Get Kinky with Willie

Kinky Friedman is running for governor, and Willie Nelson is trying to raise money for his friend through golf.

Willie is hosting a golf outing and lunch at his Pedernales ranch and golf course, both of which will benefit Kinky's gubernatorial campaign. Former professional wrestler Jesse "The Body" Ventura (who was also a governor, according to rumor) will be there, too.

The date is Sept. 24. The cost: $5,000 for nine holes plus lunch. The event is limited to 20 people. Another 100 people will be able to join Kinky, Willie and Jesse for lunch only for $1,000.

If you want to get Kinky with Willie, head over to Friedman's website, www.kinkyfriedman.com, for more details.

  1. Unrelated, but thought I'd share.

    I was playing out at Avery Ranch on Saturday afternoon and saw one of the most amazing things I have ever seen, on or off the golf course. There was a dude standing on the 16th tee with one leg. His other leg was gone at the hip. He stood over the ball, hit his drive right down the middle. Hopped back over to the cart, went to his second shot, hit it up on the green. When he got to the edge of the green, his buddy carried him side saddle to the ball so he would make big indentions in the green and putted. After the putt, his buddy carried him back to the edge where he hopped on his own back to the cart. The guys I was playing with stood in absolute amazement at what we just witnessed. No prosthetic, no assistance whatsoever. Dude just was out playing golf. Absolutely put my game in perspective.
