Steadman, now 78, is best known for his illustrations for Hunter S. Thompson’s gonzo journalism, such as “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” He talks about his collaboration — and many drunken, drug-addled misadventures — with the out-there Thompson, which followed the artist’s youthful ambitions to “change the world” with his acid-dripped political cartoons.

Wie held it together with two key par putts and finished with back-to-back birdies for a 2-under 68. Thompson powered her way out of the sand and weeds and ran off three straight birdies to match Wie for the lowest score Friday.
