Dirty Larry was a starter at Lonnie Poole Golf Course in Raleigh, NC, where he spent many long days hustling unsuspecting colleagues and N.C. State PGA Golf Management students out of their lunch money. He didn’t hit it a long way, nor did he always hit it straight, but he made everything with the flat stick. He was a match for anyone.
Effortlessly cool, calm, and collected, he’d take his opponents’ bills with a grin and then pop down to the local watering hole and buy everyone a drink.
Someone hung a sign in the pro shop with his picture attached that said, "Don't play with this guy, he's Dirty. He'll take your money!"
