It’s still early in the year, but this very well could be our “Bad Jock of the Year” story for 2011. Just listen to this: The nice folks in Corbin, Kentucky, like many communities this time of year, were having a charity golf scramble to raise money for a good cause. In this case, it was the Joey Taylor Memorial Golf Scramble, named after local avid golfer Joey Taylor, with the proceeds going to help fund the budding career of a young local golfer. All good there. Sounds like everyone was having a good time at the tournament . . . maybe too good a time.
It seems the Taylor family wasn’t pleased with some of the “obscene” behavior going on at the scramble being held in their loved one’s named and threatened to pull their name off the event. This apparently upset the scramble’s organizer, one Danny Davenport, who apparently made significant enough threats against the family that the cops had to be called . . . to a charity golf event. Officers promptly arrived at the Williamsburg Country Club and Golf Course and stopped all the vehicles leaving the event.
Now, enter “exotic dancers” Amythyst Brown, 20, and Lacresia Moberly, 25, who–when stopped by police–claimed they had been hired by the previously mentioned Danny Davenport to sell alcohol and food. Sure. (He probably had no idea they were strippers when he hired them.) Because Brown had jumped out of her car at the entrance where police were stopping vehicles, officers quickly determined from her breath that she likely was a prime candidate for a DUI. So, they searched her car and found a small amount of weed and a little blue pill. Later Brown admitted to officers that the pill was the party drug Ecstasy and she had been selling them for $20 a pop at the scramble to make a little side money because “times were rough and she had to support her 5-year-old.” Oh, and she also just found out that she’s pregnant AGAIN. Moberly, a passenger in Brown’s car, was also apparently extremely drunk and arrested on alcohol intoxication charges.
If the Taylor family had any doubts about pulling their name from the event, the arrest of two drunk strippers, one selling Ecstasy to the players could very well seal the deal.
Now THAT’S a bad jock story. Video from WKYT below.
You want me to do WHAT, Judge Smails?
We don’t remember seeing this at all in Caddyshack, do you? Or did they cut out that scene where Danny Noonan has sex with one of the club members after 18 holes of lugging his bag around. (That, in itself, just sounds wrong.) No, we’re pretty sure we’d remember something like that after having seen the movie about 100 times.
So it must be that the caddies (in this case female caddies) in Indonesia are the first ones to pull the “two-fer” offering both golf logistics services and sexual relaxation services in one convenient package. And, of course, they seemed happy with the arrangement as did most of their clients, but for some reason the Indonesian authorities aren’t quite as enthusiastic about this advancement in “sports entertainment” as you might think.
It’s this kind of government intervention that’s killing entrepreneurship!
Maybe Danny can earn that caddy scholarship after all?
Details from Yahoo! Sports:
A group of female Indonesian golf caddies at a resort in Kulai, Malaysia, are doing more than just carrying golfers’ bags and giving golfing tips to players. They also provide sexual services. The state Immigration Department found this out when they arrested 26 Indonesian female caddies. Johor enforcement unit head Mohd Nakhafi Hasan said the department received a tip-off on the caddies who worked at the reputable golf resort.
“The women usually work as caddies at the resort during the day and then prostitute themselves to golfers during the night. All the female caddies were detained during the operation conducted at about 8am at the resort,” he said, adding that the women were aged between 21 and 46.
The greatest criminal in Texas history has finally been caught! Okay, maybe the greatest fake golf tournament criminal in Texas history, but still, this guy was the best at what he did. . . even though it was really, really wrong.
Meet John Mark Moyers (mug shot, right) who has been traveling Arkansas and Texas for the past two years (yes, two years!) running fake golf tournaments and charity food drives. His basic scam: reserve a golf course for a tournament (for a good cause, naturally) then start collecting entry fees, prizes, gift cards and other donations from local businesses–all while living it up at a local hotel. Then, just before the tournament he would skip town and run the same scam somewhere else. The fact that he was able to support himself for two years is amazing and disgusting at the same time. What he did meant money that probably would have gone to a reputable charity did not, and folks who might otherwise be very open to an event like this now have a bitter taste in their mouths. Bad man!
Details from the Dallas Morning News:
John Mark Moyers, 50, was taken into custody March 24, accused of felony theft over accusations that he scammed local businesses out of thousands for a fake golf tournament in Weatherford. He remains held on the Parker County jail in lieu $7,500 bail. Authorities believe Moyers perpetrated nearly one dozen similar scams in Texas and Arkansas over the last two years, raking in as much as $70,000, according to a news release outlining Moyers’ alleged misdeeds.
Police say they discovered the con job when a victim of a scam in Little Rock, told the Weatherford golf course about Moyers. In his Weatherford hotel room, authorities found receipt books, showing he’d collected more than $5,000 from the fake Weatherford tournament, authorities said. Police say Moyers would tell the golf courses that he planned to reserve the course for a tournament. He’d then promote the event, but would not pay the deposit, police said.
As part of the ruse, he collected entry fees, donations, gift cards, door prizes and money from area businesses before skipping town, police said. Moyers told investigators he used the ill-gotten profits to support himself for more than two years while living in hotels.

