Default Played golf with a sort of celebrity today

I am in Orlando for a couple of days of R&R. So today I am playing golf at Grand Cypress and they paired me up with a couple of guys who are locals...Billy and Randy. We hit it off pretty well and were enjoying ourselves.
After about 12 holes, Randy says to me..."Billy wont tell you this but he is one of the greatest living poets in the United States. He is a two time Poet Laureate of the United States. When I got back to the hotel, I Googled him and sure enough that was him that I played with.

Nice guy, very down to earth. I really enjoyed playing with both of them.

I didn't bother mentioning that most of the "poems" I know start out as "The once was a man from Nantucket..."
