Unfortunately never got to play with him...oh, and Tony Kornheiser is also a member, but I've never seen him
One year (Jan early 2000s) was flying out of HNL on Sunday night. Had been working and forgot about the Sony...then saw Andy North 2 rows behind me in 1st class...several "regular" pros walked past to go back to economy. I was flying UA a lot those days so felt bigtime to be up in 1st...lol

Vince Gill and Amy Grant.
Mike Ditka at a course in Naples.
Played in a celebrity pro-am with country singer Steve Azar and one of the guys from Run DMC (he’d never been on a golf course before).
I told Barney Miller he couldn’t play through our group....I didn’t recognize him.
Spanky from the Little Rascals and Don Drysdale in my group once.
T. Boone Pickens joined our table for drinks once after a round.
Used to play golf with a few songwriters in Nashville and Faith Hill showed up to try and get a song out of one of them during lunch. It was before she was a superstar.
Jerry Reid owned a condo on a course I played in college and he’d follow us around drunk and heckle/bs with us.
Played at Crystal Downs and was hitting balls and casually chatting with a nice old guy....found out he was the recently retired Chairman of the Board of Shell Oil.

Played Pebble with former PGA player Jim McGovern that same weekend. Dude was a riot. He played absolutely awful, I played unreal for me, and I ended up beating him. He didn't break 80...woof
Last summer I saw Brady Quinn and AJ Hawk at a club in Columbus. They were having a little family round. Both super nice guys. Brady was telling me how hungover he was and how long of a night he had... yet he looked like the spent the morning at the salon getting all dolled up. Dude apparently looks beautiful even when unshowered and hungover. AJ was giving him s*** for that.
I caddied for Allen Houston at Muirfield Village. Seemed nice but I kind of stayed out of his way.
There have been others, I just can't really remember. In Scottsdale from time to time I will see guys on the course who are athletes in town for a game playing but I never interact with them. Like I saw Vince Carter on the 9th green at TPC Scottsdale Champions last year with other players but I didn't try to interact with him or anything. Its not uncommon to see athletes at courses here this time of year (Spring training, NBA in season, off season training centers for NFL draft players, etc).

I was playing the Lower Cascades Course with some family members and hit a nice drive on 18. Hit my 9 iron approach shot to about 10-12 feet. From behind me I hear "nice shot". Turn around and about 25 yards away it's none other than Sam Snead himself in his cart, big old Wilson staff bag on the back with his dog tagging along behind. I babbled some kind of "thank you" and off he drove.
Fortunate I didn't know he was there before I hit, or who knows where the shot would have gone!
Surreal moment and one I'll never forget.
