"if" you "remember correctly"... ? winning money off of future hall of famers something that happens to you a lot? enough where you might not remember correctly?

Reading through this thread its amazing to see the personalities that many have had an opportunity to tee it up with.

Alas, I've trailed behind a few groups that had a famous name but none in any group that I've played in.

 

I would like to offer this though as perhaps comparable.

 

Years ago when I was a kid I worked my way up the caddy ranks at Yale Golf Course.

As usual I showed up at the course @ 6:30 am hoping for an early morning loop - double bag / 18.

 

The Caddy Master / Starter called my name right away when I arrived -

I ran up the hill to the first tee and he introduced me to my players :

Dick Siderowf who had one of the most illustrious amateur careers in the U.S and his partner that morning,

#42...Jackie Robinson.

 

Dopey kid that I was it never occurred to me to ask for an autograph from either at the end of the round.

Probably one of the reasons the Caddy Master asked me.

Would never expect to see him on the course.  How did he play?

Didn't play with him, but I was standing on the practice green this morning and I heard a voice that was very familiar to me. I turned around and Morgan Freeman was standing next to me. One of the kids I was helping with their putting stroke looked at him and says, "Hey, that guy's in Batman!"  Pretty cool.

If I were him I would nickname my ball "Miss Daisy".

Probably why I'm not him.

Would have been funny if the bumper of the car in that movie had a "I'd rather be driving a Titleist" bumper sticker. :)

A couple years ago I played in a group behind Trace Adkins' foursome while he was in the Minster area for Country Concert.

Roger Brown ( Former Pro foot ball player Detroit Lions) "Steel Curtain"

 

Roger and I used to golf frequently at NAS Miramar. He was a marketing executive for MacDonalds and used to organize a lot of their tournaments. I haven't seen him in several years though.

Detroit Lions != Pittsburgh Steelers. Good player. Not a member of the Steel Curtain though.

 

Ivan Lendl, does that count? Played with him a few times in West Palm area.

I am not a big football fan, maybe I minsunderstood him, or he played for both?  When I knew him, he was tall and lanky, but saw photos of him in his prime and he was a pretty big guy...one photo shows too kids doing pull ups from his arms.

post #120 of 151

messed that up too...actually he played for the Rams for a time.  He DID represent McDonalds though!

 

They named their son  Roger also......Kid had curly hair, and they called him RB. Sold his home in Mira Mesa. We had a regular foursome  Roger, Myself, Phil Berglund, and some other guy whose name I can not recall. Only other pro player I knew was Sid Edwards who owned a bar in Tierrasanta (San Diego). Never played Golf with him though.

Well, Lendl won 8 Grand Slams and is second all-time on the ATP tour in career wins. That would be the equivalent, in golf major wins, of Tom Watson's record and would be one fewer than Hogan and one more than Snead or Bobby Jones. What would you think of someone on a tennis forum asking if Watson, Hogan, Jones or Snead counted as famous people?

Three of Lendl's five daughters play golf in the SEC, two for Florida and one for Alabama.

I would think, "why the hell am I on a tennis forum?" Tennis is almost as boring as soccer and all those shorts??? Puh-lease!!
