    since I can’t throw a rock through a rock I need a lock on the rock

    Think about it

      I think that another not-in-the-poem word is an important one, and perhaps may be somewhat "key" -- but I don't know how much. It's "binoculars". I am treating it like a (confirming) hint.
      Remind me again what that story was about OP all I can remember is someone making a hole in one

          I remember the guy would take a swig from a hidden container every time he lifted the binoculars up to his eyes. The stick figure drawing made him look a bit tipsy, and I'm surprised he didn't spill his drink all over his face and chest! LOL! I will have to go back and re-read that one because I don't remember much more than that.

            His flask he drank from was 3/16 of a pint. I surmise that his name was John but who knows?

            Then it was also a curious coincidence was when Forrest had his birthday and figured out that of all those years that he had been alive, that he had spent 19 years of total time alive sleeping. Then he did the math and figured that of those 19 years asleep, 3 years of the 19 would have been on a Monday. (Doing the math problem Forrest hints to us to us to complete is: 19 total years = 3 years Monday + X all the others days of the week
            x=?

              Well one time a friend of Forrest, while playing golf, shot a birdie on the fourth. Now to understand why Forrest would mention this you must have a quarter (a fourth) in your possession. Then looking at it, ask yourself, What is that image referred to as? What's on the reverse side on that object? Oh, that bird image, was one of the mojo beads; right next to that shadow X. Interesting.....

                            Fenn wrote (Scrapbook 180) about "the unfortunate hiccup" . . . A spectator at a golf competition, with booze and binoculars, hiccupped just before the golfer (that Fenn liked) putted, apparently thus causing the putt to miss.
                            Which of course is NOT what happened at all. The missed putt was due to a dog barking. It's an easily searchable story, and Forrest must have expected we would, so why the imaginative alteration? It shares much in common with the Ronald Reagan climbing through the Dude motel window story.

                              If FF is not to be believed, then we may as well drop him and all his writings from future consideration. Is this what you suggest?
