    and currently work part time at a golf course raking bunkers.  I really admired folks like Hogan (and Snead and Nelson and others) who worked their up from caddying (I caddied too) and teetered on the thin edge of broke for years before winning decent money.

    If only I hadn't read the book about Hogan that proudly discussed how tough he was to break the union among the workers at his club manufacturing business in Texas.

    He may have been a great golfer, but he was flawed and human, and I'll have to choose my heros from other professions.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
