Greer Wylder Outback Steakhouse has the feel of a speedy, airport restaurant -- bustling crowds; oak booths, bar top and flooring; and passable food. The decor is just different enough that you know you're not in a T.G.I. Friday's. That and the boomerangs, kangaroos and koala bears sprinkled throughout to give it that down-under feel. You get the feeling that an exact replica of this restaurant exists in hundreds of cities throughout the world. The manufactured Australian theme is a tribute to American ingenuity.

Australian Rodger Davis returns as the defending champion after his four-stroke victory over Larry Nelson gave him his first Champions Tour title. Davis set a 36-hole tournament record during the first two rounds (64-65 -- 129) and narrowly missed . The win gave Davis victories on five continents -- Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Dana Quigley is scheduled to play in his 225th consecutive event -- a span of more than six years -- and will make his 239th straight appearance for which he's been eligible when he tees it up next Friday in the first round of the Toshiba Senior Classic.

The man shouted, "Remember the [Costa Mesa] Globe Herald and Bill Doner?" I thought to myself, "No, but I recognize the names because I wrote a story about two months ago on Doner." During the interview, Doner mentioned his upbringing, which involved guiding the engraving machines at the Globe Herald. The Daily Pilot formed when the Globe Herald bought the Newport News Press. But enough of the history lesson, on with the story. McGavack, one of the five golfers in my group for Monday's charity fund-raiser at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club, which benefited the Orange County High School of the Arts, calmly walked up and said he graduated from Costa Mesa High in 1965.
