Giveaway Challenge Winner: mustang6560 vs. birdieXris
By mustang6560 on 10/22/12
It gives me great pleasure to announce the winner of Giveaway Challenge: mustang6560 vs. birdieXris is yours truly — mustang6560!

I shot 77 yesterday to break 80 for the first time in my golf career. I had a birdie putt on the 18th at Patrick Farms for 79 over two years ago but I hadn't had a look at 70-something on the 18th green since — until yesterday.

It truly is an incredible feeling to finally breakthrough (more to come on that later). I would like to thank my fellow oober and competitor birdieXris! He is an outstanding golfer and I know he's close to achieving his personal goal of breaking par.

And without further ado, it's time to announce the winner of the giveaway — oober metnorm! As the winner, he'll receive a performance oobgolf polo (with his username embroidered on it) and a FREE 1-year Addict+ subscription. If you're metnorm, please reply to my private message so we can discuss your prize.

I was hoping we'd have a winner before the end of the calendar year so the challenge didn't drag out for six months, however, I didn't foresee it only lasting a week. I would like to thank everyone who entered the giveaway and again I'd like to thank birdieXris for the idea of the challenge.

Congrats. Very impressive that you achieved this during the first weekend of the challenge. Voted for you but honestly thought the pressure might be too great the first week or two even though I knew you would get it soon.

Congrats to both and continued luck to birdieXris.

I picked Nathan but I will admit that I had my doubts especially after the recent meltdown. But what can you say, he silenced the haters with this terrific score. Not only breaking 80 but busting through like the Kool-Aid man. Oh yeah!!! Welcome to respectability Nate.

Congratulations Nathan. And nice win @metnorm, wear it well.

Now let's all turn our oober energy to birdieXris in his quest to slay the par beast. Maybe a double victory in 2012?
birdieXris says:
@bkuehn1952 - that would be pretty sweet :) .. I'm as amazed as everyone else that it happened right in the first weekend after the challenge was issued. And in such spectacular fashion as well!! from 91 to 77. That's some mental stuff right there. Well done indeed. I wish i could have gotten out again on sunday, but i've been a little under the weather since friday. I guess you could say i "knew" he was going to make a strong move this weekend, but i truly thought it may go into this weekend (when i'm going to have 2 chances minimum with the wifey away :)

@bkuehn1952- Agreed. It's time to root on birdieXris!
metnorm says:
Congratz mustang on the 77 thats sweet. I'm sure birdie will get his goal in his next round just because you already got it lol. I won yay not sure how to feel about that I never win anything but I do like it Thank you.

Nice job, Nate. Now if we could only get you to learn how to use a spell-check program, and maybe take a grammar course... :)

Nice! Can't wait till I break 80. Must have been a great feeling. Congrats! Maybe birdieXris will have a chance before end of year. Still gonna give away something for those who chose him when he breaks?
