Unbelievable, Hilarious, Forum Member Encounter/Coincidence!

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So, Wannabegolfer posts and PMs me about a trip to Jax, says he's being convention spouse at the Marriott Sawgrass and looking for a game.  So I set something up with our regular weekday group for yesterday and agree to pick him up at the hotel.  Exchange contact info.  "Oh, you're Jeff? I'm Jeff too."

 

So I pick up Wannabegolfer at the hotel at 7am heading to our round about 20 minutes away, exchanging pleasantries and bitching about the 41 degree temperature reading in March in Florida (at least it was sunny and light winds).  Driving up to the course, I see one of the other guys in the foresome and it occurs to me (finally) that I should know Jeff's last name in order to make proper introductions.  So, I ask Jeff his last name.  He says "#NAME#" (prudent internet confidentiality here).  "No", I said, "not my last name, your last name."  Again, he says "#NAME#" again. 

 

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!  Chance random internet golf get-together and I'm golfing with myself!!!  Same exact first and last names!  

 

After we stopped laughing, went over to make the introductions to Charlie, which made for another round of laughter.

 

Had a great time and Wannabegolfer even had a birdie on the toughest par 3, worth double junk (and a handicap adjusted net zero!)!

Same exact first and last names!  

 

 

Haha what are the odds

 

Well, that entirely depends on the last name.  Jeff Jones is much more likely to encounter another Jeff Jones than say Jeff Saltalamacchi.

OMG, SHUT THE FRONT DOOR AGAIN!!  Ok, that's another amazing coincidence!  You have absolutely no way of knowing our last names, unless you were a member of the MyGolfSpy Fantasy Football Challenge, which you weren't, but you nailed it exactly.  WOW!

Jax went above & beyond as a host and was even kind enough to post one of the only bright spots I had in the day (as far as my golf game goes) I had a great time and was truly treated like an old friend instead of a guy he just met with the same name.

 

Thank you again for the hospitality!!!


Today, I will do what others will not so that...

 

Tomorrow, I will do what others can not

Your very welcome, and please come visit again!  

 

Your bright spot was also accompanied by another "coincidence"!  Charlie, who has about the same handicap as you, also had a birdie for a net zero on the second hardest par 3 (these two par 3's were the #5 and #6 handicap holes on this course), by "feathering a driver" into the wind to about 5 feet.  Your putt was a whole lot tougher than Charlie's, breaking about five feet at the end, yet dropping softly into the cup (plus you hit an iron (a beauty), not a driver, into the par 3)!!!!  I've never seen a net zero, and we had two in the space of about 8 holes!
