    Brooks Koepka said his favorite players growing up were Tiger and Adam Scott.

    I think of Tiger and especially Scott as YOUNG...

    I grew up as a Gary Player fan! BTW, a little while ago, my wife just told me I look like an old man. Yikes! :p

    My first set of golf clubs were some old used Ben Hogans from the 60s or 70s, I abused them in the 80s. Did not know who he was. I think I was like 12.

    In the 90's I golfed with a friend and a friend of a friend. This guy actually had wooden woods with metal plates tacked on the front. The smallest head surface I have ever seen.

    No he wasn't good. But neither am I. My best round ever was a 92. I'm very happy with bogey golf. He regularly hit snowmen.

    Fun day though....

    It reminds me of these young girls on singing shows saying they grew up listening to Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Egads!

    ....and Tom Watson, and Seve Ballesteros....... @hang_on_sloopy08 Seve........that's where I remember the fluidity of your swing. So effortless, yet so much power.

    Seve made Tiger look accurate with the driver.

    But nobody was better at somehow making a birdie out of a disaster.

    My first set of clubs was a Denny Shute set....who the hell was Denny Shute, I said to myself? Dude was born in 1904. I swear to you they looked like those old iron club heads you see in antique collections.

    A group I used to play with had all these side bets. Birdies, sandies, greenies, bullets(making a put longer than the flag stick) and we had seveies. Making a par without ever being in your fairway.

    Old? My favorite football player while growing up was Kenny Stabler. He's dead.
