Stupid Golf Stuff

Some golfing lines for your next round with the guys or girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I use them during our pro-ams, our playing partners love them.

A ‘Rock Hudson’ - a putt that looked straight, but wasn’t. 

 A ‘Saddam Hussein’- from one bunker into another. 

A ‘Yasser Arafat’ - butt ugly and in the sand. 

A ‘John Kennedy Jr.’ - didn’t quite make it over the water. 

A ‘Rodney King’ - over-clubbed. 

An ‘O.J.’- got away with one. 

A ‘Princess Grace’ - should have used a driver. 

A ‘Princess Di’ - shouldn’t have used the driver. 

Looking for Work after the Firing

Searching for Work after the Firing

A couple of days on Mackinac Island were good for the soul, I hated to leave, but a new job search was necessary. The PGA was in the Quad Cities and the Champions Tour was in Minnesota, I figured I could split my week and talk to a few guys on each tour. We headed for Illinois on Sunday, arrived Monday evening after checking on my van in Milwaukee, and spent a couple of days roaming the parking lot, practice facility, and clubhouse area talking with anyone who would listen.

First Hole: Learning the Ropes and Having all Sorts of Fun

A quick look at my first couple weeks on tour

1988 was a blur, both physically and emotionally. I was escaping from a bit of misery, learning a new occupation, and trying to establish relationships with folks who didn’t want to be bothered with a new kid on the block. The grizzled veterans scoffed at my exuberance and didn’t want some veteran caddy’s brother tugging at their pant legs talking about golf. They had seen it all, done it all, when caddies had it tough. A naive newcomer wasn’t welcomed in the ranks. These guys remembered days “professional caddies” weren’t allowed to work certain tournaments, when there were signs announcing, “public welcome, no caddies allowed.
