This may be hard to believe, but actor Samuel L. Jackson once beat Tiger Woods in a round at the Home of Golf -- The Old Course at St. Andrews.
Jackson, a certified golf nut who has been rumored to demand time to play golf while filming movies, joined the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday and talked about how it all went down in Scotland years ago.
Jackson explained that he and Woods were playing in the Dunhill Cup and Woods said to him
"I beat him once when I was a 16," Jackson said. "He had to give me all my 16 shots. It was the first time I played St. Andrews. I played with Tiger there when the Dunhill Cup was actually an international competition. The first day I played with him, the second day I played with Daly. The day I played with Tiger he said, 'Follow me.' I was a 16, I shot 78 and he shot even par. I win."
Here's the video:
Isn't that the great thing about golf? The handicap equalizes everything so you can play with and have a competitive match with anyone... even arguably the greatest player to ever play the game.
That said, I think I'm going to go ahead and call "shenanigans" on Jackson's alleged 16 handicap. Come on. A 16 handicap shooting a 78 at St. Andrews while playing with Tiger Woods?
Of course, having seen Pulp Fiction countless times, I would never call Jackson a "sandbagger" to his face.
