DOG ASIDE:

Ranking at the top of the class as an all time favorite live sporting event to ever take place in Austin, Texas was the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf Tournament originally held at Onion Creek Country Club. This tournament basically established the PGA Senior Tour as a viable spectator sport worthy of attention by the television sports media. Golfing enthusiasts all over the world were overjoyed with a new professional golf tour for those beloved players whose sand traps were filled just a little more by the sands of the hour glass….while being moved aside by the young gun golfers on the PGA tour…..and the Legends of Golf Tournament created extremely healthy roots….which allowed the Senior Tour to come to life. The 1st five years of the Legends Tournament created lasting memories for sports fans in Austin…..and Bone Daddy was one of those fans….as he loved to follow players like The Mysterious Mr. X, Miller Barber and Don January…..both Texas born and bred Golf Hall of Fame Players.
