Who is the most famous person you've golfed with?

post #1 of 151
Thread Starter 

Just want to see who everyone says.

I've golfed with a minor league baseball player and one of the best college players today.

Patrick Rogers. I golfed with him for my sectionals in high school golf. He is amazing. It was a treat. Like a VIP pass for a pro event. But who have you golfed with?

Nobody "famous" - aside from that, I'm not the type of person to be star struck or go out of my way to interfere with a "celebrity", or even ask for an autograph.

 

That aside, a buddy of mine used to be the Offensive Coordinator for the Cleveland Crush (LFL - Lingerie Football League) and we golfed with Kenny Roda from ESPN 850 Cleveland.

Tommy Bolt @ Tarpon Woods GC in FL- I caught up to his 3-some after being abandoned by some 'Pro from Dover' who had all the excuses but no game and walked off after 3 holes. Mr. Bolt was as nice as his reputation was bad. One of the most enjoyable rounds (14 holes, anyway) ever.

Filled out a foursome with Gene Michael, Stump Merrill and Billy Connors at Lansbrook GC in FL. A real treat for a dyed in the wool Yankee fan. Another fun round with very little pomposity and a lot of Gin.

Chris Paul at TPC Louisiana when played for the hornets.

I haven't played with anybody "Super Famous" but the best I got is a current golf buddy and a member at my home course, Peter Barton. He was an actor back in the 80's doing mostly Soaps and TV like Young and the Restless, Love Boat,,,,,,,,. He's in his 50's now but back in the day made a couple teen slasher movies and was in Friday the 13th part 4. 

 

But more important is that Peter is a class act and I really enjoy playing golf with him. He takes the game serious but is still a fun guy to hang out with.

A short and eclectic group:

 

  • Tiger when he was 16 years old
  • Alice Cooper for two holes in Scottsdale (he was playing through); very cool guy
  • Marcus Allen (football RB)
  • Actors Peter Bonerz (played the dentist on the original Newhart show) and Joe Regalbuto (best know for Murphy Brown)
  • Jimmy Fox (former LA Kings hockey player and currently their TV color commentator)

 

I've seen a few other celebs on courses while playing, including OJ Simpson shortly after his trial, apparently out searching for the real killer at Griffith Park in LA.

Tom Brady but this was when he was just drafted.  Families were members of the same club

Tommy Bolt was my grandfather's cousin :)  No lie.

I would give a kidney and half my liver to play a round with Tom Brady. a3_biggrin.gif

Brad Pitt's brother, Doug.

Well, he wasn't famous at the time so it doesn't really count.

Went to school with Brad and Doug.

Played with Doug when I was trying out for the high school golf team.
