Would never expect to see him on the course.  How did he play?

Didn't play with him, but I was standing on the practice green this morning and I heard a voice that was very familiar to me. I turned around and Morgan Freeman was standing next to me. One of the kids I was helping with their putting stroke looked at him and says, "Hey, that guy's in Batman!"  Pretty cool.

If I were him I would nickname my ball "Miss Daisy".

Probably why I'm not him.

Would have been funny if the bumper of the car in that movie had a "I'd rather be driving a Titleist" bumper sticker. :)

A couple years ago I played in a group behind Trace Adkins' foursome while he was in the Minster area for Country Concert.

Roger Brown ( Former Pro foot ball player Detroit Lions) "Steel Curtain"

Roger and I used to golf frequently at NAS Miramar. He was a marketing executive for MacDonalds and used to organize a lot of their tournaments. I haven't seen him in several years though.

Detroit Lions != Pittsburgh Steelers. Good player. Not a member of the Steel Curtain though.

Ivan Lendl, does that count? Played with him a few times in West Palm area.

I am not a big football fan, maybe I minsunderstood him, or he played for both?  When I knew him, he was tall and lanky, but saw photos of him in his prime and he was a pretty big guy...one photo shows too kids doing pull ups from his arms.

messed that up too...actually he played for the Rams for a time.  He DID represent McDonalds though!

They named their son  Roger also......Kid had curly hair, and they called him RB. Sold his home in Mira Mesa. We had a regular foursome  Roger, Myself, Phil Berglund, and some other guy whose name I can not recall. Only other pro player I knew was Sid Edwards who owned a bar in Tierrasanta (San Diego). Never played Golf with him though.

I once played a round with an organized crime "BOSS" and his two top men, there the most famous people you'll never hear of around here ;-)

Well, Lendl won 8 Grand Slams and is second all-time on the ATP tour in career wins. That would be the equivalent, in golf major wins, of Tom Watson's record and would be one fewer than Hogan and one more than Snead or Bobby Jones. What would you think of someone on a tennis forum asking if Watson, Hogan, Jones or Snead counted as famous people? Three of Lendl's five daughters play golf in the SEC, two for Florida and one for Alabama.

I would think, "why the hell am I on a tennis forum?" Tennis is almost as boring as soccer and all those shorts??? Puh-lease!!

:-P

[ words failed me. ]

I've never played with anyone (in)famous.  Most likely, I probably did but didn't recognize any of them for what they are.  But this is a cool thread.

    • Welcome to TST! Once you've played golf you'll always come back to it regardless of the length of the gap or age. Enjoy the journey!
    • Admirable!   Me--No matter where I bring my hands on the backswing, it's the downswing and impact speed that determine how far I flight a ball.  I might bring the back to shoulder, then my brain computes the distance and decelerates the club. On short shots, just the opposite.  Maybe tempo is my problem, but I do okay trusting my brain to the throw the club.  Too much technique and thinking really mess me up in the longrun.
    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag. 
    • This is disconcerting as I was Pfizer'd and if given a choice, back in March, I said I'd take Moderna, but because it was easier to store, not that I had some foresight of its effectiveness relative to Pfizer.
