[One Boxing Glove]At least J.D. had the good sense not to fight back.
Jim King versus Pete Sesso
At the 1973 USI Classic at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, Mass., King, a fringe player, blew a gasket when told he was being put "on the clock" by Sesso, a rules official. King berated Sesso and then grabbed him by the throat. King was suspended from the Tour for a year.
[Two and Half Boxing Gloves]Nobody messed with King after that.
George Bayer versus Doug Ford
One year at the Insurance City Open in Hartford, Ford walked down the fairway while Bayer was teeing off. Later, in the locker room, the two argued, and the 6'6" Bayer picked up Ford, stuffed him into a locker and slammed the door shut. When Ford's young son begged Bayer to "let my daddy go," he released Ford.
[Four Boxing Gloves]For once, "I'll stuff you in a locker" was not just a threat.
