So I got to sneak in 18 today. It was last second so I went solo.
Got put with an older couple and a 77 year old man.

I just thought well hopefully he doesn't slow us down too much.
1st tee he crushes it about 270ish

Talked to him and found out he played on the tour for thirty years, and was starting up his own club company. Cool thing was when he talked about playing with Palmer and Gary Player. Even gave me a few pointers and talked about a kid in England named Hawk who he said had the best swing he has ever seen.

Pat Simmons is now the most famous person I have played golf with.

Didn't he start the Tiger Shark golf company? Seems like I remember seeing ads for them in Golf Digest in the 1980's

I found a sandwedge designed by Pat Simmons about ten years ago: Alien. 

Intended to make it easy to get out of  '' the sand trap '' .

(Even in 2018 companies claim innovative wedges, based on the same principles.)  

Later I discovered that ''Tiger Shark'' had sold beautiful, sometimes strange looking, sets of clubs. 

Today I couldn't resist to buy a half set (3,5,7,9,P,S). I will try them later.

After looking at the Shark club pictures, I remember giving the local course pro a complete set (3-SW) of them last year when I cleaned out a store room. 

I remember buying them in St George, UT at a second hand store.There was an Alien SW in the set, which I wanted to try out. $20 (?) maybe, bag included.

Never used the irons, and the Alien Wedge was definitely from another planet. Tried it enough to be glad I only spent a few dollars for it. Turned out be a fabulous dust collector. 

Small world this many years later.

Pretty sure Pat Simmons is on You Tube.
