Sometimes, it all comes down to one shot.

As soon as the Inside The Ropes crew asked Rodger Davis about his memories of winning the 1986 Australian Open, he instantly flashed to his superb approach to the 71st hole at Metropolitan Golf Club.

And, trailing playing partner Graham Marsh by a stroke and with leader Ian Baker-Finch in strife behind, it couldn't have been more timely.

"I hit a 5-iron … to a foot. Marshy made five, I made three and all of a sudden, game over," Davis said.

In a wide-ranging interview, Davis also recalled the times he had Australian cricketing icon Keith Miller as his caddie and the lessons they both learnt from playing alongside Jack Nicklaus during the Australian Open.
