Bobby Magruder

Bobby Magruder, originally uploaded by Dan Lilly.

I was paired up for my round today with Bobby Magruder. Bobby is in town for the US Golden Gloves Championships. He heads the region surrounding Washington DC. Bobby was one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting on a golf course. We were instant friends and the comments he made on my game showed me that he is the absolute right person to be working with young boxers. What is really amazing is that Bobby, back in the day, fought Sugar Ray Leonard on three occasions. Bobby went the distance with Leonard in all three fights. Bobby lost on two split decisions and one unanimous decision. You know, there just aren't many guys around who can say they went the distance with Sugar Ray Leonard. Bobby and Leonard remain friends to this day and play golf together whenever they can.

Bobby sank this birdie putt.

Good game.
Nice! But I want to see pics of you in your golf shorts Dan :)
I don't wear shorts when I play
