Wow is Mark O’Meara a cool cat. I loved it back in 1998 when he won The Masters AND the British Open Championship. He’s also known for being one of Tiger Woods’ best friends. I met him today, along with a few other famous golfers at the Champions Challenge.
Mark was kind enough to sign my Masters flag and an Augusta National score card I had from my “Masters shrine.” Mark was very nice to talk to and was very cool to my two young kids I had with me. He gave each of them an autographed golf glove.
Mark was playing with the 2nd richest guy in Utah, a billionaire. I guess if I want to play with famous players I need to make a few more bucks off this blog. The billionaire guy bought my kids snickers bars… Hey man, how ’bout a little something for me too?
Below is a video of Mark’s driver swing. He hit his Titleist driver deep down this fairway and shaped the shot perfectly with the curve of the dogleg. I’ve always liked his swing, especially his move down low, right after contact.
When a gallery member said “nice shot” Mark replied, “It’s an easy shot on Monday.”
