Quail Hollow Championship Passes to the FedEx Hospitality Suite

Official Program with Autographs from Ricky Barnes, Rickie Fowler, and Kevin Stadler

Joseph and I had the blessed opportunity to be given "4" passes to attend the Quail Hollow Championship Thursday April 28th with my parents!   Leaving at 7:00 am to catch the Charlotte Lynx and then a shuttle into the Country Club property we arrived at 8:00 ready to watch the first tee times of the morning!  The passes allowed us entry into the FED EX Hospitality Suite, which was at the 18th hole!!!

We spent the whole day there watching the golfers approach the 18th hole.  It was a beautiful Spring day to enjoy with no electronics allowed on the property.  We were able to quickly make friends with the FED EX Hospitality staff and they were gracious enough to alert us personally when three professional golfers were coming to our booth exclusively to sign autographs!  

What a great photo opportunity; however I was not allowed to bring my camera or phone.  One of my new friends, Angela Johnson, with the FED EX staff had her camera, and offered to take photos with the golfers, Mr. North Carolina and my family.  Thank you Angela!

I would like to give special thanks to my new friend Scott Estep of Joe Gibbs Racing for his generosity by giving us the passes.  We were able to spend time with Scott, and get to know him while we watched the golfers.  Hopefully I will get the opportunity to make an appearance on behalf of Joe Gibbs Racing.  

Thanks Scott!
