Have you considered a schedule of fee-based clinics or lessons? There are so many fans of your form and playing style in this region that I believe many of them would pony up for the chance at learning from you.

I know Henry has made inroads with private lessons, and clinics like the one he did at the Triple C Putting League.

There are certainly players on this site (and in NC/SC) who would pay $20-25/hr for personal instruction, or $10-15 for a clinic, especially if you are sharing your mental game, which many of us admire.

First, it's sad that Discraft isn't just getting MJ to Worlds.

Second, tie-dye MJ polos are a brilliant idea.

C - I would totally be down for a Charlotte-area MJ clinic. Especially if it's sold as a World's fundraiser for MJ. I confess I'm always hoping to run into him on a course around here, but I've only played Hornets a couple of times.

4 - I, too, sent a request to Discraft for Tour discs for MJ. Thanks for posting that link.

Yo MJ, I still have the 2003 USDGC CE Areo you gave me last year for my fundraiser that you can put up for auction. Just let me know, I was going to use it in this year's raffle but I got other stuff too.

Luckless, I think based on these 2 responses people have gotten from sending Discraft email, the money MJ is raising isn't going to be the only way he gets there. Discraft has heard. Whether we get MJ branded discs is a different question.

Have no fear I think MJ is a great guy and after I seen his post about world's fundraising on Facebook I had decided to do something for him. Your support for MJ and Discraft is greatly appreciated.

You know, I think one of the other more loved figures here on DGCR is Mike C. Imagine if Mike C and MJ were working together heh. Nothing really Comet-esque from MVP tho. Both of them are great examples of grassroots support from fans.

Hey MJ, any chance of that In the Bag video? I bet I and a lot of other people would love a series of videos, talking about your technique, giving tips on different sorts of things. Whether it's you making your own vids ala Mike C or Discraft deciding to make some new technique videos and tapping you to do a few of them, either works. Oh and yes, if I lived down in NC, I would definitely be down for those clinics and/or lessons others mentioned.
