - IT LOOKED REALLY GOOD. I MEAN, HIS UM ...
 
IT LOOKED THAT - WHEN HE STROKED THE PUTT UH, IT LOOKED TO ME THAT UH ... UH, THE SWING WAS REALLY UH VERY GOOD. AND UH, YOU ALWAYS WAIT, YOU KNOW, UH ... A FEW SECONDS JUST TO SEE HOW THE BALL IS REACTING ON THE GREEN.
 
AND UH, HALFWAY UH ... I STARTED TO THINK 'WELL ... I DON'T - I DON'T LIKE THE LOOKS OF THIS.' (BOTH LAUGH)
 
UH, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOU KNOW, UM ... IT'S AGAIN PRETTY MUCH LIKE ON 11 WHEN - WHEN THAT BALL WAS LIKE UH 2, 3 FEET FROM THE HOLE. I UM, I KNEW THAT BALL WAS GONNA GO IN.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
BEFORE WE FINISH THE THOUGHT ON ... ON UH, ON 13. YOU WERE SAYING THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO BE PUT IN THOSE POSITIONS. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU ARE PUT IN THAT POSITION AND YOU'RE ABLE TO RESPOND AS YOU WERE,
 
I THINK THAT THAT TELLS YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHETHER YOU'RE READY TO WIN A TOURNAMENT OR NOT, DON'T YOU?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES. I MEAN, THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF THE GAME. UH, WHENEVER YOU'RE UH ... UH ...
 
FACING A SITUATION LIKE THAT, UH, AND YOU OVERCOME THAT SITUATION, UH IT MAKES YOU REALLY PROUD OF - OF YOURSELF AND - AND ALL OF WHAT YOU DO.
 
(BREAK)
 
16.00
SCOTT VAN PELT:
AFTER THE UNFORGETABLE 13TH. OLAZABAL AND NORMAN TIED AT 7 UNDER BUT NOT FOR LONG. AFTER A WAYWARD TEE SHOT. NORMAN FACED A 156 YARD 2ND SHOT FROM THE ROUGH.AT THE PAR 4 14TH. THE RESULTING SHOT CAME OUT HOT AND LONG AND LEFT. NEEDING TO GET UP AND DOWN TO SAVE PAR. HE CHOOSE A PUTTER FROM WAY OFF THE GREEN.
 
16.19
AND CAME UP SHORT. WAY SHORT. FRUSTRATED. HE DROPPED ONE OFF THE PACE WITH JUST 4 HOLES REMAINING.
AND A PAR 5 15TH. LOOMING.

SCOTT VAN PELT
AS YOU LOOK BACK AT - AT 15, WERE YOU SURPRISED THAT - THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO GREG HAPPENED TO GREG?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES, I - I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT - THAT SHOT UH, THAT 3RD SHOT FROM GREG UH, ON - ON 15. UH ...
 
UM, THE WIND WAS SWIRLING A LITTLE BIT. UH ... UH, AND I THINK UH, YOU KNOW, HE WAS JUST AIMING BETWEEN THE FLAG AND - AND THE BUNKER. AND UH, WHEN HE HIT THE BALL UH, I SAW THE BALL WAS DRIFTING TOWARDS RIGHT, MAYBE THE WIND UH TOOK THE BALL OR WHATEVER.
 
BUT IT WAS NOT UH, IT WAS NOT UH, A SHOT THAT YOU EXPECT UH ... BUT AT THE SAME TIME, AFTER - AFTER I HIT MY SHOT UH, WHAT HAPPENED THERE IS THAT UH, I HEARD A BIG CHEER UH ON 16 UH ...
 
AND UH, THE WHOLE PICTURE AGAIN WAS - WAS PRETTY TENSE UH, BECAUSE I ... I SAW DAVIS WALKING VIRTUALLY FROM THE LEFT OF THE LEFT BUNKER ON 16. AND I WAS - I WAS LOOKING AT HIM AND UH ...
 
AND I WAS SAYING TO MYSELF 'OH COME ON, THERE IS NO WAY ...' AND - AND I KEPT ON LOOKING AT HIM AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, HE WAS - HE KEPT ON WALKING TOWARDS THE FLAG AND ... AND HE PICKED THE BALL OUT OF THE HOLE.
 
