    I received mine in today's mail Joe. It's a beauty. Thank you. I bet I'll be the only one at the local muni with one. I won't even take gimmes because I'll want to show it off so much.  Thanks also to mrcaddie for the nice nostalgic card. Back when golf was a rich man's sport. Thanks to Paulton, Wayne and Opy as well. You guys do good work.

    It's a guaranteed one putt after you use it Will.

    I had them put some "straightputtonium" inside during the forging process. The guarantee states, "a one putt shall follow the use of the marker, no matter where it is placed".

    There is a $500.00 prize up for grabs if anyone can claim it.

    There were not as many recipients from across the pond this year, so, I mailed everything off myself.

    I thank you all for the offers of help. Especially when writing the addresses in the UK.

    Crikey, it is like writing a novella...

    I hope they all arrive.

    Thanks again everyone that participated.

    joe

     I just received mine today, along with an original " Joe " rendition of my profile pic on the envelope, an' laughed all the way back from the post office. It will take its'  rightful place on my monitor ( as I don't golf IRL ) an' join my treasured collection of WGT memorabilia which now consists of ( in no particular order ) a Mr. Caddie birthday cake golfcart, a picture of me an' the fellers in Oneonta NY, a Minimizer putter ( a prize from Opy's 9th year bash ), Joe's envelope & card ( oh hell yeah, there's no way I'm throwin' them out ), a Yankee Jim business card, an' my 2017 & 2018 Andyson ball markers.

    All reminders of the good folks who make this more than just a game.  Thank you Joe for keepin' the torch lit.

    Doc :)

    Yeah Doc, hang on to that one off drawing, on the envelope, for sure. The day I die, you'll be rich beyond avarice my friend. After all, a live artist isn't worth diddly squat...

    On the other hand, I would say that you most certainly are the richest man, on WGT. What, with all that swag your piling up. LOL

    Sounds like Doc needs a treasure chest, and soon, before his swag starts trickling out into the street. I'll see what I can do about that ;-)

    I'm elated that the constraints of my artistic abilities have found a funny bone, to convey my thanks, for all the contributions you have made into the fracas Doc. Just paying it forward, Bro

    Let's not forget about the illustrious Opy, in this endeavor. It's Opy's sacrifice that is delivering all this joy to their destinations.

    Aaron, I'm glad to see the USPS has traversed the country so quickly. There's nothing so big as the state you call home. Keep the riff raff out brother.

    You're most welcome Gary. I am one in front of you. Only because I stole one for myself this year.

    Without a doubt, this dog & pony show, (WGT), has been one of the most unsuspecting platforms, in the gaming world. Who would have thought, a bunch of people could, or would ever, come to know each other in such a personal way.

    Honestly, I blame mrcaddie.

    He is solely responsible in my mind, for the unadulterated whimsical means, for the need people have, to want to help others. The answer to the endearing question, as to "why we are here", can be summed up by Wayne's generosity.

    We all are here to help one another. It's that simple.

    If it were not for his constant quest, to better humanity through acts of kindness, I think a good lot of us, would have closed up shop, a long time ago.

    Accolades to you all, for taking part in an adventure few seldom find.

    Libations for everyone!

    Joe
