the women's champion, the men's senior champion,
the junior champion, the women's senior champion,
and I am at the far right as the men's champion.

Today, at 6 feet tall and weighing in at about 220, I am known here and there for my long drives, occasionally outdriving top young players, even though I will be 65 in December, 2011. I have always been interested in sports and was pretty good at all of them, but I had skipped the 1st grade in school, so I was always a year younger and smaller than most of my classmates. I grew a lot in my senior year, but that was too late for any varsity sports except golf, and that has remained my sport ever since. The 1964 Lincoln High School golf team of which I was a member was the Class A State Golf Champion.

Golf - Nebraska State High School Golf Champions 1964

A Hole in One is a Special Feeling.
Plus, it was my grandfather's birthday.

Golf Champions 1964

This is the ball I used for my 1st Ace.
I was 16 then and played this ball for maybe 10 rounds - you could still cut the ball then. The witnesses in my foursome were Lowell Berg (now retired former head of probably the leading architectural firm in Lincoln, Nebraska, and past President of the Rotary Club), Roger Yant and Mike Ley (who in 1972 was Nebraska Match Play Champion). You could send the ball in to Titleist (Acushnet) and have them stamp your name and date on it, which I did.
