    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.

    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.

    Grant Waite and Tim Clarke

    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.
