I mean I can't go back in time and recreate said event so I have no proof. That being said the guy who told me I have known for 5+years and he was an employee of the course and the story was confirmed by more than one employee there. I don't see how it benefits anyone to badmouth any pro if you work in the golf business. Not sure what the point in making up a story like that would be but hey I you like Mike Weir I can see why, he has contributed to charity events and helped grow golf in Canada.
As for Stephen Ames, I can tell you golfers/athletes don't like people in the media so that's no surprise to me, when you read some of the articles published you can see why he may not be friendly to them. My experience was that when I met him before his round at a clinic/9hole event and after chatting we realized we share a mutual friend. Long story short he was cracking jokes and talking to me and my friends during the 9 holes in between shots.
I also know Stephen goes out of his way to help golfers from Trinidad and Tobego, Canada, his former college where he played golf and its alumni, and various other charity organizations.
He took a lot of crap for his comments about Tiger Woods when he apparently called him out but really was just complimenting the guy, when he got thrashed like 8&7 or something crazy he was still a pro about it
How can I become the 2012 Member of the year?
