"I play as a single most of the time. The biggest percentage of folk I've been paired with have been enjoyable. Of course there's always an exception.
This year i was pair with a 93 year old survivor of Pearl Harbor. EXTREMELY Nice guy that was with his 86 year old girl friend. We only played 9 holes together as he was getting tired.
I shook his hand and thanked him for his service, He in turn thanked me for being so nice and helpful (I retrieved his ball from the hole as he was having difficulty bending over)
His girlfriend gave me a hug for being a "gentleman" as she put it.
I left that day being honored to get the chance to meet and play with him."
And knowing You my friend ... Your Heart was pounding with a sense of pride and knowledge of a great encounter.
What a great story to share ... Thank You
