I've played golf with Notah Begay (4 time tour winner and Tiger's buddy) several times. I have also played with Buck Rogers (Gil Gerard) in a scramble once. My Dad's played with Phil Mickelson a couple times.

Didn't play with them, but back in the mid-90s, while stationed in San Antonio, I'd frequent a lighted practice range on regular basis and one time George "The Ice Man" Gervin walked up and started hitting balls next to me and started talking to a couple of us. Really friendly and complimented my swing as I did his. Also ran into Dave Cowens at the same facility later on. (My friend got his autograph).
I got a lesson once at a clinic that included Erik Barzeski.
Actually, I never played golf with him, but I met Julius Erving on a golf course. At PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. Funny anecdote about that - I was playing with my friend Gary who is a great guy but not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Anyway we're playing & word gets out the Dr. J is on the grounds filming a commercial. So when we finish our round I look over at the practice green & there he is surrounded by about 20 people. So me & Gary walk over.
On our way there, Gary turns to me & says "Which one is Dr. J?"
I just fixed him with a look & said, "Gosh Gary, do you think it might be the black guy that's a foot taller than everyone else?"
bolded is outstanding
played with Mike Schmidt at a charity event once...great swing so smooth
Aaaaaaaaahhh.....the ICE MAN! He was one of my favorite players back in the day when I still watched NBA BB. LOL...............
Larry, Magic, Mike were the big 3 but there were others too. The Dr. and the Ice man, Domique and others......................
I quit watching the NBA in the late 90s, but I remember #44 (Iceman) well!!!
I played with Tim Clark and Lee Jansen
Ya you will see a few time to time. A lot of pros take their Kids to the kanakuk golf camp. So you'll catch them playing around.
We were trying to help him out with that!I gave him out with that!
I gave him a business card and sent him a letter.
