Ever played with a touring pro?

But my favorite experience was playing with a bunch of the girls down in Daytona right before the LPGA Q-school. I was on vacation by myself at LPGA International and all of the girls were playing practice rounds. After a few days all of the starters knew me pretty well. So one day I stroll up to the first tee and ask Sam the starter "who ya got for me today?"
First he introduces me to some little hottie that was a 3 time all Big Ten player at Wisconsin (sorry cannot remember her name). Next up was this tiny little Japanese girl who didn't speak much English. I started chatting with her caddie and he goes "yeah she is the #1 ranked amateur in the world right now." The last girl to join walks right up to me and says "Hi, my name is Birdie." (Birdie Kim 2005 US Open champion).
That round was a ton of fun. I was giving them all kinds of trash talk and they gave it right back to me. I would hit it 50 yards past them from the back tees and then they would roll in a birdie putt and say "see that's why you are not on the men's tour!" I hit on the girl from Wisconsin pretty hard and she played along for most of the round. Then on the 18th hole she says "you hit it pretty far but my boyfriend could beat you!"

SMDH that this thread had to be cleaned up.
How f...ing hard is it to carry on an actual civilized discussion? Jeez people, get over yourselves!

I won a regional tourney as a Junior and got to play in a Sr. CPGA Pro Am in 1988 as part of the prize.
I played ahead of Moe Norman who was paired with a friend behind me in the next group. I watched him hit balls on the range and as a dumb kid wondered how this guy with a weird swing was so special.
I used to hit it far back in the day and had one Par 5 that was so tight off the tee with a dogleg through the trees that I could barely keep my trusty 4 wood in the fairway. I cut the corner and was around 290yds out from the tee. We started walking after I hit my second shot and a ball rolled between us and past us by 20-30 yds. I looked back and we had no idea where the ball came from as we could not see the tee behind us.
Sure enough, Moe bent a low screamer around the corner with his driver and it followed the bend of the dogleg right down the middle of the fairway over 300yds. Unbelievable unless I saw it myself. I talked to my friend after to see what he shot and he said somewhere between 64 and 68 but hard to tell because he wouldn't wait to putt out sometimes with his impatience. The pro I was with shot 67 and said if Moe finished his rounds (without giving up because he was bored), no one would have a chance.
Looking back, that was way cooler now than at the time.

The story I like to share is back in 2015, Golf Beer Brewing had just come out. You may remember, the beer brewed by Freddie Jacobsen, Graeme McDowell, and Keegan Bradley.
We were playing with KJ Choi and were waiting at the 10th tee box, our 1st hole of the day. As usual, the pro-am was backed up but Freddie was playing in the group in front of us.
So here I am standing next to Freddie and I turn and ask him "So Freddie, did you bring some of your beer to Texas?". He turns and says "Yeah man, you want some?" I of course said yes. He then says "Ok, I'll call my wife and have her bring some out. I'll leave one for you on the 9th hole." So I am excited and looking forward to trying this beer.
After 2.5 hours, we get to the 9th tee box (what is actually hole number 18) and there was no beer. I was crushed and disappointed. During the back 9, I was turning to KJ and his caddie (who is now caddying for Chez Reavie, I know this because I wont forget the huge head and long curly hair. You can't miss him on TV) and telling them to call Freddie to complain. This was all in good fun of course. We were having a good time.
So finally, we get to the 9th hole (again, our 18th hole) and we are hitting the 6 hour mark for the round. The heat has added up and taken it's toll. I am really ready for a beer. I walk up the hill and I see this on the tee box (imagine it unopened).....
