It’s the ultimate water cooler question: if you had the chance to play with anyone who’s ever lived, who would make up you dream foursome?
Do you go with family? Celebrities? PGA TOUR golfers? Legends of the game? Movie stars? Your crush? The choices are endless!
So allow me to kick off the conversation by sharing mine.
First on the tee: Myself! No way I’m sitting out this round, game on.
Next up, from Madison, WI: Chris Farley. My first, and easiest choice, is hands down one of the funniest actors to ever live. Chris Farley was a comic genius. Who can forget his iconic Saturday Night Live roles: a Chippendales dancer, Matt Foley motivational speaker, his celebrity talk show, Bennett Brauer … the list goes on and on. And his movies? Don’t even get me started on Tommy Boy, Black Sheep and most importantly Beverly Hills Ninja.
Our third member from Green Bay, WI: Aaron Rodgers. Yes, I’m a Packers fan. Yes, I want to play golf with Aaron Rodgers. Charming, funny and can throw a spiral through a thimble, Aaron Rodgers is in my group. The Superbowl XLV MVP, two-time NFL MVP, four-time pro bowler, two-time offensive player of the year, and all around superman is one of the game’s best quarterbacks posting crazy, historic numbers. Food for thought: Rodgers threw an interception in Lambeau Field last week for the first time in three years. The guy is good.
Rounding out the foursome from Latrobe, PA: Arnold Palmer. The King. Putting the golf records aside, Arnold Palmer is the greatest golfer ever. Yes, he won a lot of events, is a major champion and was responsible for bringing golf into the American living room. But the thing that separates Mr. Palmer from any other golfer is the way he treats people. He makes you feel like you’re the only one in the room. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to meet him, you know what I’m talking about. It would be an honor to play with the best there ever was, is and will be.
