From Bill Bagley

Do you recall the Press-Legislative Golf Tournament, sponsored by lobby groups in those pre-Prop 9 non-gridlock days? Free golf, drinks and dinner in those collegial times. Pulitlzer Prize winner Jack McDowell manned the roving cart supplied with ice and "refreshments," One 1967 foursome of equally pitiable players was Jerry Gillam, Willie Brown (his first game) Bill Bagley and Jack Knox. Our average for 18 holes was over 200. Willie demeaned the game as "white man's play," We made him ride on the back of the cart. Jerry really enjoyed the experience.
