Golf, Golf and More Golf
Golf, Golf, and More Golf
In 1982, the Chicken Plant Manager became literally addicted to golf.
It became a passion that carried him throughout the United States playing many of the great golf courses. Among those course's were The Memorial Golf Course in Ohio, Pebble Beach Golf Course in California, The Heritage Course at Sea Pines in South Carolina, The Tournament Players Club Course in Saw-Grass, Florida and the Butler National Golf Course in Chicago, a former home of the PGA Western Open .
He was never able to realize one of his dreams to play The Masters in Augusta.
He also played six courses in Scotland in 1988. including the " The Old Course" at St. Andrews.
If playing a course was a possibility, it was very likely he would find the time to play it.
Today, he still plays whenever his schedule allows. Usually this is two to three times per week.

. . . And the beat goes on ~ while he doesn't hit the ball as well, as far and as often as he did 20 years ago, he still enjoys the game as much as ever. He really believes old age and golf go together like sugar and spice ~ and that's what dreams are made of.
