The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So today I was playing a round at my local course and I see this older gent walking around the course and looking at the baskets and then looking at the tee signs.. like he was studying them. I watch him for a couple of holes and eventually caught up to him. He tells me that in 1973 (or 78...can't remember which) he had won 1st place at the National Championships but back then they used the bigger discs. (I'm assuming frisbees???). He introduced himself as Rick Brown. I searched the PDGA memberships to see if he was ever a member but came up short. (Much like my putts). This guy is probably in his mid 60's or so, and I'm guessing due to health and possible strokes, has a difficult time communicating clearly. He seemed interested in getting back in the game but not on a competitive level and was having a hard time navigating the course. So, I offered him my phone number and website so he could contact me if or when he wants to go play a casual round and I told him I would help him navigate the course as well.

However after moving on and thinking about the brief and unclear conversation, I wondered.. was I in the presence of a legend? Who is this man?

Sooooo... if any of you might know who this fellow is or was back in his day, I'd be delighted to learn more about him!

Thats funny!
LOL Nice. Of course, he seemed to smell more like cotton candy than corn so maybe he's changed his diet??? LOL

In all seriousness though, I'd really like to find out more about this guy.
Find Tom Monroe on here and ask him...His PDGA number is 33
