About EU Pundit

EUPundit is written by Andis Kaulins, a joint EU and USA citizen, born in Germany in 1946, J.D. Stanford University Law School (1971); alumnus of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, an international law firm headquartered in New York City; former FFA Law Lecturer in Anglo-American Law, University of Trier, Germany; co-author of the world's leading Langenscheidt Routledge German-English, English-German Dictionary of Business, Commerce and Finance (chief editor Ludwig Merz), and author of books on the history of civilization, ancient scripts and languages, and megalithic cultures.

Andis Kaulins, who writes EUPundit, won the men's golf club championship
at the Mosel Golf Club in Cochem, Germany, 2008, at age 61 3/4.

and I am at the far right as the men's champion.

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:

Golf - Nebraska State High School Golf Champions 1964

A Hole in One is a Special Feeling.
Plus, it was my grandfather's birthday.

Golf Champions 1964

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 send the ball in to Titleist (Acushnet) and have them stamp your name and date on it, which I did.
