Just wanted to stop in and say hi. My name is Tom Kite and I live in Lees Summit Missouri just outside of Kansas City. I grew up fishing the rivers and lakes South of St Louis. My favorite being Big River at Leadwood Missouri. Used to ride my bike there with a can of corn and catch perch all day long. As i got older I discovered the fine smallmouth bass fishing on the river and caught my fair share.

At age 21 something horrible happened . I discovered golf and have spent the last 14 years of my life chasing the little white ball all over the United States. But for some reason this spring at Branson we decided to rent a boat and go out on Table Rock . I caught 2 small smallies and got hooked again.

I just purchased my first boat a 1985 Fiberglass Tracker 1710 with 90 hp motor and IU pick it up tomorrow. So I'll be hittiing the lakes around here starting aboout 6am this Saturday.

One last thing I cannot believe how much rods ,reels and lures have gone up since I quit fishing in 93. That was quite a shock to walk in and look at those prices.

Welcome to the nut farm. And welcome back to fishing, the fun sport.

I would rather be fishin'.

Uhhhh, a different Tom Kite I think??

The details here don't support all the gushing that Terry is pouring on.

Check this link

The REAL Tom Kite 'discovered' golf more than decade earlier in life, and won his first tournament at age 11.

He was also the first in Tour history to reach $6 million, $7 million, $8 million, and $9 million in career earnings. He was the Tour’s leading money-winner in 1981 and 1989. So I think that he'd be less sticker-shocked by gear and would have a MUCH nicer boat!

Sincerely,

Tiger Woods

HHC... maybe you should read ALL of my post...

But, Tom Kite WAS one of my favorite golfers when I cared about golf... :lol:

Now it's more like what Paul O'Neil said: "I am not against golf, since I cannot but suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering trout..."

BAH!! Who wants to play cow pasture pool when there are fish in the water??? Well, unless you are making a lot of money playing golf that is. :P :P

No I'm not that Tom Kite but It does help . Ive got a few tee times through the years that i shouldn't have because of my name.

Was a very good day for me. Guy delivered my boat and 2 new garcia 4600 reels and 2 all star rods were waiting on my front porch.
