Holy crap, I'm gonna play golf with Graeme McDowell! - Page 4

post #55 of 392

Wow that is amazing, just wondering though you said the tee time seemed a bit late to finish 18? I have wondered about these opportumities to meet sports celebrities and what is all involved, I just can't seem to help thinking that they don't really play an entire round with your group, it's like a few holes and they say good bye and move on to the next engagement, I know that would be a bummer and hope it doesn't turn out that way but I wouldn't be surprised if that's the deal. Anyways it still would be a great experience all the same.

Awesome news. I know many have said take pictures, I suggest video as well. I want to know how much farther he hits it than us average Joes.

Whoever they are, I hope they keep moving! We're playing early afternoon and it gets pretty dark around 5:30. It's gonna be ugly if we can't finish because some SOB can't drag his sorry ass around the course in less than 5 hours....

 

On that note, I'm sure your head will be spinning the majority of the time and the whole thing will be over before you know it, but it would be somewhat interesting to know how fast or slow a tour pro plays in a casual round.

 

Anyway, if any of the guys are slowing you all down, don't hesitate to lose 'em in a swamp full of alligators ;-)

I just had a terrible thought.......what if they have us play some kind of BS scramble?!  :bugout:

 

 

Talk me off the ledge.  Tell me it couldn't happen!   :scared:

@David in FL , sadly your 5.9 HC just became my 12.2.

 

"Luke, remember your training."

 

Have fun and relax.  He is human just like you.

Have you ever seen a tour pro hit a golf ball?  They are NOT human.....no way!  :no:

You'll do fine. Congratulations.

Though I've thought it was "cool," I've never cared about meeting celebrities.

 

I've met with Steve Jobs, Tiger Woods, Mandy Moore (had lunch a few times), and a few other famous people, and they're just people. I think they generally like it too, because I'm not drooling on them.

 

I don't know if you have it in you, but if you do, just try to act like he's a normal guy. You won a prize, you're excited to play Lake Nona and see how a major winner plays up close, but… other than that, it's just five dudes playing golf.

I know this is off topic sorry but I gotta ask. How good looking is Mandy Moore in person?

If it is some scramble format and one (or more) of your shots is legitimately used over Graeme that in itself would be a good memory for me.

 

A scramble format might be one of the few ways you could legitimately go head to head with a pro and say you came out on top.

 

I'm not saying wish for a scramble but if it is ... you know make lemonade.

Just remember to not play him for money and you should be fine!

It sounds like a lot of fun, tell us how it goes.

I'm an absolute mess.  I'm not gonna be able to swing a club.......!
Congratulations, I can't think of anyone more deserving of this.

If you do a swing video, we can get you in shape for this. a3_biggrin.gif

I don't know, let's think about this.....he's what, a +7 or so?  My course hcp there will be 7.  Put him on the tips and I play the 6400 yd member tees.   Match play, I think I take a stroke on 14 holes, throw a $100 bill on the table and make a run at him!  :-D

That's the spirit!! "I don't care about the money. I'm just going to outplay the guy." :-D
