"I woke up a few times last night because I knew I had to play Jim," Rubis said. "But it was awesome playing him, because he has such a storied history behind him here."


The duo has played each in the past during Championship play back in in the 1980's and memories were definitely present during the Seniors match Friday.

Strandemo even flashed off his signature putter in the air move after sinking a putt on the fifth green, which brought back memories for Rubis.
