And the Winner Is...

The hubby - just an inch away from a hole in one.

But hey, at least he won the tournament!

 Of course, there was a small price to pay.

You've heard of the Master tourney's green jacket, right?

Well, my hubby's tournament has a jacket, too...a "special" red one.

 I think you can spot it on my man (a little right of center) in the chapel.

 You see, the prize comes with a penalty.

You have to wear it to church the first Sunday after winning!

Please note that the loverly patch boasts three stars, 
not all of which you can see in the last picture.
These were added by Ada, one of the "proud" wives.
(The jacket itself was purchased at a thrift local store.)

Ahhh, sweet victory!

He is actually embarrassed to wear the jacket, but proud to have won it. (It is not the most attractive thing you will ever see...)

;)

Yay for the red jacket.

Ha ha! That's the best kind of tourney, where the winner wins and gets the prize, but the losers feel good too because the prize is a wee bit embarrassing.

Congrats to Dave! Winners are usually people with courage, conviction, smarts, (luck), and great style. I think it took great style, courage, conviction, smarts and luck to wear that lovely coat to Church! He dah Man!

Oh that is just so adorable! Your hubby has a heart of gold, or better yet a golden spirit to follow through with that really, really RED jacket! Some people really love red though!!!

Too cute!

Caroline said...

That is SO great! Hooray for Dave! And that's too cute that he had to wear the bright red jacket to church!! I love it!

Looks like Dave is enjoying retirement as he should be! Winning tournaments and all!

Darlene said...

That is priceless. I can't believe he was inches away from a hole in one. Has he ever made one before?

I think this is a great thing for the winner to have to do. Wearing an unfitted fairly discusting jacket is a beautiful award(punishment?) for having won.

Cheryl said...

That's hysterical! A hole in one would have been truly amazing. My short game is, in a word, tiring.
