It could just as easily be summed up as, At the clinic, he was not in tournament mode, or even shooting a round mode. No pressure, no errant shots to screw up his head, no competitors trying to get into his head, etc.

IF we are trying explain the inner workings of another's mind or mindset. Which we really shouldn't do.

I've never met the man, but I've heard a whole lot more good stuff than bad. Everyone has an off day or three.

Genuine question. Did you return the disc to be thanked, or because it was the right thing to do? Seems to me that you made a good call, regardless of the reply. Sometimes, doing the right thing is enough thanks in and of itself.

I was joking when I said I should have kept it.

I like Philo and have no problem with him.


Here's the rest of the story. Philo was playing the BHMO and lost a Firebird. I had heard he and his caddie spent a lot of time looking for it but no luck. A few months later someone gave it to me. I mentioned to his caddie that I had it and dude said Philo would be excited to get it back. The next year, I ran into the caddie and he said Philo heard the disc was found and was stoked. So, with all that buildup, to have him practically ignore me when I gave it to him was a little disappointing. That's it. No big deal in the grand scheme of things. No hate for Philo.
