And the winner is…Clarkie!

Remember when we asked you over and over (and over and over and over and over and over) again to vote for our buddy Clarkie in the Transamerica Trick Shot Contest?

Well, you all clearly voted, and after the contest’s judges took a few weeks to discuss the top videos, we got the word this week:

CLARKIE WON!

And so now, in a few weeks, Clarkie and his family will get to enjoy an all-expenses-paid trip to Boston for a pretty spectacular round of golf, which will include not only the legendary Tom Watson, but the reigning Champion Golfer of the Year, Zach Johnson, who recently won the 2015 Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

It is with our sincere gratitude that we thank each and every one of you who took the time to watch Clarkie’s video, to vote for him and to share the many posts promoting the contest. He received the most votes in a national contest and more people on Facebook commented about Clarkie’s video than any other.

What a great day this is.
