I count myself lucky to consider Scotty to be a good friend. Since when does/did Scotty ever play one hole? Having said that, Scotty may be the best PERSON out of champions. If Scotty likes you, he would literally give you the shirt off of his back. God help you if he didn't like you, lol. For anyone that doesn't know Scotty, this story should sum him up. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT I AM PARAPHRASING HERE, AS I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT WORDS. Warren Kiamco(or his rep if you like) asked Scotty in Olathe at the ring game if he "how about we give you the 8 and play some sets". Scotty says "how about you keep the 8, and we play some sets". Long story short, Scotty gets the cash. That isn't a word for word, but ANYONE that knows Scotty knows this is right in line, lol.
Yeah, this is the story I was going to post. In Olathe,KS, I thought originally Scotty was going to get the seven from Kiamco. But whatever happened, Scotty said screw the spot, let's play even. And like you said he got the cash. This is 'old school' personified. Scotty is one of a kind.
Ralph Braswell introduced me to Scotty at a tournament in Port Arthur, TX, back when Action Jackson was pumping up the calcuttas. Ralph said "Scotty,you're one of the best pool players in the country, I'd like you to meet one of the best horse racing handicappers in the country." Ralph may have been exaggerating some on my part, but I did turn him on to some good plays several times.
Hope to see Scotty again soon.
