Jim Nantz Honors Justin Rose With Emotional Reading Of Bette Midler Classic

Justin Rose got his first PGA tour victory over the weekend at the Memorial tournament, which allowed Jim Nantz to reach deep into his back catalog of allusions. This week: Hocus Pocus chanteuse Bette Midler.

Here's exactly what Nantz said during a replay of Rose's tournament-clinching putt:

This is the putt that wrapped it up. And what's that Bette Midler song? How does that go? Think about his journey here.

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long …
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose


Way to know your audience, Jim.
