Looks like fun!
Your missing out on some cool charts...
Patrick Henderson a.k.a. hendersp5
Based on the picture from our Golfer of the Week Patrick Henderson- it looks like he knows how to have fun. I'm also a bit worried about the future of my children.
How old are you and what's your occupation?
22 - laboratory research assistant
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started when I was 14, played until 16 and then quit to play baseball for 6 years in high school/college and just picked it back up again in March - 8.3 I believe is my current handicap according to oobgolf!
How often do you play?
probably 2-4 times a week - I'm usually done with work by 3:30 and can catch a twilight whenever anyone will play
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
I've holed out from 50 yards for eagle at Pleasant Valley in Iowa City - solid little sand wedge - we'll call it skill
What is your best golf memory?
One of my buddies got a hole in one when he was like 13 and they put it in the local paper with your name, age, what hole and what course - but they also put in what club - and his was a driver - the ball never got above 4 feet in the air and rolled into the hole. I tell him that hole in one deserves an asterisk because he used a driver on a par 3 and the ball was a worm burner.
What is your "home" course?
Finkbine Golf Course, Iowa City, Iowa
What ball do you play?
Right now I'm on the Callaway CX Tour 56
Purchasing the G5's in a month and I roll with a callaway 454 big bertha, a 980 titleist 3 wood, odyssey rossie 2 from like 7 years ago - oh and a 56* cleveland cg10
Jesper is pretty cool.
Favorite course you've played?
Haven't played too many outside of Iowa but I'll say Boone Golf and Country Club.
Dream course you've yet to play?
I'd like to play a professional course - maybe those joints in Hawaii?!?
Best round ever- and what course?
81 at Finkbine
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Tell me a story.
So I jump ship in hong kong, and I make my way over to tibet and I get on as a looper at a course over there in the himalayas - "a looper" my buddy asks? and I said, looper, you know, caddy - a looper, a jock. So I tell them I'm a pro-jock and who do you think they give me?? the DALAI LAMA himself - 12th son of the lama - the flowing robes, the grace.....bald...... striking. So I'm on the first tee with him, I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the lama - long - into a 10,000 foot crevasse right at the base of this glacier. You know what the lama says? Gunga-glunga, guna-glunaglunga- so we finish 18 and he's gonna stiff me, and I said "hey lama! hey! How 'bout a little something, you know, for the effort? you know? and he says "oh ahh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your death bed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that going for me........which is nice.
Heh- I think our Golfer of the Week is insane... I like it!

Is "total consciousness" on your death bead a good thing? If its a painfull death, say bleeding out from having your body cut off at the torso, then sign me up for the unconscious death bed...
this guy is keeping it pretty Fn real! and good work on the caddy shack man, that is impressive that you got it verbatim.
