Famous People you ran into during a round of Golf...
Posted 09 April 2018 - 01:28 PM
On the range, mainly at Westlake CG:
Sylvester Stallone - Very nice guy. Seemed very approachable.
Fred Couples- He was hitting a few spots down from me, just lobbing wedges into the side of the hill.
Kelsey Grammer- Embarrassing story. He was there with two kids and I had my son with me. My son was about 6 or so at the time (He's 31 now). My son lightly shanked a shot that stopped in front of Kelsey, who was hitting in the next stall. Before I could stop him, my son ran in front of him to retrieve his ball. I apologized and he was very gracious and said, "That's ok, my kids have done that too."
Danielle Kang- In her pre-LPGA days when she played for Pepperdine. I work at Pepperdine and I see several of our Ladies' team member on the range often at Westlake.
Missed seeing Padrig Harington on the range by a day this past spring

Played with Jim Harrick. Talked hoops most of the time. He had insight and analysis on Lebron that blew me away. He told me to watch his feet. I can't stop watching his feet now.
Played with Teemu Selanne a couple of times.
Played behind Paul Goydos.
Played in front of (and in the same game) as Brendan Steele.
Met Phoenix (bass player from Linkin Park) and Tre Cool (drummer from Green Day) in a pro shop.
Got on the first tee (par 5) and saw a six-some on the green ahead of me. I was like WTF?? I looked at my playing partner and said it was going to be a long day but it was just the two of us so maybe we can play through on the next hole. We couldn't catch these guys and didn't see them until the 13th. It was Mark Wahlburgh and literally his entourage. Only two of the six were actually playing which is why we couldn't catch them. But I got to talk to the orginal "Turtle" which was cool I guess.

My favorite though, for all the Entourage fans out there, was Kevin Dillon or "Johnny Drama." BSed with him for a while after the round. Super nice and cool guy. Solid golfer too.

I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.

I was going to list you, but you listed some guy named Michael Jordan over me. And to use Hawkeys's favorite new line, now I'm all butt-hurt!!��
I was thinking you'd say VNutz!
Good use of BH, too.
Plus DP, if I posted that I had played with you the entire board would know that you have no standards and will play with any riffraff that shows up. There would be a steady stream of undesirables heading towards Chicago.

As we passed the pro shop after the front 9 one of the shop staff called out to us and asked if we minded having a single join us for the back 9........ "no problem" ....So this big guy comes out and joins us....... can't say I actually recognized him right off, but I had an uneasy feeling about him as we played....as we played and chatted I finally remembered who he was .... Robert Satiacum .... at the time he was on the FBI's top 10 most wanted list in the States...he was in Canada claiming refugee status.
A few months later he was arrested and convicted in Canada for child sex charges and subsequently died of a heart attack while in jail awaiting extradition.
Famous or infamous??
