The heat played a factor in several
golfer’s games. At the 18th hole,
Jordan sat down under a tent to
catch his breath before teeing off.

There were some disappointments,
Lynn Egger of Cary had been prac
ticing singing “Two out of Three
Ain’t Bad,” for her meeting with
Meat Loaf, but he was a no-show.
‘T’ve had that “Bat Out of Hell’
album since 1975.” she said, trying
to work the song into an appropriate
lyric. "There ain’t ffd Way he's ever
gonna show," she sang.
And Jordan Flake was among
those disappointed, reluming home
without the coveted Michael Jordan
autograph, despite his preparations.
There were a total of 105 celebri
ties, and partly due to the popularity
one of the organizers for the event,
said there are always last minute
conflicts, but those were kept to a
minimum this year. “He really want
ed to come.” Wilson said of Meat
Loaf. “He really regretted that he
couldn’t be here,"
Jack Ford ended up having to
anchor the Today show on Sunday,
something he did not anticipate
when he committed, Wilson said.
“Things like that just come up. and
we understand that when some
body’s making a commitment in
February, March or April.”
The program was inaccurate, but
still usable, as no-shows were
replaced and foursomes were
reworked. Most celebrities finished
the course in about five hours, even
allowing for autograph and photo
sessions after every hole.
“Everything went off with no
problems,” Wilson added. “We were
able to get everybody from Carter-
Finley'there and back without any
problem. And there was a concern
we would not have enough water for
spectators. That went great. And
the crowd itself was super."
Wilson estimated 38,000 specta
tors attended the Classic, up from
28,000 last year.
