Years ago I caught up with the Actor from Silver Bullet and Under Seige 2, Everette McGill, on a golf course in Flagstaff, AZ. So just wonder here met some Famous Person during a casual round of golf.
Gary Player was in the group behind me at Pelican Hill.
Second one was Michael Jordan. He was apparently looking at buying into a restaurant in Toronto, and came to play both of our courses. I guess he likes to buy memberships at courses in areas where he does frequent business so he always has a place to play.
Saw him at a celebrity event I played in back in the late 90s . He had 3 packs of Marlboro Reds in the cart. 3 packs for. 5 hour round lol
Played Celtic Manor 2010 this year and met Ryan Giggs. A true gent and was quite surprised he's a right handed golfer.
Was teeing off for a late twilight round with a couple of co-workers when the starter asked if we would mind letting a single go first. We said sure and up rolls Deacon Jones. He introduced himself and thanked us for letting him go off first. He teed off and after he cleared the landing area on the first hole we never saw him or his big Rams staff bag again. The starter said he played there often and fast.
A few years ago I was on the range in the Seal Beach area and there was a very pretty young lady testing clubs with a couple of guys on a launch monitor. She was hitting brand new Srixon Z-stars that they were pulling from boxes as she hit. She seemed very nice and was friendly. I later learned it was Paige Mackenzie. A year or two later she became a regular on the morning drive on the golf channel.
I saw Lenny Dykstra once at a local tourney, does that count?
what course was Deacon playing ?
Saturday after Thanksgiving...group behind me was a 3some that included darryl strawberry. I was in a group with 2 guys who were 70+ and my 4.5 yr old who hits from where I hit and then we pick his up.
The old guys, as nice as could be, were dreadfully slow. We let strawberry's group go through on 8 tee even though there was nowhere to go..course was packed.
After 16 holes and a hole open ahead of us I excused myself from the gentlemen I was playing with so I could finish up and get my son some lunch.
I catch strawberry' group on 18 tee and ask to play in with them.
Strawberry hit some massive bombs on the baseball field but he's not a very good golfer. Probably drives it 240-250. I'm 5'8 175 and carry it about 270.
Golf is a funny game.
