Nice fanboy post.
Considering Arg is not giving In Gee a gift at the KPMG (I think he's still mad that she threw away the hand made Dumbo head cover at O'Hare airport...yet she uses a Dumbo head cover that a Taiwanese guy gave her) you should get your artist friend to do something special for In Gee...she'll be over the moon.
I never paid much attention to Sandra previously...but in 2013...bravedave said we should go watch her play and then realized how nice she is.
I agree with your idea, KBong! I really wanted to do a drawing for In Gee because she is so fan friendly, going so far as to give my buddy a pic of her, one where she was carrying the Olympic torch, but he didn't think it would make for a good pencil drawing. So, while I won't have one for her this year, I'm hopeful of finding subject matter to do one next year. Plus, while not over the top expensive, it does add up and I'm still saving for my trip to Ireland (already have tee times at Royal County Down, Royal Portrush and Carne) this September. Any thoughts/pics that you think would make for a nice drawing for In Gee?
Agreed, Sandra is a sweetheart of a person.
Your Ireland trip sounds awesome.
I don't know if you have consider this.
Are the drawings you give the LPGA pros on paper or cardboard?
Don't forget....these gals do a lot of packing to go from event to event...so for them to take your gifts and get them home might be troublesome without them getting ruined.....have you considered giving the drawings in a drafting tube so they can roll it up to put into their luggage.
I'd suggest you give a gift that is small and easy for any pro to pack and take home.
If you want to stick with a drawing...I'd get your friend to do a 6" x 4" drawing of In Gee with the USWO trophy and frame it...frames are cheap and have it in a box....so it's no trouble for In Gee to pack and to put it up in her house if she chooses to do so.
That's why Arg's Blackhawks ball maker gift to Hee Young is ideal....it's small.
But as much as I make fun that In Gee might have thrown away Arg's Dumbo head cover....it might be true because it might have been a pain to get it home....and for a pro like In Gee...she gets a ton of gifts from fans...so I wouldn't be surprised if she has threwn away a lot of gifts....I know no one wants to hear it....but it might be reality.....see below a pic of In Gee from the ANA and all the gifts she got...the girl has a lot of fanboys.....I assume she asked her billet host to help her box the gifts and to ship them home.
I know it's not as personal...but I might just buy some Korean snacks/candy that In Gee likes....I assume you live near Chitown and there are some Korean grocery stores....I've seen quite a few Korean fans hand the Korean pros snacks in between holes at events.
I assume you are the Meijer all week....have you ever chatted with Kylie Pratt...short blonde hair gal that's not hard to pick out of the crowd following In Gee...she use to be Hee Young Park's loop and now In Gee's road manager...she might be able to give you some ideas...but I believe her response would be that a gift is not necessary.
