A thread to discuss well known players of five or so years ago who have disappeared without a trace.

I’ll lead off. Jeff Overton. Brash, loud and no shortage of confidence. Last heard of having bad complications following a back op in 2017.

Anyone know what’s happened to Ben Curtis?

According to Rotoworld Curtis suffered a shoulder injury 4/20/17 and withdrew from the Valero and he hasn't played since.

Woody Austin... Was fun to watch. Broke a putter over his head. Worked as a minimum wage bank teller until making it on Tour for a short time. Disappeared....
Jesper Parnavik…. Wore that stupid looking hat. I believe their nanny became Tiger Woods first wife.
Rocky Thompson... Attacked the Senior Tour with the "Killer Bee" driver. have something like a 50" shaft.

Jordan...
Bring your money. Bring your ball.
WBL and I are old duffers. Your money... we'll take it all.
We can hit fairways. You ain't.
We can make putts. You cain't.
The real reason to play a round with you I can tell.
WBL wants to know if you've got a driver you will sell!!!!!

Anthony Kim. From memory had a wrist injury and if he tries a return (which fails) it jeopardizes his insurance payout.

Geoff Ogilvy. So good...what happened?

He's announced a weird arrangement where he has moved his family (including American wife) from the US to Melbourne, Australia and he will travel back and forth to PGA Tour events. I expect he will continue to slide down the rankings with that sort of arrangement.

I’ve done that trip once (Sydney not Melbourne) and that would be tough!

I think the first two are on the Champions Tour. Thompson doesn’t ring a bell.
