    They say deaths come in threes... Charlie Sifford, Billy Casper and Dean Smith. Hopefully that's it for a while.

    RIP to three very influential men.

    More tour wins than Trevino and Floyd combined. Think about that. Certainly earned the distinction of being part of the Big Four even if that took a while to sink in. And a great person.

    Came back from 7 down on the final day and beat Palmer the next day in an 18 hole playoff. That is almost unbelievable.

    May they all rip. Played in an LPGA tournament lady weekend in the Bahamas. Befriended many of the girls. Was with a few of the 19, 20 and early 20s girls-players and my friend and I mentioned Billy Casper died. They said "who is he"? We were blown away.. pro golfers not knowing who BC was or knowing his golf accomplishments. Sad
