Can someone help me find out if I have been subject to a convincing wind up or not. I need to know if anyone has heard of Joey Jones as a caddy, I was in Tenerife at the same time as the Abama Canaries Open and spent a long time talking to a supposed Joey Jones who was caddying for someone playing in the competition. No holiday romance or anything like that - just wondered if was worth my time watching the golf on telly to see if i could see him in the background, or they guy was more likely a travelling sales rep for a mattress company!!!!!!

Rofl. Great first post.

This thread should be re-titled "How Stella Got Her Groove Back"

No not holiday romance - seemed a nice guy - he asked me if i played golf when I told him I did he went to explain why he was there etc etc - the reason I am sceptical is because he was from liverpool and I know there is some sort of famous football bloke called Joey Jones connected to that area - hence why i think it may be a wind up - didnt know where else I could find out so thought i'd give one of these forums a go.

I can confirm that Joey Jones is indeed a travelling sales rep for a mattress company BedsRus. He owes me £20.

Only kidding - Google is great, see:

Looks like he loops for Barry Lane and also looped in the past for Seve (actually tried suing him)

and Ronan Rafferty among others.

What was his Chat-up line? "I wouldn't hit a 4 iron into that wind!" :biglol:

How do you think I managed to afford that CG10? These clubs don't come cheap ya know.

And by the way £20 = ~$35
(I'm trash, but at least I'm not gutter fodder...)
