London, Sept 17 (ANI): American professional golfer JB Holmes has confessed that he dropped his first name because he was tired of being confused with infamous porn star John Holmes.

John Holmes was the inspiration for the hit film Boogie Nights and boasted he had a large manhood, and had slept with 14,000 women although official estimates put the number closer to 3,000.

The Kentucky aces cause was not helped by the fact he is such a monster hitter, averaging over 310 yards off the tee, he was dubbed Long John.

Ive had to put up with that all my life, the Sun quoted JB Holmes as saying.

I didnt even know who John Holmes was at first. But I soon figured it out after people started calling me a porn star.

When I was playing high school golf I used to get it all the time, with people either trying to wind me up or have a laugh at my expense.

I got tired of it pretty quickly but other people didnt, he added.

Things began to change when Holmes agent arranged for him to play a practice round with former US Tour professional Gary McCord, who is now a top broadcaster.

My agent set up that practice round and after eight or nine holes Gary turned to me and said You know what, Im just going to call you JB from now on, Holmes added.

Thankfully, it stuck, and thats what everyone calls me now, he added. (ANI)
