Great Players as Remembered by Glen Peltier.

Glen Peltier Takes Us Back to “Some of the Great Players”!! 

I have promised Stan I would write several articles, recounting my memories about male players from the past, and the present, players that I have played with or against.
People ask me all the time who I think was the best??  I cannot answer that question as all great players have their time at the top.
First I want to mention some players that I believe were great. I have to start with Jay Snoddy. He was tall, had a long follow-through and was considered the best of his time. Then came along Bob Litts, Lyle Wood and Bill Folberth. Lyle Wood was from Kentucky and taught the great Charley Bone and Bob Jones. Lyle played with Clarence Taylor and at 85 years of age could still play a great game. I often mention Bob Litz because I practised with Lee Jordon, Bob Litz, Lew Tanskey at St. Pete Sundays for years.

Bob Litz was the best!! He played in 11 consecutive Masters and won six!! Lew Tansky was a great help to me as he always told me what I was doing wrong. Henry Andringa fit into that same era. His partner was Bill Folberth. They owned a trailer park together giving them a chance to play often. Art Davis, Jasen Baade, Marie Krupp. were also classified as great players.
Not many people will remember these players; but you will know, AND REMEMBER, the players in my next article!! Now I may get somethings wrong and I don’t want to offend anyone so tell me if I leave someone out.
These opinions are my own so I will take the blame for any mistakes I make.
Glen Peltier.  Watch for Glen’s Next Article!!! If I read him correctly, he is inviting your input!!  THE SHUFFLER.

    Thank you Glen for sharing.
    I have always respected the players from the past but sadly I didn’t know many.

    I think there is less than a handful of players than can connect with the past like Glen can; that’s why it’s important that we hear from him now!
