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,
Heh.

[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.

[Ferg pauses]

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.

In friendly matches where a bunch of guys toss in $60 .. 20 skins, 20 stableford, 20 blind 2 man draw, approx. $450

In a weekend two day cash scramble, my share of the 4 man team win and a lone skin day 2 was about $2,600 (my 3 partners caps combined for +11)

When the twin and I won our member guest in 2011, between prizes and cash (calcutta and parimutuals) it had to be close to $5 or $6k each.  I do hear of some big course here in greater Toronto that see MG calcutta pools over 100 grand

$2000 in prizes and gift certificates I guesstimate

Money in friendly games, it evens out and is pocket change. Maybe won/lost $50 at most

Best haul for me was $780 bucks. This was for a mens tournament that was held in Edgewood Tahoe. Took home first place for the entire tournament $400, took the low net for the 1st day and a Kp which was another 200 bucks and split the blind draw the second day in like 3 place plus another Kp the second day. Felt good that day. Of course I donated some of it back to Harrah"s casino before I left.

5 figures more than once. Not always in cash.

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