. . .Like the special touch of having most of Monday’s participants wear the green sock over their right leg as a show of support for Green. Among the PGA TOUR pros who volunteered their services Monday besides Calcavecchia, Baird, Thompson, Baker-Finch, and Nick Price, were Steve Marino, Jesper Parnevik, Brett Quigley, Fredrik Jacobson, Ken Duke, Richard S. Johnson and Kevin Johnson, as well as Bob Murphy and Dana Quigley of the Champions Tour; Michelle McGann of the LPGA Tour and Ryan Armour, Tom Carter, Jason Caron, Ryan Garrity and P.H.
