Hi ,, I am OPY , Pushing 50 from the other side . I grew up on a small farm next to a fancy golf course . My dad would walk in the woods by hole #3 after dinner and find lost balls and resell them , I was just a little guy at the time and would go roll balls on the green ,
One day the man who took the flags in every day talked to my dad then gave me a putter that had been cut down and regriped Then showed me how to use it , He called me OPY and his name was Mr Tincher . Almost every day Mr Tincher would show me how to putt and fix ball marks on the green , After some time he gave me a wedge a 7 iron a 3iron and a drive that were all cut down and regriped , Mr Tincher showed me how to use them and would let me play # 3 over and over so long as none of the club members were on the course . He also showed me how a Golfer acts and cares for the course . I just thought Mr Tincher was just man who worked there But He was the Course Pro and GM .
I did have a Wife and child but that was a long time ago and a nother story .
First car was a rusted out Opel , the floor board was gone and I had the use a broom stick shoved under the front of the seat to keep it from falling through .
PS ,, have to run to the Beer store , So I will be back with enough for every one
EDIT : Back from the store ,, I smoke and drink beer ( have not had anything harder in over 30 years , ) and I smoke , I only drink at home or if a friend is driving clean .
I Have a cat that showed up in my yard on a snowy night 5 years ago and we are now best friends .
