    Stuart Appleby. Loved his golf swing and approach to the game. Also enjoyed rooting for him after what happened with his wife. Seems a good guy.

    SA was the pro at the drawings party before a BMW pro-am I played in. He took a shining to the beautiful lady I was with and openly hit on her, right in front of me. Now I'm a former fan of his.

    Remember when he was all the rage and assumed long drive heir? Haven't seen his name in a high profile tournie in years

    Yeah, anyone know what happened? Injury, misguided swing change or just "golf is hard?"

    Oh no worries...the irony is I was fan boi-ing him initially...then he took over! Gotta admit his hand action was pretty good if you know what I mean.

    Not my favorite and I do believe he still plays, but a few years back I enjoyed watching European Tour coverage and seeing Raphael Jacquelin swing the club.

    Briny Baird, haven't seen him since he lost on the 6 th playoff hole to Bryce Mulder in 2011. I remember them both driving a short par 4 in the playoff. Baird had the distinction of having won the most money without a win on the PGA tour with 13 million. He will be of champion tour age in 3 years so we may see him again.

    In one of the other threads, grm24 put up the list of PGA Tour medical extensions and Briny was on there as a Major Medical extending back to the 2017 season.

    Elk, but he seems to have found a niche in his off the course businesses. Chris Demarco too but i saw him at a Champions event in August.

    Martin Kaymer. Obviously not close to being a senior but he's pretty much fallen off the map. He might be the most unheralded great player of the last ten years or so. I loved his game and the way he carried himself.

    He's had quite a few rounds in the 60's the last couple months. You might start to see him popping up in contention in the near future.

    Last I heard/saw Grant was hanging around Ocala Florida area. He’s been playing moonlights/Florida professional/west Florida. His son osten has developed into a nice player.

    Luke Donald for me

    He has been slowly coming back from his herniated disk basically took 6 months off in the middle of 2018. His short game is still super sharp though from what I saw before I left Florida.

    I think Brian Davis now owns the distinction of most money with no win, but Briny has major back issues to go along with double shoulder surgery in 12-13? I don’t know as that he comes back from that unfortunately, I know he has really been enjoying the home life with his kids. But he may make a run at the Senior Circuit especially if he can get a cart, but walking 54-72 holes is a challenge for him still I think.

    He’s been playing in Europe and having a fair/good season no wins I don’t think but I do seem to remember a couple top 5s and a runner up over the summer.

    Thanks for the info BN, I had read he had an injury but didn't think It would be career ending, tough game this golf. Hopefully he recovers enough to get some time in on the Champions tour.
