Forgive us for a bit of melancholy today: It's been 10 years since we lost Pete Farricker, a co-worker at Golf Digest who inspired all who met him. "The world has changed incredibly," Editor Jerry Tarde says of the past decade, "but the things we liked about Pete still shine through." A Japanese maple and plaque in the ol' redhead's memory remain outside our office, and Jerry's beautiful column from 2001 can be found here.
