THURSDAY NOTEBOOK

*I walked six holes with Brian Davis. Here’s a funny story that gives you a sense of his sense of humor. On No. 6 a caddie of one of the amateurs Davis was playing with asked him if he could get him a date with the girl in the white shirt (I was wearing a white shirt). Davis looked at him with a straight face and said, “That’s my wife.”

The caddie, with a horrified expression, stuttered, “I’m so sorry.”

“I can’t believe you asked me that,” deadpanned Davis. “Just walk away. I don’t want to look at you.”

Eventually Davis couldn’t torture the caddie any longer and told him he was just taking the piss.

Bend over: Brian Davis chips it to tap-in range on No. 8

*Spotted at the Beer Garden: Anthony Kim, who grew up in La Quinta but isn’t in the field this week, having some drinks and shots with his entourage and two blondes. Standard. AK was wearing his red hat backwards to the side, with a matching argyle sweater. He left around 11pm. Early!

*Picture time!

No. 9/18 (I think) at Nicklaus Private

Michael Putnam is feeling a little better than last week and says his game is getting closer

YIKES: First-round leader Derek Lamely followed his 63 with a 73, which included a quintuple-bogey, four bogeys, six birdies and an eagle

Freddy Jacobson, the best 5-handicapper in golf, shot 65-70, putting him at T13 at the moment

No. 4 at Nicklaus Private
