Pete Dye died.  Diabolical,  a great nickname for the man who tortured golfers around the globe.  He designed a lot of world class courses and a lot of fun munis and clubs around here in Indiana.  He was 94. 

I saw him at the PGA at the Straits years ago at a practice round and he couldn't understand why people wanted his autograph, he was a great crusty old guy.  He still had a home a mile or so south of me, on Crooked Stick but think his days were mostly spent in FL/SC.  His wife died last year.
tortured me many times, most notably at the Ocean Course at Kiawah

amazing talent

I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

The dunk was awesome on its own, before I realized what he was doing.
