ALAN SHIPNUCK, SENIOR GOLF WRITER / SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, TO SPEAK TO THE STILLWATER CLUB (RAIN-CHECKED AND NOW LIVE on ZOOM),
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29TH @ 1:00 PM
The PGA Championship is complete… The Masters approaches. The August fires in the Valley have been squashed and Alan Shipnuck and his family have repatriated to their home and he is again rarin’ to address the members of The Stillwater Club. Hey, that’s us!
Alan Shipnuck — a local (Carmel) prodigy -- wrote his first Sports Illustrated cover story in 1994, as a 21-year-old intern. Upon graduating from UCLA in 1996, he became one of the youngest staff writers in the magazine's history. Now a senior writer, Shipnuck writes regularly on golf. He is the author, with Christina Kim, of Swinging from My Heels: Confessions of an LPGA Star, as well as The Battle for Augusta National and Bud, Sweat & Tees, a national best-seller.
Because we hope for and anticipate a goodly “turn out,” you now - or later if you choose - have the opportunity to submit questions for Alan in advance; and we may have time on the fly, as well. These will be gathered and asked of Mr. Shipnuck by your program chair and nowadays zoom host who you’ll just have to trust to get it right. More to the point, Alan is a wonderfully engaging, make that riveting speaker on the game — and the players — of professional golf. You will be glad you “attended,” however virtually. There is no charge for lunch, in fact none is provided — so bring your own if you wish, even crunchy chips —> Your host controls the mute button.
Your fellow member Jeff Froke is inviting you to a previously rain-checked and rescheduled Zoom meeting that still promises to be a lot of fun. Send an RSVP and your questions for Alan, plus any procedural questions for Jeff to him at —- firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 831-224-8595.
