The worst golfer I ever met grew up at Scott Air Force base outside of St Louis. No one cares.


I’m starting to think you meant “pleasing” instead of “offensive” in your OP.


Relax. He’s a two time Major champion dear friend of mine.


That’s funny.


I was rather hoping you’d engage on the question. I think it’s an important one. The Ouimet story is pretty funny if you really think about it from a perspective of class and exclusion.

I was concerned my post displayed a lack of respect for the military.

I didn’t read it that way, but I’m not sensitive to it.
