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?

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

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.

    • rotf, here we go again, has we cannot please our over-sensitive society. The racist Cleveland Guardians baseball team must be renamed - The Spectator World Major League Baseball has failed another major test. The new name for the professional...   The new name for the professional baseball franchise in Cleveland — Guardians — must go. As several states work to remove imperialistic statues of cis white men, the city of Cleveland has reached into its racist past to honor them. This is not the progress that Nikole Hannah-Jones has been dreaming of. And while we are at it, the logo for the Minnesota Vikings must go! Here is the definition of a Viking, in which the Scandinavian the people must be fuming about: Who were the Vikings? The Vikings were raiders, pirates, traders, explorers, and colonizers during the 9th to 11th century. They often traveled by sea from Scandinavia and took control of areas of Europe and beyond.
    • ... and what would that team name be?
    • Ah, so let's resort to name-calling. I won't lower myself to that. This is how I feel, that we as a country have become too soft and oversensitive. I mean the name Indians is offensive? lol. Like I said, if they wish to name and after my ethnicity that would be just fine, I would feel honored.
    • I don't disagree that his stroke can use some work, but the ball clearly rolls for a bit and THEN jumps up in the air. It hit something. I haven't watched this yet but will be soon: I had dinner with Larry the last day of the Teacher of the Year conference at Pinehurst last December. Good dude.
    • I'll create an album and share the "review rules" later tonight. For now, there you go: a video on Sand Valley.
