How Much Money Have You Won
Posted 08 November 2018 - 06:43 AM
We was comin' back from a golf junket in Hilton Head, just delivered the some bad news to foursome on their home course. Got to Sea Pines early - eleven hundred men went out to play that day. Many had scarfed down their free box lunch and were gone in less than nine holes. Couldn’t handle the pressure. Didn't see the first sandbagger for about a half an hour. White Belt. 6-footer. You know how you know that when you're in the fairway, Chief? You tell by lookin' from the white belt to the heel. What we didn't know... was our side trip to Sea Pines after the junket had been so secret, no phone calls to the wives been made,
[Ferg pauses and takes a drink]
They didn't even list us overdue for an hour. Very first hole, Chief, sandbaggers come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. Y'know, it's... kinda like pork hocks in a jar, and the idea was, sandbagger comes to the nearest man and that man, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin', and sometimes the sandbagger go away... sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that sandbagger, he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. Y'know the thing about a sandbagger, he's got... bloodshot eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'... until he beats ya. And those black eyes roll over bloodshot, and then... oh, then you hear that terrible high-pitch screamin', and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip your wallet to pieces.
Y'know, by the end of the first two holes... lost a hundred men. I dunno how many sandbaggers. Maybe a thousand. They averaged six a minute. On hole # 3, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Fritz Roberts from Cleveland- baseball player and former semipro coxswain. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up... he fell out of the cart. Upended. Well... he'd been taken for his life savings, and they even took his pants below the waist. On the fifth hole, Mr. Hooper, a ranger saw us, he came in fast and he saw us. Young guy, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he saw us and come in fast and three hours later, a big fat multi-passenger golf cart comes down the fairway and starts to pick us up. Y'know, that was the time I was most frightened, waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a golf glove again. So, eleven hundred men went into Sea Pines, four men come out, and the sandbaggers took the rest, June the 29th, 1999.

Took someone's college fund once... and gave it back, hopefully to teach a lesson. Not sure if it did.
Nicer man than I.
