As we drifted a strong current in Shinnecock Bay, bouncing jigs along the bottom, a small school of albacore started jumping near our boat chasing baitfish. Our host for the morning and one of the conference organizers, Chris Paparo of Calverton, became extremely animated. “Cast your bait beyond the leaping fish and reel your jig in as fast as you can along the surface,” he shouted to the writers on board.

As happens often in a game, Carr had no time to center the ball in his hand to find the laces—he had to throw the moment he got it in his right hand. And you noticed the color of the tight spiral was totally brown.
