Firstly, I will answer Pierre's question on Wayne's (mrcaddie) absence,
As many will know, I used to play with Wayne a lot, and man did we have some laughs.....often at his expense.....but what I stick I gave him, he would give back in spades........we ALWAYS had fun, and winning or losing made no difference,
We have each others email address (something I am pretty guarded on), so that is the trust I have in Wayne,
Needless to say, I was shocked that one day he said he was stepping away from the game, personal reasons (for the better) that I will not go into....but he is fine and enjoyed real golf and life.
So reading this post by Joe is no surprise, as I know Wayne and Joe had spoken about the ball markers, but Kudos to both Joe and Opy for this.
Andyson had a massive impact on the community, both in the Enquirer (we would always wait for the next edition eagerly) and his insight into how the game worked.....he could delve into the never regions no-one else would dare, or could enter lol
Of course to everyone who helped keep this tradition going, Bill and co......but also to those who played in honor of the great man, and to be a recipient of a ball marker is the ultimate remembrance of Dennis.
Joe, you asked for ideas......if you want, I could distribute the markers for Aus and NZ, thus keeping the postage costs from the States to a minimum....but that would only work if those in AU/NZ were comfortable with me having their addresses.
Likewise, I treat privacy as of paramount importance....
In fairness, last year there were not too many to distribute this side of the world, but I would be happy to do so again.
