I'm Bob, in 1980 I was working as an Assistant Prosecutor in Jersey City, NJ. I had never played a round of golf and only gone to play miniature golf and make a fool of myself at a driving range. In my county the superior court judges had what was called judges playday where as a group have a golf outing at an upscale country club. The local bar was always welcome to go but the cost was way beyond what an Asst Pros. could afford. The county prosecutor was an avid golfer and knowing we were underpaid gave all the attorneys the option of playing his public course on playday. If you did not play you had to work. A no brainer there. One of my friends in the office who played gave some basic lessons and understanding golf etiquette. With a borrowed set of clubs the big day came. I shot a sizzling 127 ( could not forget that score ), however because it was callaway scoring I won. And then by some miracle I also won the longest drive. ( As a group we were not very good ). I have never looked back. Softball, tennis, basketball good bye. Got my wife to play, one daughter got a golf scholarship. Retired now I play 150 rounds of golf a year. The best is I have more friends than I have time to play with. I am a lucky guy. A thank you to the late James T. O' Hallaran former Hudson County Prosecutor and retired NJ. Superior Court Judge.
