Change topic. Many have asked me about the issue regarding Ramon ‘TY’ Garcia and many have asked me whether we are related. First of all, we are not related. And as to what really happened, I have heard a couple of versions of the brutal murder. But I would much rather rely on what I have read on the news. About the background or the connection between the umbrella girl, the supposed culprit, and the victim—it is none of my business. Just know that there is a family who is grieving. And that family needs to be treated with respect. My condolences to the family of fellow golfer and fellow columnist, Ramon Teodoro “TY” Garcia.

Someone asked me also about the recent quarrel at Rancho Palos Verdes…you know who you are. I have no comment. Again, that is also none of my business.
