    Fluff - Augustine Golf Club. A lifetime ago when he was still Tiger's caddie. At hole #2 when he was heading back to the clubhouse. I drove by thinking he looked a lot like Fluff. Confirmed when my playing partners spoke with him.



    Ai Miyazato - Strawberry Farms Golf Club. At the range. She's so small. It's a wonder how she was able to compete in the LPGA, much less be ranked #1.



    Darrell Green (Former Redskins player) - Journey At Pechanga. Big fan. Next to me at the range. I'm a lefty so had my back to him most of the time. Was there for an outing. Wasn't sure it was him till someone called out his name at the putting green.



    Byron Scott - Oak Quarry Golf Club. At the practice area. iirc, someone in his group approached us on the putting green about attending some fund raiser.



    Dennis Franz (Hill Street Blues TV series) - Don't remember the course. It was somewhere in LA about 15-20 years ago. Saw him on the tee box while waiting. I remember thinking "Hey, that's Sipowicz".

    LPGA player Vicky Hurst. Saw her on the range and just watched in awe as she hit one pure shot after another. My friend I was playing with knew her and chatted with her for a bit. Seemed genuinely nice and was, at the time, working on some rehab post an injury.

    A bunch of TN Titans and Predators were at my former club in Nashville.



    Vince Gill and Amy Grant.



    Mike Ditka at a course in Naples.



    Played in a celebrity pro-am with country singer Steve Azar and one of the guys from Run DMC (he’d never been on a golf course before).



    I told Barney Miller he couldn’t play through our group....I didn’t recognize him.



    Spanky from the Little Rascals and Don Drysdale in my group once.



    Charley Pride.



    T. Boone Pickens joined our table for drinks once after a round.



    Used to play golf with a few songwriters in Nashville and Faith Hill showed up to try and get a song out of one of them during lunch. It was before she was a superstar.



    Jerry Reid owned a condo on a course I played in college and he’d follow us around drunk and heckle/bs with us.



    Played at Crystal Downs and was hitting balls and casually chatting with a nice old guy....found out he was the recently retired Chairman of the Board of Shell Oil.

    Played with him and his wife at a local public track about 25 years ago. They each had two bloody marys for breakfast and then they killed a 12 pack during the round. Friendly, absolute laugh riot—-both of them. Not accomplished golfers but a helluva lot of fun. That was a good day.

    I use to marshal @ AT&T Pro Am. Saw a lot of celebrities, ( they look different in person, so I learned to keep my mouth shut) Kevin Costner nailed me with his approach shot " I was aiming at you and hoping you would stop my ball " I still have it in a shadow box.

    Playing Spanish Bay in Monterey. Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley playing behind us, but way behind us. Didn’t even realize it until the back nine. Saw them hit a few but never backed up for us to even casually run into them. This was many years before cell phones so no pictures.

    I saw Steve Harvey around 2009 at Grandover Resort in Greensboro NC. He was coming off the course and I was walking to the putting green. I tried not to act star struck and just gave him a head nod and what's up. He acknowledged with the same.




    Was he wearing a pinstripe Golf polo with nine buttons on it?

    If any of you guys are bowlers, I once played a round with PBA bowler Patrick Allen. Bowls left handed but swings a golf club right handed.



    And NFL Bill Parcells has been in a group in front of us before.

    Marcus Allen, Too Tall Jones, Deron Cherry (I'm good friends with Deron,s brother). Met them all on a trip to Deron,s annual charity event in KC. We played a private course somewhere in Missouri. Pete Rose at Polo Trace in Fl, in the pro shop, it was pouring rain & we didn't play, but he was complaining about a slow group holding him up, pretty much screaming at the Pro about it. Dr J at Blue Heron near Atlantic City, great guy.

    I've played in 13 LPGA pro-ams over the years, notably Morgan Pressel, Dottie Pepper, Laura Diaz, Lizette Salas, Angela Stanford, Karen Stupples. Not sure if that counts as famous people I "ran into at the golf course" or not.



    The only random celeb I played 18 with was former NHL-er Rory Fitzpatrick. I assumed he'd smash the **** out of the ball being a former pro hockey player, but he quickly admitted he only plays 2-3 times a year.

    I have never met anyone famous on the course. I did get to crash at Hank Kuehnes girlfriends apartment at SMU and got to have dinner with him and some other golfers that evening. I didn't golf at the time, so I had no idea who he was. I could tell the guy came from a higher class of living than me, but he never acted like it. Truly a good dude. Got to hear some tiger stories. Barely knew who that was.



    Now if someone could get me hooked up to play a round with Jamey Johnson that would be great.

    Last year I was in SoCal playing the Ike course at Industry Golf Club and Norm McDonald was behind us. Terrible golf swing and judging by his speech he was most likely on Xanax. I love Norm to death, but not sure I would want to play golf with him haha.



    Many many years ago at Amherst C.C. in Amhest, NH Steven Tyler of Aerosmith was a couple of homes in front of us. I didn't realize it until after the round. It was Mothers Day so I am sure he was in town to visit his parents who used to live in a fancy retirement home in the area. Steven Tyler sightings were quite common, but didnt expect to see him on a golf course.

    I have always liked Paul Goydos...especially that dry, self-deprecating humor. I imagine he was fun to play a round of golf with.
