Ancient Signs Traben-Trarbach, Germany Live Cam

I, Andis Kaulins of Germany & the USA, am not knowingly related to Andis Kaulins domiciled in China or Andis Kaulins domiciled in the Baltic, although I do have relatives in Latvia. Our oldest family birth records write Kaulins as "Kaulin". Collins in English may be a common distantly related differently spelled surname.
The blood line of the British monarchy traces back to the broader family of the early Anglo-Saxon Wessex king Ceawlin viz. Ceaulin. Ceaulin was the 2nd Bretwalda ("ruler of Britain").
The Indo-European word root *wal- and its variant forms mean "to rule": e.g. my mother's name was Valda. Wikipedia:
"When the line of Ceol finally became extinct, first Caedwalla of Wessex and then Ine of Wessex became king; both great-grandsons of Cuthwine. Egbert of Wessex, ancestor of the later Kings of England, descends from Ine's brother and hence also from Cuthwine [the son of Ceawlin, grandson of Cynric, son of Cerdic, the first of the Saxons to come across the sea from Germany]." Given modern genetics and new knowledge about DNA, mtDNA and haplotypes, we all know today, of course, that if you go back far enough in time, everyone is related to everyone else, so that unexpected distant relations should surprise no one.

Golf - Hole in One by Andis Kaulins, June 18, 1963

Andis Kaulins -- Hole in One, June 18, 1963

Andis Kaulins Hole in One Titleist Ball
This is the ball I used for my 1st Ace. I was 16 then
and played this ball for maybe 10 rounds - you could still cut the ball then.
The witnesses in my foursome were Lowell Berg (now retired
former head of probably the leading architectural firm in Lincoln, Nebraska,
and past President of the Rotary Club), Roger Yant and Mike Ley
(who in 1972 was Nebraska Match Play Champion).
You could in those days send the ball in to Titleist (Acushnet)
and have them stamp your name and date on it, which I did.

The Nebraska State High School Golf Championship Teams 1964, 1967

I was on the 1964 Nebraska State Championship Golf Team
and my brother was on the 1967
Nebraska State Championship Golf Team.

Lincoln High School Nebraska State Golf Champions 1964

Players above: (bottom left to right)
Andis Kaulins, George Snider, Charles Borner (medalist, and in 1970 Nebraska Match Play Champion, now a golf pro),
Dennis Bradshaw (later a PGA graduate), Galen Ullstrom (later a lawyer and insurance executive), and Sam Beechner.
The golf coach, Dick Beechner, is not pictured but see
Nebraska High School Sports Hall of Fame.
The 1964 team was inducted into the Lincoln High School Hall of Fame in October, 2012,
together with the 1967 team, which also won the state title. My brother Arv (Arveds) was on that 1967 team.

Today, at 6 feet tall and weighing in at about 220, I am known here and there for my long drives,
occasionally outdriving top young players, even though I turned 66 in December, 2012.
I have always been interested in sports and was pretty good at all of them,
but I had skipped the 1st grade in school,
so I was always a year younger and smaller than most of my classmates.
I grew a lot in my senior year in high school, too late for any varsity sports except golf,
and that has remained my sport ever since.
The 1964 Lincoln High School golf team of which I was a member was the Class A State Golf Champion
and the entire team was inducted into the LHS Athletic Hall of Fame in October 2012.

I was unable to attend the ceremonies but the rest of the team was there.
My brother Arv Kaulins represented the Kaulins family in his own right
as a member of the Lincoln High School 1967 Class A State Golf Championship team
that was inducted into the LHS Athletic Hall of Fame at the same time:

The above photograph from the JournalStar in Lincoln, Nebraska
shows two Nebraska State Golf Championship Teams:
  • The Class of 1964 State Championship Golf Team in the back row
    (Dick Beechner, coach, and players Jerry Rockwell, Dennis Bradshaw,
    Galen Ullstrom, Allen Bettin, Charles Borner (medalist), Sam Beechner and George Snider).
    I did not attend as my brother represented the family, and so I am not pictured.
    I am the only team member who lives in Europe, and it would have been a long flight.
  • The Class of 1967 State Championship Golf Team in the front row
    Bonnie Kuklin (daughter of coach Harry Kuklin), Mike McGuire,
    Bob Dann, Arveds Kaulins (my brother), Tim Knopp and Lance Gloe.

Andis Kaulins, Golf Senior Champion at Stromberg and Team Player in the German Golf League

After graduating from Stanford Law School,
I won our law firm's internal golf championship in New York,
and after moving to Europe, I also played briefly for the team of a golf club in Germany,
but after their caddie house burned down, and my golf clubs and accessory equipment with it,
I saw that as a message from above to turn to other things in life
and did not play golf for another ca. 30 years.

Andis Kaulins Stromberg Golf 2003

I resumed play in the 21st century and won a couple of tournaments,
winning the Stromberg Golf Club Senior Men's Championships in 2003 and 2004.

I also played in several teams in the German Golf League

Stomberg Golf Club Young Seniors Team 2007 [over age 35]
German Golf League, Karlsberg Cup

Stromberg Golf Club Young Seniors 2007
In no particular order, our team consisted of players whose professions were:
tax man, CEO, prof, technician, geek, banker, lawyer, engineer, entrepreneur.

Cochem Club Championship Golf Trophy Ceremony 2008

In 2008 I won the men's club championship at the Cochem Golf Club.

The castle outline was used by the golf club as the motive

on the golf champions plaque above. Scroll up and take a look.

Martha, My Signficant Other
and Golf Partner

The most memorable round ever
was one that Martha and I played at Stromberg,
winning an alternate shot tournament
with a phenomenal scratch score of 71
(i.e. without handicap).

Here is the most recent video, as I am on the driving range in 2012 at age 65.
