Had tickets given to me by a company that did business with my employer and had a tent on the 18th with free food and beer. My one regret? I didn’t go to the tent.

Chi Chi is the best. My first tournament was the 1984 USF&G in New Orleans (what became the Zurich). I was 5. We ended up staying in the same hotel as a bunch of players, including Chi Chi. My mission in life that weekend was to meet players and get autographs. I met Chi Chi in the hotel lobby and he was great. Treated me like royalty, dropped whatever he was doing, put his conversation on hold and got down on my level and talked to me. From then on, in the hotel, on the course, anywhere I saw him he'd greet me with a big smile and practically yell: "Hey, Sean! My buddy!" Fan for life.
I remember most of the players were super friendly, especially considering I was probably a huge pest. Got a ton of autographs, including Chi Chi (of course), Jack, Hal Sutton, Tom Watson. I remember being bummed that Greg Norman wouldn't sign my visor, but for some reason he gave my mom an autograph....

Jack went for a pee after coming off the 9th and for a fleeting moment I wondered if it was an opportunity to chat but I thought better of it, but only because I had a prime spot on the rope only a couple of feet from the 10th tee.
As we followed them I could hear the tremendous roars that were greeting Arnie as he made his way up 18.
By coincidence my next trip to an event was the 2005 Open at St Andrews. I followed Tiger for a while but that was just hard work. I also made sure that I was there as Jack made his last walk up 18. In the words of the late great Nat King Cole, unforgettable.

I was in awe of seeing in person the figures my parents glued their eyes to on the TV.
I have three vivid memories: One was following Tom Weisskopf , another was seeing balls on the greens bite and spin back. I'd never seen that before. I didn't even know it was possible.
And the best, as I stared open jawed at Slammin' Sammy himself, he looked down at me and said, "Hello ,son." (I'm not his son),,,but he definitely was looking and talking to me!

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.
