Bob I just finished the article on Jim ” Bones ” Mackay, thanks for giving us a peak at the life from the ” Second Player ” attempting to win. I loved the part where Synovus Bank offered him a position and the CEO still ask’s him years later when he is coming to work. I don’t golf very well but enjoy watching it on TV. For Mr. Mackay to leave a guaranteed salary to do what he love’s is confidence at its best. I wish him well and I will be watching for future articles from you.
