Recommended Posts

I'd just like to say there was a lot of hype leading up to this contest, and the contest has lived up to that hype. It's been a lot of fun so far. And I'm guessing the real fun is just getting ready to start. Even if my entries don't make the finals, I'm looking forward to reading the final entries and seeing how the votes progress. Great contest!

 

 

I would be willing to bet that if they could rewrite the rules, they would now look like this.

 

 

1. You Must be a Current MyGolfSpy Newsletter Subscriber. If You're Not, Subscribe Now (you must be subscribed to win).

2. Entries must be 100 words or less.

3. Be Creative...and maybe even funny.

4. Do NOT use the word "robot" or any synonyms there of.

5. Limit One Entry and One Vote Per Person, Per Day.

6. Use the button on the bottom of this page to share with your friends and ask them to vote for your entry or Invite them to Participate.

7. Do not ****** about the way we run this contest.

Wow. Can't believe that I made this list. Not bad for a guy who joined Facebook for this contest despite my years of self righteous grandstanding against it. But who cares, what better way to toss out ones convictions for a chance at these awesome prices. I am incredibly grateful to all the Golf Spy staff for the opporotunity. I am having a blast and just hoping to make it to the next round. Regardless, I am still going to be a reader for life.

Do you head down this way in the winter? If so bring the Yeti with - he can buy the first round. :)

 

Where exactly/how far does one have to go before I make such a big life decision? That Yeti needs to stop every few hours or that's gonna be one messy back seat AND YOU KNOW who's wife is gonna make him clean it up.

I must be from the older crowd where 90% of my friends don't even pay attention to facebook. Hopefully whoever wins this great prize really needs or appreciates it!

You've got to drag that Yeti to St. Pete! Hope he doesn't melt on the way down. And they have huge bladders I don't think he'll make such a mess - I saw the movie.

I have a question about the third place prize. It says that its a drawing between "all eligible voters", who are the eligible voters? Is it people voting that are subscribed to the newsletter or all people that 'Like' MGS on FB?

 

You need to like MGS to vote and newsletter subscription is a must, so I guess both.

I have that same question - I think it's a great way to get some of my friends to join the site. Could someone from MGS let us know the eligibility requirements for the third prize. Thanks

My friends aren't subscribed, but they have to 'Like' MGS to vote for me. Most of them don't give two craps about golf. I just wondered if they were going to be "eligible voters".

 

Yeah, that was a pain in the ass. It was a ****** to get them to like MGS and login with the contest app.

Now to ask them to subscribe to a newsletter (receiving information they don't understand) is going to be a tougher one :D

 

But the ones that do know golf really liked your entry and the one from Drew S.

The way this is going to work...

 

Everyone is eligible to vote (the Like requirement remains), but one must be subscribed to the newsletter to win. So when the 3rd place winner is selected, they will be validated against our newsletter subscription list. If they're not on it, we redraw...and so on until we find somebody who qualifies based on the newsletter requirement.

Good, tell them to keep voting for me daily. :D

 

My few FB friends that are into golf will subscribe, so they can get a chance at the prize. The ones that don't care are just supporting me, because they no I'm an addict to both golf and this site.

Thanks T - we've gotten a couple of new subscribers through my friends but like several others who have a facebook connection many of my friends there don't play golf. But they know people who do and with the blind vote plus James the facebook ing out there I'm not taking any chances - I'm really pusing it big time and that would include groups like my golf league - didn't want to impose upon them before - am now! In fact I already did.

 

For point of clarification if we are friends with an organization I'm assuming that organization can not vote for us - the idea is to have real people so that we get more real people on the site. Let me know.

Just wanted to say thanks to the MyGolfSpy panel for selecting my entry into the finals. I'm not one to go out stumping for votes, so I hope those here and others who are voting will just vote for the entry they think is best. The entry that they would most like to be a part of the MGS experience.

 

If you choose to vote for my entry, please know that you have my sincere thanks for the vote.

Displaying vote counts I think would have been a little more dramatic coming down the stretch. Would have been cool to see RevKev chase down James R right to the wire.

 

Heck with that I want to see you wrestling the yeti - couple of more neat scotches and I just may. :D

 

I think everyone is in this thing. Now that we know how the game works and what's at stake I'm sure there's lots of politicing going on plus it behooves everyone in the MyGolfSpy community to vote and vote often - that may tilt the scales a bit too - I love James' enty and am partial to my own but I know that neither is heavy on suggestion for the site - golfers may wish to support some of the other entries over ours.

 

I don't know about the other finalists but this is going to be quite the ride until the 6th. Good luck to all of you - I'm very happy to be sharing the podium with you - all of you deserve to win.

Good news for me is I won't have to give away two Masters tickets to try and buy votes and can instead sell them, lol. I saw what they're going for already so it'll pay for me and a friend's beer the 2 other days I'm going with that day. Lol.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade M2 (2017) w/ Project X T1100 HZRDUS Handcrafted 65x 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade M1 15* w/ ProjectX T1100 HZRDUS handcrafted 75x
3 Hybrid: Adams PRO 18* w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams PRO 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4-AW: TaylorMade P770 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Black Onyx S400

SW: 56* Scratch Tour Dept(CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Scratch Tour Department (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
XW: 64* Cally XForged Vintage w/ DG X100 8 iron tiger stepped
Putter: Nike Method Prototype 006 at 34"

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.
