Name the 3 in Step Players
























“NAME THE PLAYER” IS BACK with a three-player edition. Who are these three in-step players? Do they look familiar? I expect at least one or two do.

The photo was snapped at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. I confess that I can only identify two of them, so I need your help. Good luck.

Justin Leonard is the player in the back. The one in front looks like David Toms, but I'm not so sure of that (Andrew Svoboda is another possibility). And I'm thinking the middle-man is Joe Ogilvie, but I'm not so sure about that, either.

Being a threesome, one assumes it is Thursday or Friday. Those two days Leonard was paired (in 2008 at TP) with Jeff Quinney and Mark O'Meara, and these aren't them. On Saturday and Sunday they played in twosomes.

Could it be a practice round? The caddie isn't wearing a bib, so it may well be, but the fourth guy in step is a rules official, so what's up with that?

And that is all the research I can do tonight! :)

Nice work, Lewis. You are correct on Leonard and Toms. (Someone else, via email, also identified Toms.) I think your Ogilvie guess for the middle man is a good one. The middle player is the one I could not identify.

And, yes, the photograph was snapped during a practice round.
