GREENWICH-- He started as a caddy, doing loops around the Stanley Country Club in New Britain. Dick Siderowf was just 10 or 11 years old. It was a couple of summers after World War II had ended, and he was looking to make a buck. Or two. So, he and a couple of buddies got jobs carrying clubs.
Pretty soon, Siderowf would take 45 cents of that hard-earned money and drag his own clubs around Stanley for nine holes. And it didn't take long for this to become almost a daily habit.
