I must say that I felt sorry for Rickie Fowler at the recent 3M Open. As he was making 8 on #18, I thought of a story I wrote in 2015 when Rickie won the 2015 Player's Championship. He won the tournament but girlfriend Alexia stole the show.
As the MGA golf season is drawing to a close, we all need to remember the volunteers who make the events go smoothly. Mike Damman is one of the very best. The story is several years old but Mike still works many MGA events.
This is the last Money Ball story for a while. When I got my introduction to Bridge I lost $2.60 in 9 holes. That was a small fortune for a kid making $1.25 per hour.
More gambling games for the golf course. Thought about some of these while watching the Open Championship.
More money games.
More ways to win or lose on the golf course.

With Lumpy now competing on the Champions Tour, I brought back a story I wrote about my friend Carson in 2008. All great golfers. All great people!
They are beautiful. They are harmless. They eat misquotes. I love dragonflies.
