Looks like Zinger behind Seve. Pinkish pants, white shirt, w/visor.
His caddie is built like a linebacker. :)

Guy in white is Seve's caddie.
(Bag in one hand and head cover in another. So you guys believe a player is doing this while his caddie hits the ball?)

Just a guess on the third player with GN and Jack - the guy with the white pants, visor, and leaning on his putter on the other side of Jack - perhaps Gil Morgan, Freddie, or Scott Simpson? All wore a visor and had hair like that back in the day.

I don't think the guy in white leaning against the bag, was a player in the tournament.  Was probably walking along with the group for the practice round.  Doesn't look like a caddie, but may have been a fill in

It's no big deal - but if you look at the second photo, it is pretty obvious they gave green hats to the caddies. Also, none of them are wearing a bib (at least for the practice round). The dude in the white prolly did not want to mess with his great hair and his "look," and stayed with the visor. Also, that is his golf bag - I recall that logo on there. Anyway, that's my story and I'm running with it.

Clearly it's Don Johnson.


honestly though, it has to be Seve's caddy.  I'd be shocked if another player would lean on someone else's golf bag... especially seve's
