Default Rounds with disc golf legends?

A couple of weeks ago I was playing doubles at Kit Carson Park in San Diego. It wasn't until after the round was over and I went home that I realized I was playing with Shane from Voodoo Disc Golf and disc golf legend John Kirkland (I'm fairly knew to the disc golf scene).

I was wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else before and who you played with or met?

I've met John but haven't played a round with him personally. One time I took a buddy of mine to doubles league for the first time. I had just introduced him to the game a few months prior and he was just starting to get really hooked and prepare for his first tournament later that month at that same course.

He drew John Kirkland as his doubles partner and played against Gregg Hosfeld and another local on the card. I told him to 'take notes' and that he was playing with legends. He said he had a great time and they taught him so much... and of course he cashed in his first league.

Being an Orlando local, Hosfeld (Grandmaster, not quite legend-age, but a frisbee legend for sure) is easy to find out on a course and I've played many a round with him over the years. He witnessed an ace of mine one day a few yrs back and signed it. It was a proto star champion roc3 that I sadly lost at a tournament during pre-round warm-ups about a year later.

Biscoe I find it hard to believe Juliana isn't on that list.

I've play a round or 3 with John Houck. I think that is pretty rare.

I played with our own Donavan who once held the most holes played in a day record. Does that count?

Back in summer of 2003 I got to tag along for a couple of rounds with Timmy Gill. Much of what I know about throwing discs, I learned from watching him do his thing that day.

His blackballing by the PDGA sure was legendary
