Who is the most famous person you've golfed with? - Page 5

post #73 of 151

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).

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!!!

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.

And yep, Kickapoo High School class of '85.

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.

  I like Sir Charles. Very funny. I really feel sorry for him over that hitch swing.

Yeah, but if you don't get it on the golf course, does it really count?  :-)

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.

 

Even wrote an article about it:
