Joe Louis - JOE LOUIS The Brown Bomber. One of the best heavyweight boxers ever to enter the ring. He had the largest hands I have ever seen on a man. When he shook mine it disappeared in his. I was absolutely stunned when he walked up behind our foursome on the first tee of the Meadowlark Golf Course in Huntington Beach, California back in 1963. He was playing with one of golf's first black professionals, Charlie Sifford, and two other black men. He was one of two people I have ever personally asked for an autograph and I regret to say that I have somehow lost the golf card that he signed for me that day. The first hole is fairly short at Meadowlark, just 340 yards and we were awed when his drive rolled up at our feet on the green as we prepared to putt. His drives were to follow us that closely all day long.
