Bill Clinton at the Montecito Country Club Wednesday afternoon

On Wednesday, The Indy‘s Montecito Montage columnist J’Amy Brown happened to be eating lunch at the Montecito Country Club, where she is a member. All of the sudden, there was a group of people standing up to see someone tee off. “No one that exciting comes to play golf here,” thought J’Amy, so she went to see who was about to shoot.

It was none other than former United States President Bill Clinton.

Any bets on who won the match?

See the results without voting.

He was playing a round with tennis legend and Montecito resident Jimmy Connors, who urged Clinton to let J’Amy take his picture because of her Montage reputation. So here we present those two shots to you, and say thanks to Mr. Clinton for being so friendly.
