I threw a round at the Walter Frederick Morrison course at Creekside Park in Holladay, UT. Never met the man though.

I'd suggest reading the book if you have not had a chance.  I'd loan ya my copy, I bought when it came out, but I gave it to some guy named Stancil...... ;D

Since he hadn't read it, he asked my thoughts, and I said, well I read it on the plane ride (was playing a round with him at Santa Cruz) and that I was done, he could have my copy!

I thought that was the coolest thing!! :D
