Who's in the hunt at the Arnie? Huh? Yes, Huh.

Because of his amusingly ambiguous last name, John Huh has jokingly been referred to as Johnny Question Mark.

Except that uncertain moniker may soon be changing.

You see, the man whose name raises all sorts of questions appears to have all the answers at The Arnie. He seems comfortable in every facet of his game — and his name.

When he was young, he'd get angry when the other kids would make fun of his name, but now he embraces its distinctiveness. He's even considered putting a logo of a giant question mark on his golf bag.

"Now that my last name is probably like the most unique last name on the Tour, I try to enjoy every moment when fans call my name," said Huh, who fired a 3-under 69 Friday and is only two strokes behind co-leaders Justin Rose and Bill Haas heading into the weekend at Arnie's place.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if this 22-year-old kid actually won the tournament and spawned the PGA Tour version of an Abbott and Costello comedy routine. Can't you just hear it?

Costello: "Who's in first?"

Abbott: "Huh."

Costello: "The guy who won The Arnie, what's his name?"

Abbott: "Huh."


Abbott: "Huh, I said."

Costello: "No, I'm asking YOU to identify the name of the winning golfer at Bay Hill?"

Abbott: "For the last time, I'm going to tell you, Huh won the tournament!"

Costello: "Who?"

Abbott: "Huh."

Costello: "Huh?"

Abbott: "Duh!"

Huh not only has one of the most unique names in golf; he has one of the most unique stories, too. He is the PGA Tour's answer to Rocky and Rudy — a man who had a dream and then went out with everything he had and made that dream happen. His life story can be summed in the dozen words of his favorite quote:

"The pain of sacrifice is nothing compared to the pain of regret."
