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

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 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.

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.

    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing thing you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
    • There's been a lot of stories in the news lately that, because enough people have not been vaccinated (thus starving the virus), we may be headed towards mandates.  Not desirable but the 30% to 40% not vaccinated are keeping Covid-19 rolling right along and harming those who have done their part to help beat down this pandemic.