Not sure how to feel about this one… The part of me that regularly acknowledges responsibility and control says “No.”; but my “party-on” side says ” Oh, Hell yeah… Beeoooootttcchhhhhh!!!!!”. All I know for sure is that if you find yourself in dire need of an “Eight Ball” in Scotland… Just get a hold of these blokes and ask for the (codename) “Triple Bogey”.

As a side note: Although I had some fun with this story, I would like to make absolutely, positively sure that everyone out there understands that I; in no way, shape, or form, condone processing multiple kilos of coke in the midst of dancing toddlers.
And, call me preachy if you must, that should just be how it is for any decent human being on this Earth.
A HISTORIC golf club and a children’s dance school were among premises raided as part of a massive police operation which netted £500,000 worth of cocaine. Two men were arrested and charged with drug dealing offences following the swoops at the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club and LA Dance School, both in Prestonpans.
Kenneth Glen, the professional’s assistant at the golf club, and Gary Yorke – who is believed to be connected with the dance school – have already appeared in private at Edinburgh Sheriff Court to face the charges.
More than 100 officers were deployed on a string of raids in Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian, and Lanarkshire, with 11.7 kilos of cocaine recovered from a number of locations. But a golf club spokesman said that no drugs had been found during the raid, which was carried out last Friday. The premises targeted were believed to have been used in the alleged cutting and bulking of controlled drugs.

In some parts of the country, municipal golf courses are great cash cows for cities strapped for funds and they bring in a small, but steady stream of much needed revenue. In other places, the clubs struggle to hang on, sometimes costing towns money to keep them open. Then there’s the Eagle’s Landing Golf Club in Sevierville, Tennessee where the course should have been making good money of the past two years, but wasn’t. Seems like a lot of golfers were buying rounds and then asking for refunds. And we’re talking about a LOT of refunds: over 95K worth in just over two years. That’s a lot of guys changing their minds after the fact, and how often does that seem to happen? Trouble is, it only seemed to happen when Faye Randolph was working the cash register.
So, after only two years and all that missing money, someone finally decided to investigate and now Faye is accused of creating fake refunds to cover the fact that she was allegedly skimming from the golf course. She even reportedly created a second set of books to hide the fact that there weren’t any refunds. No word yet on what Randolph allegedly spent the money on, but guessing from the mug shot at right, it was something wild, right? Right?
Here’s more on the story from KnoxNews:
Faye Randolph, 46, arrested last week after a grand jury returned a seven-count indictment, created records showing fictitious refunds for rounds of golf at the former Eagle’s Landing Golf Club to conceal cash she took from the clubhouse between Jan. 1, 2008, and March 14, 2010, according to a letter released by state authorities. Officials allege that Randolph stole $95,139 from the course.
Randolph is accused of destroying the original records that reflected the actual amounts of money collected from course fees, Dycus wrote. The actual amounts collected were significantly higher than what Randolph reported on a regular basis, according to Dycus.
Brian Keith Beattie used to have a pretty easy job as a security guard at a fancy Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. Likely his most important duty was making sure that drunk, rich businessmen got into the right car and out of the parking lot after hitting the “19th hole” before getting into a wreck. But you know, it’s boring, aimless jobs like that which sometimes cause the mind to wonder, and possibly get you in trouble.
For his part, Beattie claims he was just hanging outside the women’s locker room looking for a parking valet. A witness claims he went above and beyond the call of duty if that was the case, standing on a garbage can so he could look in a window to get a better view. Cops aren’t buying his story for some reason.
Brian Keith Beattie, 26, was arrested at the country club, 7000 NW Grand Blvd. about 11 p.m. Saturday, according to a Nichols Hills police report. Another security officer at the country club told a Nichols Hills police officer he had witnessed Beattie peeking in the women’s bathroom and changing area.Beattie told the officer he was looking into the bathroom trying to find a valet worker, the report states. The security guard who made the report to police said Beattie was seen following a female as she walked to the changing area, then the guard saw Beattie stand on a trash can lid and look into a window where women were changing, the report states.
