I share many memories with MT at Country Oaks. I will never forget the time we were playing old #_6 at Country Oaks. I had hit a nice little 3W but it had rolled in the woods on the left and I was jest to the left of one on those oaks on the left. I had a shot but not much of one. MT had nailed a driver and was sitting in the middle of the fairway about 30 yards from the green. I took a 7 Iron and hit it as good as I could. And it went in the hole. MT do ok a wedge and put it on the number 7 tee. He ended up with a snowman and I ended up with an eagle. We faced off hundreds of times in the years we played together and I am sure he bested me on total holes but I won a lot of the ones... that counted. He will be missed, lime green pants, orange shoes and all.Read more
