I met Greg Barsby while playing his home course. He jumped in and played a round with my friend and I. Extremely cool guy. Just amazing watching him shed the course and take some local routes. I also met Avery Jenkins while traveling in Denmark this year. Very nice guy. Didn't seem to mind any of the ridiculous questions I was asking him. Both professionals were very approachable and cool. I have had nothing but positive experiences with professionals.

I have a friend who used to have a nice 1970s VW van. He's had at least two, maybe more, world champions share a "peace pipe" (if you will) with him in there.

It's too bad those VW vans didn't run better...

could be. I thought he lived in Menomonie Falls though. I could most definitely be wrong. My cousins live in Sheboygan...its about 30-40 mins north of me.

I have enjoyed reading the replies. I also realized along the way the Pro's we enjoy watching are very kind to all of us and I thank them for the stories they helped create. My vacation is over, back to the grind. Additionally, the two cousres I played in Clearwater were Cliff Stephens and Coachman. They are very nice, Coachman forces you to play low on many holes due to the tree cover. Stephens has lots of water, lots of fun, lost only one on 14. I get to play there twice a year and let me thank the local players for keeping up such good courses and treating me and my son very well.