AND I SAID ' MY GOODNESS, HOW IN THE HELL CAN THAT MAKE THAT SHOT FROM THERE?' UH ...
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
IT'S NOT POSSIBLE, IS IT? I MEAN, YOU'VE - YOU'VE SEEN THE TAPE. WE'VE ALL SEEN THE TAPE. I MEAN, THAT'S - THAT SHOT CAN'T BE DUPLICATED, CAN IT?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
UH, I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES UH YOU CAN - YOU CAN HIT A CHIP FROM THERE AND MAKE IT. UH ... UH ...
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
HE ONLY HAD TO DO IT ONCE FORTUNATELY FOR HIM.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YEAH, INCREDIBLY (???).
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
SO - SO AFTER DAVIS NOW MAKES THIS IMPROBABLE CHIP, AND - AND GREG IS NOT ABLE TO CONTINUE APPLYING THE PRESSURE,
 
ARE YOU NOW MORE WORRIED ABOUT DAVIS? AND ARE - OR ARE YOU JUST WORRIED ABOUT THE FACT THAT NOW THE TOURNAMENT IS - THERE'S STILL MUCH TO BE PLAYED, ESPECIALLY WITH THE TEE SHOT ON 16?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES, THERE WAS A LOT OF ... A LOT OF UH, GOLF TO BE PLAYED. OH, I KNEW I HAD TO REALLY PLAY WELL, THE - THE LAST 3 HOLES. UH, AND UH, HITTING UH, HITTING THAT 6 SHOT - 6-IRON ON 16, UM, I THINK THAT WAS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE UH,
 
I - I MANAGED TO MAKE A BIRDIE THERE. AND IT'S - AND AGAIN, IT GAVE US UH, 2 SHOTS. AND 2 SHOTS PLAYING THE LAST 2 HOLES, YOU KNOW UH, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN, BUT UH, OBVIOUSLY I FELT MORE COMFORTABLE HAVING 2 SHOTS THAN ONLY 1.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
AS BRILLIANT AS THE TEE SHOT WAS ON - ON 16, THAT PUTT, I DON'T KNOW IF PEOPLE CAN APPRECIATE HOW EASY IT IS - I MEAN, IT - IT WASN'T LONG, BUT YOU COULD'VE MISSED IT BY TWICE AS MUCH AS THE LENGTH OF THE PUTT IN THE FIRST PLACE, COULDN'T YOU?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
CORRECT ... CORRECT. IF UH ... UH, IF I'VE GOT THE CHOICE UH ...
 
OF A 3-FOOTER TO WIN A TOURNAMENT OR TO MAKE IT UH, THAT WAS NOT THE ONE I WOULD CHOOSE, THAT'S FOR SURE. UH, IT WAS VERY QUICK UH, WITH A - WITH A BIG BREAK LEFT-TO-RIGHT.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
YOU CAN'T STAND PROSPERITY BECAUSE ON 17, YOU IMMEDIATELY PUT YOURSELF RIGHT BACK IN POSITION WHERE YOU'VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT SOMETHING AND YOU DID. UH ...
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES, YES.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
AN AMAZING SHOT FROM OUT OF THOSE TREES ON 17.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES, I'D ACTUALLY MISSED THE TEE SHOT. UH, I HOOKED IT A BIT. UM, I NEVER GOT THE BALL UP IN THE AIR SO UH, THE BALL HIT THE PINE TREE AND JUST UH ...
 
WELL, THAT BALL WAS UH, ON THE ROUGH. UH, AND I HAD TO FACE LIKE UH, MORE OR LESS, LIKE A 200 YARD SHOT. UM, SO I - I DECIDED TO HIT A PUNCH SHOT WITH A 5-IRON, TRIED TO PITCH THE BALL UH, I DON'T KNOW,
 
DOWN AROUND 20, 30 YARDS UH SHORT OF THE GREEN AND TRY TO GET THE BALL THROUGH - THROUGH THE GAP BETWEEN UH THE LEFT BUNKER AND THE RIGHT ONE. UH, I ...

SCOTT VAN PELT
NOTHING TO IT. (CHUCKLE)
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
WELL (CHUCKLE) ... UM, I HIT A GREAT SHOT.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
YES, YOU DID.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
UH, IT WAS - IT WAS A GREAT SHOT. I WAS UH, UM ... REALLY VERY PLEASED UH WHEN I SAW THAT UH, BALL ON THE GREEN.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS GONNA STOP SHORT AND THEN IT ROLLED ALL THE WAY TO THE BACK. AND SO NOW YOU HAD A VERY DIFFICULT 2-PUTT. I BELIEVE GREG NORMAN SAID, 'YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW TOUGH THAT 7 FOOT PUTT WAS FOR PAR.'
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES, YES.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
SO YOU - YOU MENTIONED CRITICAL SHOTS, AGAIN, I HAVE TO THINK THAT WAS ONE OF THEM.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
YES, YES. UH ... UH, WHEN I WAS HITTING THE FIRST PUTT, THAT BALL KEPT ROLLING AND ROLLING. AND I WAS REALLY, YOU KNOW, IMPRESSED WHEN I SAW THAT BALL UH, YOU KNOW, 6, 7 FEET PAST THE HOLE.
 
AND NOW THE PROSPECT WAS NOT VERY GOOD AT ALL BECAUSE UH THE GREEN WAS REALLY EXTREMELY FAST. AND UH, IT WAS DOWNWIND, UH ... WHEW, NOT THE KIND OF PUTT YOU WANT TO FACE.
 
