I'm not into conspiracy theories but the "beard pulling of today" has been a part of the scam that has cost clubs millions for no reason in so many cases. In twenty years much of it will be considered factual and the worst part is how often it has generated credibility to basic inexperience. Lots of young guys doing good stuff right now but rarely do I see them as the beard pullers... To be clear...my bitch is with the BSers not a Barker or Travis. Going to take a break before diving into 1911, but wanted to quickly comment on this post.I hope that Mike Y. can see that everything going on in this thread is an attempt to get the record right, so as to avoid any "beard pulling" becoming factual. I found the comments above as a bit of a slap in the face to those that have participated here with the intentions of avoiding (or at least clearly noting) speculation while working with the facts we do have available. It is hard to tell exactly who you consider to be a BSer.Sven
Mike, You might have liked Barker. Seems like he wanted to move to some of the courses where he was doing work. Rumson and Roebuck are two examples where he was hired not only to be the pro but to oversee the work going on.Sven
...other courses off the top of my head this morning where Travis and Barker overlapped include Youngstown, Arcola, Rumson. Columbia, East Lake, and likely a few others ...
