Not literally, but I did score well by bringing home four autographed golf balls from some of the great legends of the sport -- Scott Hamilton, Kristi Yamaguchi, Michelle Kwan, and Charlie Tickner.

Scott Hamilton won four consecutive U.S. figure skating championships, four consecutive World Championships, and a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics. He was inducted into the U.S. Figure…