AND UH, WHEN I MADE THAT PUTT UH, I KNEW THAT UH, YOU KNOW, UNLESS SOMETHING UH REALLY BAD HAPPENS ON 18, THE TOURNAMENT WAS MINE.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
STANDING ON THE 18TH TEE ON SUNDAY AT AUGUSTA WITH THE SUN SETTING IN THOSE PINES, AND ALL THOSE PEOPLE ... UH, I ...
 
I'VE GOT TO THINK YOU CAN - YOU CAN TAKE JUST AT LEAST A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE THAT THERE CAN'T BE ANY MORE BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN THE WORLD RIGHT THEN, RIGHT NOW, THAN TO YOU.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
I REALLY ENJOYED THAT WALK ON 18, THE WHOLE UH, WALK UH ... FROM THE TEE UP TO THE GREEN. UH, YOU KNOW, UM, I THOUGHT ABOUT SOME OF THE SHOTS UH, DURING THE ROUND.
 
UH, I THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT WAS UH, GOING TO HAPPEN UH, IN A FEW MINUTES TIME. AND I REALLY ENJOYED EVERY BIT OF IT.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
DID THE FACT THAT GREG NORMAN MADE THAT WALK WITH YOU ADD TO THE UH, ADD TO THE MOMENT FOR YOU?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
IN A WAY, YES. THEN IS WHEN I ALLOWED MYSELF TO - TO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU MENTIONED BEFORE, ABOUT WHO I HAD UH ... UM ...

AS - AS AN OPPONENT UH PLAYING WITH ME. UH, AND UH, HOW MANY TIMES HE HAS BEEN IN A SITUATION LIKE THAT. UH, AND I FELT ... I FELT IN A WAY, I FELT UH, SAD THAT UM, HE WAS NOT UM ...
 
HE WAS GONNA BE SHORT AGAIN OF WINNING THE MASTERS.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
IF - IF YOU WERE NEVER TO WIN ANOTHER MAJOR AGAIN, TO HAVE GOTTEN BACK THERE AT THAT PLACE WHERE IT ALL SORT OF STARTED FOR YOU, COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE AMAZING, I WOULD THINK.
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
CORRECT. UH, I'M - I'M REALLY PROUD OF THAT. UH ... UH ... YOU KNOW, WHATEVER HAPPENS UH FROM NOW ON UH, I HAVE TO KEEP ON PLAYING GOLF. UH, UM, I WOULD LOVE TO KEEP ON WINNING TOURNAMENTS. IF - IF I MANAGED TO WIN UH, ANOTHER MAJOR UH, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.
 
BUT UH, THIS ONE WILL ALWAYS BE UM ... UH, THE MOST SPECIAL ONE I THINK.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
I GUESS ONE OF THE FINAL THINGS I WANT TO KNOW IS, AS A - AS A CHAMPION AT THE MASTERS, YOU'RE UH ENTITLED TO COME BACK AS LONG AS YOU'D LIKE TO ... AS LONG AS YOU WISH TO COME BACK, YOU CAN GO AND YOU CAN PLAY AND DO WHATEVER.

DO YOU SEE YOURSELF, IF YOU LOOK FAR, FAR DOWN THE ROAD, AS AN OLD MAN GOING BACK TO AUGUSTA NATIONAL, EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT PLAYING, JUST TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF THOSE PLACES,
 
AND YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES AND REMEMBER 1994 AND 1999 AND, WHO KNOWS, MAYBE ANOTHER YEAR OR TWO AS WELL, AND REFLECT ON WHAT IT IS YOU DID AT THAT MAGICAL PLACE?
 
JOSE MARIA OLAZABAL
THAT WOULD BE GREAT. I MEAN UH, IF - IF UH ...
 
IF I EVER HAVE THE - THE CHANCE AND UH - TO - TO BE BACK THERE, I DON'T KNOW, WHEN I'M WHATEVER, 60 OR 70, YOU KNOW UH, UM ...
 
BE STANDING MAYBE, YOU KNOW, JUST UM, BESIDE THE OAK TREE THERE BY THE CLUBHOUSE AND ... AND THINK ABOUT UH, WHAT I DID MANY, MANY YEARS AGO UH .... UH, THAT WILL BE UM ...
 
THAT WILL BE FANTASTIC. THAT WILL BE UH ... UH, I DON'T THINK THERE WILL BE UH ...ANYTHING BETTER THAN THAT.
 
SCOTT VAN PELT
WHILE OTHER MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP VENUES MAY NEVER PROVE AS HOSPITABLE TO OLAZABAL, AUGUSTA NATIONAL WILL FOREVER BE A SECOND HOME, A GOLF COURSE THAT REWARDS BOTH IMAGINATION AND COURAGE, ATTRIBUTES JOSE HAS IN ABUNDANCE.
 
THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US.
