So I lay in bed wondering what I may do with a pile of cold hard lottery cash. Who doesn't?
My best three buddies would bed a fitting for whatever they may need. Me too, of course. I may have to take a trip somewhere to get it done. Cali to Titleist, Japan for Miura, Mizzy, Fourteen. Atlanta? Close to home for a fitting? A smaller mobile fitting at my home course? Endless possibilities.
Jets to Scotland I think. I know of an apartment that overlooks St Andrews. A must start. Many great courses would have to be played with Many dinners and cocktails. End it up before I fly, alone, to Bandon, at Skibo Castle for an adventure with golf falconry and many more great meals. I may have to find them a gift, other than the trip, Like a rare putter or something to serve as a memento.
I can see my black and white Jones carry bag tagging along on this trip full of new sticks just waiting for an opportunity to give me a thrill.
Can you smell the haggis?

Funny you should mention it.

Just this morning my wife was telling me how we'd sell the house, keep the condo, and buy one of those hugemongous tour bus/motorhome things - and turn into nomads, just traveling the country, visiting family, friends, and any golf course that might be along the way or out of the way. ... And invite anyone along the way to join us.

There's a guy I met a couple of times who's doing just that. He's a golf course photographer and I think he wrote a couple articles for Golf Digest. Anyway, he quit his job and is traveling around the country playing golf in all 50. I'll add a link to his website. He is also on social media. http://www.pjkoenig.com/overview/

We would buy a home in Jack's Desert Moutain golf community in AZ and spend our winters there. Then we would jet off to our country cottage on the west coast of Ireland every summer.

You dont need a lottery win to stay at a place overlooking St Andrews old course. The Rusacks is 12 feet (yes I measured it lol) from the 18th Fairway and you get great deals there for B&B and its steeped in golf history and memorabilia.

i just want to take my closest golfing friend for an amazing trip with cost not being a factor. I would like to be able to spend the time I want at some of those Scottish / Euro courses I keep dreaming about.

I have standing agreements with several people that if I hit the Powerball, I give them a million dollars, and they me if they win. Beyond that it's cars (of my choosing) for friends and family, college for the kids (nieces, nephews, friends of family, etc.), a modest lake home here and a little cabin up North. A million dollar donation to the Centers for Missing and Exploited Children and some travel would follow. Also- some medical/dental things would be sorted out. And golf EVERYWHERE!

My thought would be to go to one of the following: 

 

Phoenix, The Kingdom or the ECPC for a full bag fitting.  

 

After that it would be a short flight up the coast to Bandon and home...

 

We can all dream right?

I was fortunate enough to stay there last weekend, heres a pic from the room overlooking the 18th. (posted some others in pics thread)

Depending on the amount of the win, I'd breakout the winnings this way:

5 million each to (trust fund):
My son
My daughter


2 million to:
My parents
My brother

1 Million to:
Mother in Law
Brother in Law
My niece (trust fund)
My nephew (trust fund)
Cancer society
Alzheimer's Association

I'd donate a significant amount to MGS and save a lot of the winnings to make sure I can grow old without worrying about money again (too many horror stories about lottery winners blowing through their cash and being in worse financial shape than before they won the lottery).
I would also put aside money for each of my kids college tuitions and that of my neice and nephew so they can all go to college and grad school on me.
Now comes the splurge part -

*Sell our current house and buy a new home still in Maryland, but on the water.
*Buy a beach house...in Aruba
*Buy a small boat in the 25' range for cruising the Chesapeake Bay
*Buy a dream car...whether that may be a Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren plus a daily driver (thinking an Audi S8, AMG S65)
*Travel

And for my golfing buddies...rent a jet to fly all over the world and hit the top 10 best courses.

Now if I win the $10 scratch off, it's a meal at McDonald's for the family 😁😂🤣

Yeah, I've been thinking about this plan for a while😁

Excellent, well thought out plans. It is good to be prepared so you don't have to figure out the major decisions once the win occurs.
