"I happen to think Sidney Lowe is one of the good guys,’’ Williams said. "I enjoyed Sidney. I’m just mad at myself, because we had talked about having a competition – four guys on his staff, four on mine, me and three other guys – meet at Chapel Hill Country Club and play. [We were] going to bribe Wanda [Williams’ wife] into fixing us some hot muffins or something, and handing them out at the seventh fairway. And I didn’t get a chance to do that, and I’m mad at myself about that.
What, is Sid enduring some sort of self-imposed house arrest? I'm pretty sure y'all could still get together and play some golf if you wanted to, Roy.
This gave me a great idea, though. I'm imagining an alternate reality where golf is the king of Tobacco Road. Imagine getting the Big Four's golf teams together for some Dixie Classic golf action, with fans from all four schools at the event, and everyone is allowed to be as loud and distracting as they would be at a basketball game. Each team is allowed one alumnus from the PGA ranks to compete. And by rule, every competitor must down a six pack by the turn. You think it's loud when somebody hits a tourney-winning putt on the last hole of a major...this would be epic. I would pay a lot of money to see this event.
