Unless theres something wrong with his page, this fella has made just a hair over 1000$ career golfing, but has been pro since 1996.

dudes up there in years, but still trying and got himself a chance; thats the kind of story I like to see in sports.

If he goes to an all-chicken-wing diet and becomes a raging alcoholic he could become the next John Daly.

My mind was going somewhere else after reading the first half of that headline.

CSB Time.

Back in the days of dial up internet and brick and mortar stores first starting to have websites, I was helping a coworker find snowshoes for his wife.

"OK, try Eastern Mountain Sports - ems.com"

"It loaded, now click there. And there. And there."

And so on. Repeat for 2 or 3 other sporting goods stores.

Other coworkers started returning from lunch and stopped by to chat and see what we were up to.

Then my coworker took the initiative and typed in dicks.com

Back then, that website hosted a very different, very specific type of "sport". Mostly without uniforms or equipment of any kind. Or any women.

Staring at the screen as it sloooooooowwwwwly rendered over a dial up connection ... yeah, still hilarious.
