I suppose I've never actually won a trophy. I've own prize money that I like to hold on to for awhile. However the best prizes are the ones that represent a good event or round. I shot my career best over the weekend and didn't lose a ball. I have twin daughters and I have their names on balls. I used the same ball for the front nine with one daughter's name and then switched to the other daughter for the entire back nine. They are both retired now and sitting on the mirror behind my bar, Those and my hole-in-one balls are better than any trophy I could get.

I won a two man charity scramble during a tropical storm. Wind gusts of 60 mph. My partner and myself were the only team close to par. We were 1 under. I can remember an approach of 120 yards straight into the wind. I hit a full 5 iron to the middle. I normally hit a 5 iron 185-190 yards. The side winds were the worst. Aiming into the adjoining fairway and trust he wind to blow it back.

Played a scramble where the sponsors were quiet about which prize for what place. We placed last well over par and won the best prizes, 100 gift certs for green fees. First won a shirt.

I won a dozen proV1s which is probably the most valuble thing i've ever won. That was from coming second in our junior open.

A local Bar Scramble back in the mid 80's. I was caught out a little short of cash after tipping bartenders and cart girls all day. Had $8 in my pocket as we got back to clubhouse for the awards dinner. There was a table at the door for a $5 raffle ticket for a set of the "New" Hogan Edges (first year). Full set- 3 thru SW... I hemmed and hawed a bit but plopped my $5 down for a ticket. My partners were dropping $20-$50 on tickets. After getting squat for coming in fourth behind some dubious winners, and getting nothing in the door prizes that were part of the regular cost, They announced the winner for the clubs... It wasn't me... Except you had to be there to win. He wasn't, picked again and that was me. The most expensive set of clubs I ever had- and played them for well over 10 years until they were stolen. Got them home and took a look and found that there were 2 7 irons and no 6 in the bunch. Had to go back the following week to correct it, but they didn't have the matching serial number club in the house. They were super nice about it and ordered me a replacement set to make sure I had a matching set. I also had them order me a matching 2 iron which I paid for. Then they comped a round to demo the clubs that they had in shop. About a month later I picked up my lovelies and never looked back. Man, I loved those clubs...

I've won walking golf bags twice. A decorative mirror, like a bar mirror. Shirts and hats. I never win door prizes or raffles cause my luck stinks. I have been walking away with $30 to $100 almost every round from skins game with my playing partners lately. Makes me feel bad but I do play a lot of free golf.

I won a TM R-7 driver in a putting contest back in the day when that was THE hot new driver.  I played that bad boy for 7 or 8 years until I just recently changed.

I've been pretty lucky in raffles associated with charity tournaments though.  I've won cases of wine, a microwave, a birthday party for 20 kids, a bunch of grocery/gas/retail gift cards, shirts, dozens of balls, free golf, a putter, and as an enthusiastic cook, my very favorite, a commercial grade KitchenAid mixer.

There was a tournament like that at my course last weekend, but it was a furniture store that sponsored it so the winning team all got little tables or something.

I played in a foursome that took 2nd place with -14 but the prize was just a $50 gift certificate.  Still beats nothing.

I love to cook too and would be excited about that as well.  You can put dozens of different attachments on those things and use it for countless purposes.
