This was the day that was to be the busiest and it proved to be true. I decided to show early in order to get parked a bit easier and, indeed it was quicker than trying to park at the last minute. The traffic is horrendous.
Great surprise right away; Nancy Lopez showed up at the booth beside us and hung around for over an hour as she endorses their product, iDGRIPS. I took a moment to snap her picture and talk with her a bit about Mulligan Magazine. My understanding is that she has been a woman of faith through her Catholic upbringing. She was open to our concept and Dann Lemerand was able to speak to her later in the day and further gain a commitment from her to take a look at the magazine and see how she may want to contribute. She's a wonderful ambassador for the game with her incredible career with 52 victories. I call her; "the Arnold Palmer of the women's game".
We continued to discuss the direction of the "golf ministry" group, including; Jim Hiskey, Bill Rogers, Links Players International as well as a couple of other folks I did not recognize. He talked about how the "Mulligan GC" was originally meant to be the vehicle by which they would reach all golfers for Christ, but, the medium just didn't happen the way they expected. He was encouraged by the direction of Mulligan Magazine and Kingdom.golf in moving the concept forward. He also mentioned the 2016 Payne Stewart Cup location being changed to Northern Ireland, in fact, the group was discussing that concept this weekend.
