Jerry is a great story teller, but a better person. I won The golf Channel Fantasy Challenge in 2010 which got me and my wife an all expensive paid trip to the 2011 Sony Open in Oahu. Jerry was our Golf Channel ambassador and he went out of his way to show us a great time on and off the course. He made us feel right at home among the Golf Channel staff, Behind the scenes activity of producing the telecast and taking us to dinner at Duke’s on Waikiki beach w/ James Edmondson, Ryan Palmer’s caddy. The stories and the beer were flowing that night. We’ve kept in touch over the years and because of him, we have lasting memories of out time in Hawaii.
Awe Foltzy ! I got great stories of Jerry from the two weeks I caddied for him in 1996 on the Nike (Korn Ferry) Tour when my regular bag took a couple weeks off. Oh the squandered opportunities with a good chance to win two weeks in a row but especially after having the 36 hole lead at Verdae Greens GC in Greenville,SC. Classic Foltz in effect ! 😂
