My Wife's Grandfather Phil Richey told stories of what a great cook she was when the Richey Boys would go to their house on Sunday and then go to the Cave above the Onus Raley Place. Phil's brother Sam latter married her daugher Mayme. Phil showed us the dog-trot house they lived in at that time and I think a part of the house is still standing.
Ky Laffoon was a golfer of note after the Great Depression and through the World War II years in US tour history. He was noted for both his temper and much-admired swing, and there are many legends (a few of them even true) about his on- and off-course antics. Ky was known as an excellent teacher. Hogan and Ott were among those that he helped. But he never mentioned Byron Nelson, for whom he had a strong dislike because of an incident involving Ky’s brother and caddie, Billy. Laffoon also was a mentor of Marshall Smith of Miami , who has taken Ky’s fundamentals and refined them while working with such modern pros as Chi Chi Rodriguez, Walt Zembriski, Gary Player and Craig Stadler.
