    Hello Paul,

    MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL WGT MEMBERS:

    The Famous Paul (pdb1) and me (Henry Kawa) also known as the best WGT Player of all time met in person in Phoenix AZ.  We went for a  nice breakfast and talked about many WGT events from the past, present and future.   Never a dull moment in the entire 2 hour meeting.  Thank you Paul.  Turns out you are an outstanding, honest and caring person.  It was my honor to meet you in person after knowing you for the last 10 or so years in the Forums and speaking many times on WGT.   Can't wait until we meet again next year. 

    Henry Kawa (by the way - I am not the best player of all time.  lol).

    Very unusual to play 4 - 3 hole rounds in a sponsor session . But thanks to a couple quick quitters today . I played 4 .

    The sad part was this poor guy here . The final putt on the 3rd hole . I had already missed . I typed

    gg thx w p .

    He was up 10 - 11 . He had a 3footer .

    He froze up on the first timeout . I think . Because he didn't DQ on the second time out .

    It restarted . He was gone . Gave him a forfeit . If he would have been able to putt he had the round won . But in this case I think he couldn't stay connected . He had a small lag on each hole . But there is no way to tell if the connection failed on his end or on the game itself .

    People ask . How do I handle it ?

    I don't handle it . It is an unhandleable reality .

    And unfortunately it is real .

    It is no problem for me to take it with a grain of salt . To shine it on . To not be bullied/baited  into negative actions or replies .

    I am too numb to it .

    Probably why I don't walk away .

    Wow it is something though . Admittedly even humorous in a sick/sad way .

    My take .

     

    The latest.

    update on the latest .

    I've met a few guys in person. This game used to be a lot of fun. It's really changed. The game is so inconsistent I'm not having fun anymore.

    Hi Philip .

    It also can be just as cool . Running into an old CC mate in an MP round . Can be a joyous reunion as well .

    As happened here .

    <^^><^^><^^><^^><^^>

    I keep mentioning how rare it is to play the same player twice .

      It is even more rare to run into old mates .

      This I can say from many thousands of Multiplayer rounds over the last 10 years .

      You will see some nasty and offensive ones . Many ask why I don't turn them in ? It's just not who I am . Doesn't bother me or effect my game .

    MEMORABLE CHATS



      Well last evening I had the rare and exciting chance to play an ex VOTSCC mate . I tried to screen shot the chat between us . I got most of it .

    11/25/21

     

    The " ugh's " are my comments on my last shot . Lol .

     

     

     

     

    Those moments are rare . But so cool . And am always hoping for more to come .

    Also .

    Agreed.  Exposing someone else's personal information for everyone in the Forums to see is a huge no-no.

    Still, it's heartwarming that you (Paul) were able to catch up with an old clubmate ­čÖé
