“I’m hoping it’s a little more low key. It’s pretty businesslike out here. You’ve got guys every week that have five or six people with them: trainers, dieticians, shrinks, short-game coaches, long-game coaches, life coaches. I’m out here by myself with my caddie, and that’s how I’ve always liked it.” – Toms, 49, who was in the mix at the Zurich Classic, on his eventual transition to the Champions Tour.
