Here's Jeff- Looking like he won $1000
World Am Winner!
By Kickntrue on 4/15/09
We've got a winner! Congrats to Jeff Brittain from Newport News, Virginia. He'll be joining oobgolf and thousands of others at the World Amateur Handicap Championship this summer.

If you were not the lucky one- don't fret. You can still come and we'd love to see you there. Here is Jeff's winning essay on golf in the future, though it should be noted that the giveaway was a random drawing, not based on what was actually written.
For amateurs: Ten years from now golf will be more inclusive, affordable, competitive and technological. Golf will be less affluent, seasonal, and stressful. More people, playing more golf, having more fun.

For professionals: Ten years from now, golf will be played by an international collective of younger, faster, physical players. Statistical analysis will spread like wildfire enabling better players to clearly identify the specific area of need. Hence, allowing them to shave a stroke or two off of their game. Technology will plateau and more emphasis will be placed on course and statistical strategy.
I like where his head's at, especially the part about all the stats. :)

If you'd like to come to Myrtle Beach to play in the World Amateur Handicap Championships with Jeff, Kevin and me go HERE and sign up. Use Promo Code "oob09" for $50 off*. It really is a great deal and I've talked to people who have played in it before- and they say it's the best 4 day golf experience you can have. It will change the way you play golf.

For fun- I'll post some of the better "where will golf be in 10 years" essays soon. Thanks for everyone who entered!

we ought to have a contest within the contest, for example which oobgolfer does the best amongest other oobgolfers. We can crown them the first annual oobgolfer of the year. So if an oobgolfer wins the world am they will have two tittles to go with it. Maybe the guys at oobgolf can get someone to sponsor a prize just for oobgolfers. What do you guys think?

I love the oobgolfer title as well! That would a lot of fun to have within the tournament!

The outfits are over-rated. Just because I occasionally step up on the 1st tee with some circa 70's plaid pants and an old school Arnold Palmer golf shirt doesn't mean much! Part of golf is fashion! If not, why would we pony up $$$ to look the part. It just so happens that I try to look the part from 1970! Bomp-chicka-bow-wow...

And...only a CrAzY brother-in-law would deliver a message on Sunday in an outfit like mine! C'mon Rev...get you a throw back and drop the knowledge on the congregation!
