Cub, just listened to your podcast. Congratulations on your retirement!
Happy memories from Scottish Open, and how’s your back after the quad bike incident?!
Hi John, this is Peter Jacobsen, not the golfer, but from Ukiah, congratulations on your retirement last year, been watching you throughout.
Cubby coached our first year senior league hockey team in Sun Valley (1974?) and was both a great coach and a good friend. As a novice player he helped bring me along even though I would never do much more on the ice than occupy space and watch Cubby and Hermi try to make their slap shot pucks go further around the rink than the other. We won the league that year and it is still one of my fave memories.
John–hope life has treated you well.
