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.

Myself, I'm very famous in my own mind..

I hear OJ's got a mean slice.

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 anec

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).

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!!!

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.

I imagine if you hang out on those Branson golf courses you run into quite a few celebrities.

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 ended up making an appointment at PGATSS and got fit in their tour studio. Overall it was a good experience. It wasn’t as magical and data driven as seen on TXG videos appear to be, but I think I came out of it with what I wanted. I was trying to be brand agnostic, but did mention that I would buy the Ping 425 Max if I just bought off the rack. I tried maybe 3 different heads, but we primarily focused on that driver. I wasn't hitting well at all that day. But then again I don’t have a consistent driver swing. I warmed up with my flimsy Callaway Strata driver, and he asked if that was my actual swing. He said my swing speed was 80. Swinging slow and in the middle of my stance is the only way I can hit it straight, and it goes super high for about 220 and stops. If I put the ball in the front on my stance I hook it way left. Anyways when I actually swing for real, I was averaging 100-105 swing speed.  Ultimately I ended up getting a 9* Ping 425 Max with a 65g Ping Tour Stiff shaft, turned down to an 8* with the weight set to fade. At first I was a little skeptical, because I didn’t perform well there. I was still hitting it to the left. He told me I just needed some practice with it. After a few rounds last week, I’m very happy with it. I’ve been averaging about 275 with it. I’ve even hit a few 290 according to my Garmin watch! I’m so happy to have my first real driver!
    • I think that the current prices of gold and platinum that they use are reflected in the price. Seriously - what sort of idiot would pay these prices? In @billchao's post for two fairway woods I was wondering where the iron set was.  People are paying for a shafting, not shafts. Geez.
    • It always amazes me how someone can have the top 13 of anything done at the highest athletic level.     
    • Yeah I really like that Hybrid for sure. I like that you can flatten the lie angle of the G410s. I will probably mess with a G410 5w and loft it down to near a 4w. It was a blast getting to play some golf with you this past week Matt. It has been way too long since we were able to meet up for that. I was super happy that you were able to make this trip! On another note I went to the range tonight and had very good results adding a little "throw" to the downswing. I did not hit a single ball out of the bottom of the driver. I am super happy with the results as I was hitting the ball much higher. Now I just need to repeat that. 
    • I am getting very tired of these slow starts. 6-6-5-4. 6 over before  hit the 5th tee. Doesn't matter how many I hit at the range, it always seems to take me 4 holes to loosen up and settle in......
