I think it's very respectful of you to put your wife in the superior postion -- requiring Paulina to get along with her rather than requiring your wife to get along with Paulina. I hope your wife fully understands what a great husband you are!

I know that our trip hasn't started yet, but I thought I'd share with all who might be interested that the experience itself has very much started already.
For instance, Hip Check's having launched this thread was a nice thing, as are the many congratulatory posts above.
The people from Tmag and GolfWRX who have been in touch with we winners while we avidly anticipate our trip have been very gracious -- as have previous contest winners. A real nice feeling with which to start off!
And it might interest you to know that Carolina Golfer 2, one of my fellow winners, had the fine idea of starting an ongoing private message thread in which we four people who are going could begin to get to know each other, and bounce questions and excited anticipations back and forth.
I guess it might sound silly, after all, what could be bad about winning! But the truth is that for me, the camaraderie that's already started thanks to Carolina's effort has already made this whole thing even more special than it otherwise would be.
Maybe some of you are like me, almost always playing golf for the solo pleasure of trying to meet or occasionally beat your own expectations. I love it. But every now and then I've played with a partner in a tournament, and the experience of having someone on your team is great. Uplifting. (It's so nice to be able to legally ask for and receive advice once in a while!)
Anyway, that partnership feeling has come along with this lovely gift.
Thanks GolfWRX! Thanks Tmag!

And KascoPro has already proven very valuable by giving us the lay of the land as to what to expect and offering to be our official photograher. What a true professional and credit to the PGA he is.
For all previous contest, I have been in their shoes, sincerely congratulating the winners and hoping like heck one day, I'd be lucky enough to be chosen. Well that day has unbelievably come, and I couldn't be happier and I will try my best to share our experiences in a way that the members will enjoy hearing about, and just hope it doesn't come off as passive brags
We'll be in touch all, I'm sure there will be an experience thread set up by either HipCheck or one of us.
Thanks again to the best website there is and the fantastic people at TaylorMade and Adidas.
