The Cup is on the journey. It's now in the hands of the USPS and heavily insured...

I just noticed this and it made me curious.

The first location on that list I am presuming is @iacas and @Club Rat I'm presuming your location is the third one which I believe is Missouri.  Since the Cup is with @kpaulhus who I think said he was in Arkansas, who had it at the "2" location of Phoenix, Arizona?

Erik brought the Cup to Phoenix. I entered Moon Valley as the location of event being played. Mike asked me to take the cup home and ship it later because I drove to Phoenix.

Also Erik and Mike had big plans to play golf and they had tons of other stuff to take care of.

And that's the rest of the story folks.

Not sure why you italicized the font but thank you for the back story.

It was purely accidental, I must have tagged the big "I" while using the onscreen keyboard.

I noticed it halfway through the message and was too lazy to correct it.

Italics are sexy like me, that's what my wife tells me........

I figure it must be true because many of my golf buddies give me the French Salute after they hand me their Cash O'la.....

I'd actually mailed the Cup to Mike first, a few months ahead of time, as he was droving to Phoenix (before taking a flight home).

Cup will be shipped to @mvmac tomorrow. I ended up bringing the cup to my country club and smoking cigars with some buddies on the back deck Saturday after our round. WE talked about the tournament, TST, and the trip we are planning to Orlando. 

I didnt end up drinking out of the cup. I have a bit of a cold and didnt really want to scrub the inside lol. I updated the box with my location and will send Mike the tracking info. Im sure it will be a busy week at the post office. 

 

ps. Yes, the stache is real.

Had a great day with the Newport Cup! Golf club was closed today so the cup hung out with me for some putting practice.

Nice job with getting it fixed @Club Rat! I'll try my best to replicate the professional packing job that you and @kpaulhus did. Will be on it's way to @Golfingdad tomorrow.

Here's a Pro tip.

Lay the cup on it's side, the the bottom makes a good target for putting practice...  ;-)

Today was my day with the cup.  The kids all wanted to drink out of it, but the inside doesn't look terribly sanitary, so we let them fake it:

Next, it accompanied me to work (safety first!!!) ...

Where it spent the day in a place of somewhat prominence

And lastly, it watched with a keen eye as I did my daily 5 minutes of practice.

So, who's next??

(I have pictures for each of these but my phone is being a butt right now)

@Big C is next I think. Then he can ship it to me. 

Then, I will be taking bribes from the blue team to decide who should get it first. :-D
