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

148 posts in this topic

Just want to see who everyone says.

I've golfed with a minor league baseball player and one of the best college players today.

Patrick Rogers. I golfed with him for my sectionals in high school golf. He is amazing. It was a treat. Like a VIP pass for a pro event. But who have you golfed with?

Doesn't count but Joe Morgan was in the group behind me once.

Nobody "famous" - aside from that, I'm not the type of person to be star struck or go out of my way to interfere with a "celebrity", or even ask for an autograph.

That aside, a buddy of mine used to be the Offensive Coordinator for the Cleveland Crush (LFL - Lingerie Football League) and we golfed with Kenny Roda from ESPN 850 Cleveland.

Tommy Bolt @ Tarpon Woods GC in FL- I caught up to his 3-some after being abandoned by some 'Pro from Dover' who had all the excuses but no game and walked off after 3 holes. Mr. Bolt was as nice as his reputation was bad. One of the most enjoyable rounds (14 holes, anyway) ever. Filled out a foursome with Gene Michael, Stump Merrill and Billy Connors at Lansbrook GC in FL. A real treat for a dyed in the wool Yankee fan. Another fun round with very little pomposity and a lot of Gin.

I haven't played with anybody "Super Famous" but the best I got is a current golf buddy and a member at my home course, Peter Barton. He was an actor back in the 80's doing mostly Soaps and TV like Young and the Restless, Love Boat,,,,,,,,. He's in his 50's now but back in the day made a couple teen slasher movies and was in Friday the 13th part 4.

But more important is that Peter is a class act and I really enjoy playing golf with him. He takes the game serious but is still a fun guy to hang out with.

A short and eclectic group:

  • Tiger when he was 16 years old
  • Alice Cooper for two holes in Scottsdale (he was playing through); very cool guy
  • Marcus Allen (football RB)
  • Actors Peter Bonerz (played the dentist on the original Newhart show) and Joe Regalbuto (best know for Murphy Brown)
  • Jimmy Fox (former LA Kings hockey player and currently their TV color commentator)

I've seen a few other celebs on courses while playing, including OJ Simpson shortly after his trial, apparently out searching for the real killer at Griffith Park in LA.

Tom Brady but this was when he was just drafted.  Families were members of the same club

I would give a kidney and half my liver to play a round with Tom Brady. :-D

Brad Pitt's brother, Doug.

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.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
