Look up golf trophies on the web and you’re going to find exactly what you’d expect. Gaudy, plastic, piece of junk golf trophies with tiny gold painted figures on top that are made in China. Until now. I was out to change that when I sculpted the Mulligan golf trophy. The Mulligan was different than my other trophies because I wasn’t sculpting it with solely fantasy sports in mind. Even though there are fantasy golf fans, I knew that this golf trophy needed to cross over into the world of real sports leagues and golf tournaments. Guys would email me saying that they wanted a cool golf trophy to represent their family outing or a yearly tournament at work or with friends. Keeping that in mind, I grabbed some clay and got to work. With every design I first start by asking myself, “What would I want to play for?” From there I feel it’s a lot easier to achieve something that other sports fans would be thrilled to have. After several weeks the Mulligan was finished and I introduced it to the public. He’s gotten rave reviews from fans of FantasyTrophies.com and I can’t tell you how exciting it is when a guy says it’s the perfect trophy to represent his golf tournament, league, or even a hole in one.
See for yourself and tell me what you think.
The Mulligan golf trophy was released about a month ago and, by the early response, he’s definitely going to make his mark on the golf world. I’ve heard from a bunch of fans of FantasyTrophies.com that the Mulligan is the perfect trophy for their golf tournament, skins game, or to commemorate a hole in one. I knew when I was sculpting the Mulligan that I had something pretty special on my hands. One of the things that I do before I sculpt any trophy is to do some studying of the competition and research other trophies on the market. What I realized was that there is a lot of crap out there when it comes to golf trophies. Go ahead and look for yourself. Google search golf trophy and you’ll be amazed with the amount of junk you’ll discover. I knew I wanted something different and a trophy that would really speak to true golf fanatics and +10 handicappers everywhere. The Mulligan I feel is just that. And by what fans have been telling me, I’m not alone.
Father’s Day is right around the corner and people are always searching for great gift ideas for Dad. Socks and ties just don’t cut it anymore. If you want to give dad a gift he’ll no doubt remember, the Mulligan golf trophy is the way to go. If dad is an avid golfer, plays in a tournament with his buddies or a skins game with friends, or has gotten a hole in one; the Mulligan is the perfect gift this year. I mean come on, doesn’t dad deserve something more than the crappy shirt you were thinking of getting him? And don’t even think about purchasing another gift certificate to the restaurant he goes to all the time. It’s time to show dad you actually put some thought into a gift for him this year for Father’s Day. And you can even personalize his trophy by having a plate engraved for him. It’s a no brainer. The only question is do you go for the large or the small version.
The perfect golf gift for dad. That is what people keep telling me the new Mulligan golf trophy can be. I gotta say, now that it’s completed and almost up on the site, I see what they’re talking about. I speak from experience. My father-in-law is a huge golfer and each year my wife and I get him a gift for his birthday or Christmas that has some kind of golf theme to it. Everything from boring collared golf shirts to typical personalized golf balls have been given. This year though I sense it’s going to be different. This year the Mulligan trophy is going to be that golf gift that Dad remembers and doesn’t burry in his closet. Now we just need to think about what I should engrave on the plate.
Over the years I’ve had numerous people ask me if I was ever going to sculpt a golf trophy. Not a trophy that would be specifically designed for fantasy golf, but rather a trophy that could represent their office league or be given as a gift to a lifelong golf fanatic. A trophy that would truly embody the physical demands riding around in a golf cart while drinking a six pack can put on the body. Well, that time has come. Yesterday I started sculpting a golf trophy that all hackers can be proud of.
As you can see, he’ll still have that same “athletic build” you’ve come to expect from all of my trophies. The only difference is he won’t have his classic man slippers on his feet.
Keep checking in- I hope to have it completed in a few weeks.
