Back in 2006 when I was stationed in Monterey while in the Air Force, I used to play a lot of golf at Bayonet Black Horse ($50 a month for military). One afternoon I was playing by myself and was paired up with two older gentlemen, one who looked oddly familiar. About three holes in my curiosity got the better of me and I asked his playing partner, “why does your buddy look so familiar”? He replied with a chuckle, “Are you a baseball fan?” And it clicked! It was Mr October himself, Reggie Jackson. I was ashamed that I didn’t recognize him immediately, but did my best to play it cool, but back to back doubles made me come clean. I had a great time and my game turned around eventually once the nerves wore off.
TLDR: I was paired with Reggie Jackson and didn’t know it until hole number 4!
