Is a friend of Ray Benson of the country-swing band Asleep at the Wheel. Told statesman.com that golf is a tough sport to call, as it "will expose you if you don't know what you're talking about." One of his most memorable calls came while covering that sport, on the occasion of a remarkable Jack Nicklaus Masters' birdie: "Maybe...yes sir!"
