I called a representative for Dye to set this up, and that person made it seem like I was trying to get through to the President. But after I left a message he called back, said come on over, and that was it. He and his wife Alice couldn’t have been nicer. Right out of Mayberry.
Pete’s had an amazing career as a golf course architect, but he’s been more than that. He was a wildly successful insurance salesman and a standout golfer, too. It’s not easy to get into his profession without being a renown pro, but he did it and is regarded as one of the best.
I located the raw copy of the conversation, before the music and commercial breaks and all were added, and have posted it here in two pieces.
