  1. I saw a short intro to a book about a prolific golfer, Ralph Kennedy. I never heard of Ralph Kennedy. Here is the intro about John Sabino's book, Golf's Iron Horse: Ralph Kennedy played golf on 3,165 different courses in 48 states, nine provinces and more than a dozen countries. In total, he played over 8,000 rounds of golf during his lifetime. He was featured on a couple of Saturday Evening Post covers, radio and tv shows and was the topic of many stories from golf and sports reporters of the day. He was compared with Lou Gehrig during his playing days. Like Gehrig he was tireless. In 1931 he played 160 golf courses. While other golfers had played a lot of golf in the past, Kennedy kept the scorecard from each course he played. No one else had that type of proof. During his lifetime, Kennedy met all types of celebrities and, in fact, became one himself. I am pretty sure I will come up short of the accomplishments of Mr. Kennedy. I might look for the book in the library.
