In later years when someone would ask how long he'd been at the game. he would say, "I've been playing all my life. but I never got any good at it." But anyone who ever played with him knew that wasn't true. Over the years Dick played on many courses. When-he was sta- tioned at Fort Ord, he played Pebble Beach frequently. Both he and his father were members of the Brook- side Men's Club in Pasadena and he was a member of the Catalina Men's Club for many years. Besides playing in Lake Tahoe, the desert, and various southern. California courses,  he also played in Arizona. Minnesota, and as far away as the Karen Country Club in Kenya. If Dick wasn't playingin an offi- cial game, he had no problem play- ing "winter rules" all year long. And if no one were behind him, he would often drop a second ball knowing that a better shot was in him. Keeping score was not always that important to him because af- ter all, you were really only playing against yourself. He didn't take time off work to practice so he made the most of the time he did have when he was on the course. Dick's style was calm and easy going He would happily and pa- tiently give instructions to his tod- dler grandchildren, granddaugh- ters, wife. friends, or new players just getting started When his dad could no longer walk, Dick would still take him to Brookside and literally support him so he could play the game. His enthusiasm never faded even when he no longer could play. A perfect morning for him overtown was to have breakfast at Brookside, look out over the course and watch the players tee off. On the Island, he enjoyed do- ing the same thing. He Usually had a golf ball in his pocket and even started wearing his golf shoes ev- eryday. Whether that made him feel connected to the game or gave him better footing and balance. only Dick knew. Dick had an innate ability to sense the proximity of a golf course. While driving along some- where he had never been before, he would say, "There's a golf course nearby." And within minutes it would come into view. The sight of a lush green course was pure heaven for him. Just knowing there were beautiful courses everywhere gave him pleasure. By now Dick has found his dad and they've set up some foursomes on God's heavenly links. He will surely be watching us have fun at his Memorial Scramble and prob- ably wishing he could give some seasoned advice. Winter rules will prevail, as will extra Mulligans, a few Coors will be consumed, and he will be in our thoughts with ev- ery swing. This event will please him immensely.
