I worked at private club in San Antonio in the early 90's, while in college.  The Spurs had a corporate membership.  George Gervin, the Ice Man, played almost every day.  He was always looking for a game, so I played with him several times.  He was always super nice, and just an enjoyable guy to play golf with.  He was a decent stick, probably a 5 capper, so we would always play skins, one dollar per hole, just to make it a game.  

I ran into George Strait there one day also, but didn't play with him.  Just gave him a ride from his Ford Explorer, to the pro shop.  He was super nice too.  Signed autographs for anyone who asked.

Ran into President Clinton playing the 18th at Harding Park San Francisco. My buddy and I were making the turn and we saw some guys in suits watching a group and we looked and sure enough it was him. Pretty cool.

Ran into Craig Morton, the old Broncos quarterback in Mesquite. Was cool for me as I am from Colorado. I actually named my First pet Morton (a hamster) because of him
I hope you didn't tell him you named a hamster after him.  Please tell me you didn't.

Several.  Jason Biggs (American Pie) about 10 years playing at La Quinta Resort Mountain Course.  We had found a wedge on a hole and some guy drives up in a cart while we were at the par 3 against the mountain and the guy gets out and asks did anyone find a wedge and we say yes, thinking hey isn't that the guy from American Pie?

Van Earl Wright at Mountain Gate in LA about 20 years ago when he was a CNN sports nightly anchor.

All three at Bel Air in 2015: Lute Olson, former U of A basketball coach was playing number 1 when we were going to the range. John Williams famous movie composer in the clubhouse. Was at the range by myself and a guy comes up and says hi and hits some irons as you can't hit woods off their range and he left and I said he looks familiar and it was Jack Wagner.  Of note it was June 21 and a group were playing the summer solstice tournament where they play Riviera in the morning, then Bel Air afternoon followed by LACC to wrap up the day!  Wow what a day.

I saw Tiger playing on the Navy GC in Cypress, CA. It was before he turned pro. In fact I think he was still in high school.

Translation:  you barely play golf and you've never seen anyone who shoots under 100...and the 16 "likes" are from your mom.

Huh? Not sure what you’re trying to say, but it’s all true.
