Caddyshack 30th Anniversary Contest Winners

In case you missed it, this is the announcement for the Caddyshack 30th Anniversary Blu-ray release contest. And just in case, if you’ve never seen the movie, I should mention that there are spoilers in this post (if it’s even possible to spoil a movie like this). I wasn’t sure it would happen, but all three of my favorite quotes were identified. And, they were identified by three different people. That means that we have three automatic winners and the remaining two copies will be awarded by drawing among the other three entries. Before we get down to business, let’s take a look at my favorite three quotes. I’d be lying if I said it was an easy choice.

Note: this contest is now closed. Winners will be notified by e-mail and a post will be published shortly. Is there an adult golfer alive who hasn’t seen Caddyshack? It’s hard to even believe it’s possible, but if you know anyone who fits the bill, it’s time to get them a copy, stat. For the rest of us, this movie is nothing short of classic. Now, Warner Brothers has finally brought Caddyshack to Blu-ray with the 30th anniversary release.  It contains not only the film, but a feature-length behind-the-scenes 30th anniversary documentary as well as a retrospective documentary filled with outtakes, interviews, and rare footage. Visit the Caddyshack 30th Anniversary Blu-ray release website for complete details. The good news is that Caddyshack is available on Blu-ray, but the better news is that I have five copies to give away and I love having a fun contest. The Contest I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen Caddyshack countless times.  On top of that, I’m a big movie quotes guy and have been known to throw

We  made it!  Here we are on the fourth and final day of the Big May Golf Book Giveaway. We’ve come a long way and now here we are on the last giveaway (for now!). The book today is Moment of Glory: The Year Underdogs Ruled Golf, by John Feinstein.  Moment of Glory takes a close look at the 2003 season, specifically the four majors, where a group of unlikely underdogs took advantage of Tiger Woods’ down season. Here’s some information from the book’s publisher, Hachette Book Group: After winning 6 of the 12 Majors from 2000 to 2002, Tiger Woods struggled in 2003. Four unknown players would seize the day, rising to become champions in his wake. Mike Weir–considered a good golfer but not a great one–triumphed in The Masters, becoming the first Canadian to win a Major. Jim Furyk emerged
