The Mulligan Magazine is a family-friendly golf magazine dedicated entirely to the world of golf and the amazing people in it. While we consider ourselves a faith-based magazine and company, you don't have to be a Christian to enjoy the stories of faith and inspiration around the game - whether it's the PGA Tour, the LPGA Tour, U.S. Kid's Golf, your own local outing and everything in between. Our goal is to provide clean, relevant, family-friendly content for the entire family. Mulligan Magazine is proud to sponsor this newsletter from Caddy For A Cure!

World #1 Jordan Spieth
 
 
 
 
 
It seems each week we "caddy for a cure" we come to the end of the week and say to ourselves..."that was the coolest experience we have had." Well, even after the likes of people like Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Lexi Thompson and hundreds of other professional golfers - enter one 22 year old young man named Jordan Spieth to keep setting the bar higher. Oh yeah, did we mention he is the highest ranked player in the world?
 
 
 
 
This golf sensation showed our "caddy" Dennis McGlone from Slippery Rock, PA how someone gets ranked #1 on the Official World Golf Ranking system - you play pretty darn well, is how. Jordan displayed all the skills of the best in the world - but it was the things that occurred "off course," if you will, that made him our #1. This young man "gets it" and we want to tell the whole world about that.
 
 
 
 
With our alignment and commitment to the military through Birdies for the Brave, we are proud to offer these experiences to our brave wounded service members. As a PGA Professional - the opportunity to offer these experiences as part of the growth of the game initiative that lies deep within the PGA of America framework only adds to our pride. Introducing these men and women to the great game of golf through our program is the best platform we know how to use.
 
 
 
 
His name is SSGT Brian Mast (ret) US Army Ranger. His story is he served our country well as a Special Ops bomb technician. When his legs were taken, they certainly did not take his heart or his love of country. Indeed, this young man is continuing to serve as he makes a run for Congress in the 18th District in South Florida. Humbled is a small euphemism to describe the site of this day with Jordan Spieth, Dennis McGlone, and Brian Mast. Wow is all we can say!
 
 
 
 
Golf at its finest. #1 player in the world giving to charity. Charitable caddy not only gifting to charity, but assisting a brave young man who has given so much in his efforts to protect our freedoms and liberty. A brave young man willing to walk 18 holes with the best golfer in the world and show everyone not only he, but the United States of America, cannot be beat.
 
 
 
 
Many thanks to Jordan Spieth, to his full time caddy Michael Greller, and to BMW Championships Tournament Director Vince Pellegrino and his staff. And most of all, to loyal supporters Dennis and Jan McGlone for your efforts for this experience. Lastly, thank you SSGT Mast, you are a hero to anyone and everyone who comes in contact with you. Hooah Sir!

LPGA Stars Ko, Piller, and Martin "CFAC"
 
 
 
 
 
Lydia Ko highlighted one of the best weeks we have ever had with the LPGA Tour recently at the Cambia Portland Classic. While she did not win this week, she won the following week, and then won two weeks in a row after that. She became the 27th and 28th Tour Professional to win the week of or week after they "caddy for a cure." Coincidence? We think not in a big way.

"On the bag" this special week for Lydia was Emerick Construction CEO Larry Sitz. Not only does this company support and sponsor us each year - people like Larry come out to actually caddy, as well. Pretty cool seeing that Emerick logo on the Emerick MAN!
 
 
 
 
This young lady can play! Goodness gracious she can play. We saw it, we watched it, we learned it. What we also saw was one incredibly mature young lady who really understands charity at such a tender and young age. She moved into the Caddy For A Cure "family" at warp speed and adopted our National Spokesperson as her older brother in seconds. Good onya there young lady!
 
 
 
 
Also joining the ranks of "caddy" was Miss Chloe Barnes who caddy'd for Ricoh British Open Champion Mo Martin. What a day she had with one of the world's best golfers. Despite her small frame, Mo plays with the heart of a lion and also has a heart the size of Texas. Chloe came through our "Caddy For A Cure with Character" program, this time sponsored by our dear friends at Emerick Construction of Portland.
 
 
 
 
How about a day with Solheim Cup star Gerina Piller? Yep, High School golfer Maggie Peters got the call from Corey Lohman that she was going to have the time of her life with Gerina, and did she ever! Our program is designed to reward youngsters who have displayed character, integrity, and all the qualities of success. Things we believe strongly in that add up in the long run. Emerick Construction believes this as well with it's "work, live, play" motto.
 
 
 
 
Many thanks to our dear friend Corey Lohman and his company Emerick Construction. Assisted by LPGA player Gail Graham - we could not have done this without you! Many thanks to our pal and Tournament Director Rob Neal and the entire LPGA staff at the Portland Cambia Classic. Tom Maletis and his staff are just unreal awesome people!
 
 
 
 
 
Our Thoughts...
 
 
 
 
 
It happens all the time. A parent-child experience with one of the best players in the world. When it does, the Oakley's stay on pretty much all day. Can't let the tears of joy be seen by too many. It happened at The Barclays with our friends Paul Treacy and his stepson Liam Bourke.

There they were. Enjoying a day of a lifetime caddying for Lee Westwood, also of England. The shots were great. The laughs were loud and strong. It was great. The only thing I saw was a parent and a child bonding like nothing else. Like my Dad and I did when I was young.

How grateful I am that my Dad took me to the course so often when I was young and suffered through my learning of the game. It was the greatest "gift" he left me. A life and many lives later due to the introduction of the great game of golf.
 
 
 
 
Whether you are the child, or the parent, please come Caddy For A Cure with us. It is the ultimate in gifts that you will never forget. Yes, you will see some great golf up close and personal...but more importantly, you will see memories right before you that will live forever.

Don't mind me wearing sunglasses all day in the meantime.

Very Respectfully,

Russ and Colleen Holden
