    If he was working the golf tournament, I am betting it was amphetamines. If your job is watching golf, you have to stay awake somehow.

      More to it than hit the papers. There was serious late night commotion outside the area where he was found but being beside an Interstate Highway, there is NO reason to open your blinds and get involved! It’s a shock to open your blinds the next morning and see the medics, coroner, police, and people from the crime scene outside your first floor window!
