    Yup you got it .......a Golfers hacker trophy. Was given to me in the one and only golf tournament i entered way back in the day. Never ever again did i enter a competition.

    I got this for the longest day along with a small keyring compass. The compass was so i could find my way around the course next time. NOT.

    Hey i felt honored. The guys in the middle of the field were totally forgotten at least i went home with a prize and a trophy.

    These things make good memories.



    Now lets see i wonder what the Pawn Stars would give me for this piece of junk.


    Any other woodworkers that have a golfing story.
    cheers

    I have only been on a golf course legally twice in my life. The gal I was with one time ended up drunk.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Back when I played I had a saying; "I'm paying for the whole course; I'm gonna use the whole course". Woodworking is sooo much cheaper.

    Golf is what you play when you're too out of shape to play softball.

    At one time I too was competing for world's worst golfer, but last year I got promoted from a hacker to a duffer.

    I find (heard) the greens at night are the best place to harvest night crawlers

    Looks good Rob, a trophy is a trophy
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Rob, Rob, Rob...

    I realize you're a transplant, but you should have learned by now that Golf is just 'Summer Curling', Eh?

    ps... congrats on the hardware!

    When talking with folks about my woodworking, golfers inevitably ask, "When do you take time to play golf?" They can't seem to understand that not everyone is like them. In the amount of time it takes to play a round of golf, I can get a lot done in my shop!

    (Yes, I played golf regularly many years ago. Never again, though.)
