Most "interesting" character you've met on the course

Recommended Posts

Now that's frigging cool right there dude! Ya'll weren't drinking stunk liquor were ya?

That's cool and scary all at the same time.

 

Did he at least leave his clubs behind for you to grab. Ha

There was no booze involved beforehand but we all needed one afterward. And there was zero trace of him, equipment or otherwise. For weeks after it happened I tried to rectify the disappearing man by forcing this weird moral dilemma on myself that assumed the stranger who joined us for one hole had somehow slipped silently into the greenside pond and drowned when his bag full of clubs dragged him to the bottom; all without any of us noticing. Bizarre right? I hadn't actually thought about that day for a really long time. I'm pretty obsessed with logic, but much as tried, I never came up with any reasonable answers for what we witnessed that day. Had some serious goose bumps reliving that incident penning the prior post.

A few years ago, we were at some friends in Eastern Washington, Small town, School is 1 building for ALL grades..  just hangin out... My buddy John introduced me to another friend that lived there, Dennis, Great guy.. He had taken the club building course through Golfsmith and lived on the local course, 1st fairway.. couple months later we are back, played golf with John and Dennis, went to the Bar played some golden tee.. Dennis say's come up to the house and I'll show you my shop. so after a few beers and golden tee we head to his house.. from outside his shop, we were hitting balls across the 1st fairway with a few clubs he had built.. planed on playing the next morning. Middle of the night the Town Fire alarm goes off, we think nothing about it.. get up the next morning and Dennis's wife calls, he had past in the night..2 week later was his memorial on the 1st tee of the course.. Perfect day not a cloud in the sky about 85.. we are standing there and all of the sudden a siff cool breeze kicks up, just as the minister was done speaking it stopped.  afterwards we were talking and my wife bless her heart states " It was Dennis doing a drive by in his cart"... we all lost it... Every time I play that course on the 1st tee a breeze kicks up... Every time..

I was playing a practice round with 2 college teammates at Cedar Creek in San Antonio. We are standing on #9 tee (our last hole of the day) when a single walks up and asks to play the last hole with us. We all play the hole together, shake hands and turn toward the clubhouse. I turn around a moment later to chat with the stranger but he was gone. Except there is seriously nowhere for him to have vanished. The 3 of us look at each other and my buddy says "Where did he go?". I reply "Seriously, did he fall in the water hazard or something?". We look everywhere starting with the water hazard, no sign of him anywhere. We were seriously confused so I tell the guy in the Pro Shop about the stranger's disappearing act and he tells me the description sounds just like a regular who died after being struck by lightning on that hole the previous Summer. Hand to God, I have no better explanation than we played #9 with a dead guy.

The actual Woody Harrelson.At a local public course by my home.I remember on the first tee how familiar he looked. Half way thru the round his smile-speech and laugh clicked.He told me his name was Tracy on the first tee? I asked his partner mid round how he reminds me of Woody Harrelson.He looked at me and laughed and said that is him.His partner told me to keep it between our foursome as he enjoys his privacy.Found out he was visiting a very sick relative in the area between a movie shoot.Just an all around great guy.

 

(Edit) the unusual thing about him was his love of 70's movies.He would rattle off all the famous lines and add his own twist.I found this odd, since he was so young at the time.He was like an archive of all old movie quotes all round.A very talented "everyday type" of guy.I know it was only met him for a round of golf.But been a big fan of his ever since

I just watched him in his best movie Wilson and I can remember the other movies babe but it was about a teenage girl and he was her high School teacher, they were pretty funny

I got paired with an older woman a couple spring breaks ago and she was a bird watcher. But not just someone who knew the names of birds or had a good eye, I mean full out ditching the cart and heading into the woods every hole bird watcher. The conversation throughout the day was just really strange and the round was astoundingly long. Made for a funny story after though.

I played with a retired High Court judge once who was hilarious. He had loads of stories of criminals who had crossed his path over the years and the kind of sentencing he gave depending on his mood.

He jokingly sentenced me to death by hanging when I beat him 2&1.

He didn't want to do it, but he felt he owed it to them?
