"Pretty Damn Crazy" - Immelman enjoys new fame from victory

After his first major championship, which came at the 2008 Masters, Trevor Immelman has enjoyed a new level of fame.

The Associated Press reports, "One day after becoming the Masters champion, Immelman was courtside at Madison Square Garden for the Boston Celtics’ 99-93 victory over the New York Knicks. He was invited to the Celtics’ locker room at halftime by coach Doc Rivers, who wanted his team to shake hands with a champion."

While in New York, the young South African spoke with David Letterman. TGC.com states, "The topic was 'Ways Trevor Immelman’s Life Has Changed Since Winning the Masters.' The list included:
10. I’ve been elevated from 'unknown' to 'obscure.'
6. President Bush called to congratulate me on winning Wimbledon.
5. When my caddy recommends a club I can say, 'Excuse me, how many Masters have you won?'
1. Get to put my arm around Tiger Woods and say, 'Maybe next year.'"
