Mr. Begley

I caddied for an Irishman last week at Cape Kidnappers and was priveleged to some interesting Irish story telling. We played the front nine in less than 1 1/2 hours, but the course was crowded on this day and we stopped after 9 for coffee and lunch. After lunch we were walking to Mr. Begley's ball in the right rough on #10 when a quick story came to mind. He began to tell me that he walked into a pub and sat down next to an old man at the bar and offered to buy him a drink. The old man politely declined and explained that four beers was his limit before lunch! On this day Mr. Begley confirmed a few notions of Irish golfers for me: they play fast, have fun, and enjoy a good drink before and after the round.
