Slim Whitman Invitational
2006 Champ - Eric Nichols
WOW, SLIM CHAMP OF 2006 !!!!
I realize it's taken nine months to get this letter out, But that's hoe long it's
taken for me to get over the shock and disbelief of winning the Slim. This is
definitely a dream come true. Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of this. Most
kids would dream of hitting the home run that would win the WORLD
SERIES or maybe make the free throw to win the NBA FINALS, but not me. I
would stand over a four foot putt in my backyard and think " if I sink this, I
could win the Slim!! " To think 30 some years later, my dream has come
HOW HAS THIS CHANGE ME? Well I'm still the same old whore hound you
know and love. I must say though, the title has had a great effect on the
ladies. Now wherever I go, that green jacket attracts the women like bees to
honey. I see why everyone wants to a Slim Champ! My life has been so
much easier with business, life & family, my children are so proud of me. My
son can't to get out there to keep the tradition going.
I'd like to thank many of the people responsible for my championship, especially the HC. First, for organizing this tremendous tournament! And secondly,
forgiving me a fair handicap that allowed me to compete with some of the best golfers in the world.
I'd also like to thank every past champion of this prestigious event for if it wasn't for them winning before. I'm sure their handicap would have had them winning
instead of me.
I'd also like to thank all my Illinois Brethren especially Dickie duo and the dont's, my bitch little Bruce & tin cup, for living up to his new nickname.
And lastly, I'd like to thank my playing partner's on the final round. If it wasn't for them not making me drink ( Rick Miller ), I mean encouraging me to victory, I
wouldn't be champion today.
The Slim music is playing so I guess it's time for me to grab my sticks and start practicing for the 2007 tournament. I know the HC will be fair and just in
whatever handicap they stow upon me. Thank You all, God bless and see you all at the Golden Sands.
