O.J. Simpson’s Friends Let Him Cheat At Golf So There’s Basically Nowhere The Guy Couldn’t Get Away With Murder
The documentary has chronicled the rise and fall of an American football and movie/TV star, from his days growing up in Los Angeles to the murder trial that polarized the country. It’s also talked about golf. A lot. So much so that Golf Digest put together a list of the most interesting golf facts about “The Juice” that have been revealed in O.J.: Made in America.
For example, Simpson broke down the color barrier at several golf clubs across the country, golf was part of his community service after a domestic abuse charge in 1989 and the accused loved to doodle golf courses in the middle of his civil trial.
The most telling fact about the acquitted NFL-er was his constant cheating at golf. He basically cheated on almost every hole.
Apparently, O.J. had a bit of a reputation when it came to bending the rules on the course. It got so bad that some of his regular playing partners started hiring a caddie to keep an eye on Simpson. They even had a name for it: “Juice Patrol.”
Despite O.J.’s rep, though, his friends tolerated it, in large part due to Simpson’s charm — something that came up a lot during the documentary. “It was funny,” friend Fred Levinson said. “It was very hard to get mad at him.”
So essentially, they let O.J. get away with murder.
