To help clarify it is Don McCaughey for the spelling . Don was one of the best in Des Moines many years ago. Paul Baker aka Highway Paul is still around. I occasionally see him out at Prairie Meadows and he comes up to Big Dogs I believe on occasion. He used to play cards with my grandpa many years ago. We got to talking about and he told me a couple of stories. Both Don and Paul are great ambassadors of the game.
Hey Matt, thanks for setting me straight on a couple things, I'm real happy to be that close on the spelling of Don's last name considering that it seemed to be spelled differently every time I saw him and it was indeed "Highway Paul"
You are right both Don and Paul are great ambassadors of the game and I'm happy to hear that Paul still gets around. If I remember right not only was Paul adept at cards and pool but was also a pretty fair golfer. Was told one time he took delight in hustling club pros. While you say "Don was one of the best in Des Moines" I believe you could substitute country for Des Moines.
