The Quiet Man

Hooked up with “Quiet Dave” this week. It was great catching up even though I did most of the talking. 🙂

Dave left the tour ten years ago and is currently retired and living the good life on the southeast edge of Tucson.

I visited his home on Wednesday and we gazed at the sun through one of his two telescopes. It was equipped with a special filter so our eyesight remains intact. Very cool and we could even see two sunspots.

Friday we took a trip to Reid Park Zoo and was photobombed by a giraffe.

For those in the know, you’re familiar with the troll that accompanied Dave on all his road trips. I’m happy to report the troll has survived and has even made a couple of friends.

I arrived in Phoenix this morning and hopefully Dave will follow, albeit for only one day. He’ll try to make an appearance on Thursday.


A caddie/player/officials party is scheduled for Tuesday. Food and drink will be provided at a local restaurant by BucketBoy Graphics. They provide the yardage books for the tour.


No more shagging putts on the practice green is a new tour regulation. Caddie or coach, it makes no difference. Wonder who will be the first violator? Just a matter of time.


Then there was this:
