Shoot Pool, not people
There was a very strong player/hustler out of Muskogee, OK that they called "Little Hand." I believe his real name was Lewis Bramlett. He had one arm that was very short and withered at the end, with maybe a small thumb and two fingers. It was like he had no elbow, just a forearm growing out of his shoulder. I can't remember now if he held the cue with that small arm (I think so) or used it as his bridge hand. Either way, he was severely handicapped for playing pool, and yet he was an excellent player. I watched him dismantle one of Oklahoma City's top bar table players, Herman the German, one night in OKC for $25 a game, when that was serious money. I sat there in amazement watching this man run out rack after rack.Nope, I chopped off the tip of my left index finger and can't make a normal bridge anymore so I don't even play the game. Never figured out the open bridge so I just gave up the game for golf. Played golf every day for quite some time and then my shoulder went to hell. So I had to give up golf too. In golf I was an 11 Handicap at the 500 Club a very nice course here in Phoenix. Could normally shoot around 80-82 and my best score ever at the 500 Club was 76. So I was pretty much a C player at golf as well.
