Nike Custom Fit trip Winner Richard D from Dayville, CT got the "Tour Star" treatment from the staff at Nike! Here is his post!
I want to thank everyone associated with making my trip out
to Nike the most enjoyable and carefree event that I have ever experienced.
From the Congratulatory and Welcoming message I received
from Neal Feldman (Carls Golfland) to my final ”Goodbye” to Tim W, everyone has
gone out of their way to ensure a pleasant, successful, and totally awesome
event. I never knew so many special
experiences could be had in a day and a half!!
Robin H did everything possible to make sure that I had the
experience of a lifetime! Our
conversations were geared to the Professionalism, Dedication, and World Class
culture of Nike, and it's employees.
Robin really impressed me with her Knowledge, Dedication and Social
Skills necessary to provide the Marketing expertise for this extremely well-run
Golf Division. Robin is one of the most
energetic, dynamic and dedicated people I am proud to know. Thank you, Robin, for making all of this
A special thanks to Aimee G, who was especially responsible
to insure that I had the total Nike experience.
Wow...did I!! Some of the items
were: Gift Packs, Shopping at the Nike
store, Introductions, Meals, Discussions, etc.
Aimee is one of the most pro-active people I've ever met. Thank you, Aimee, I will always associate
Nike with your personality!
Tafena T is going places!
What a talent! I could tell from
our first “Hello” that this lady typifies the Recruiting, Training, and Placement
of Nike employees. Tafena showed me, and
told me things about Nike, that I would never have thought possible! I even know the story about the “duck”
(Afflack). I wish her continued success
in her endeavors.
Now, let me tell you about dinner with these three wonderful
women - Robin, Tafena, and Aimee. Oops, maybe I'd better not! Let me just say that the conversations
covered subjects from Britney, Children and Grandchildren, to Food Preparation -
and lots in-between! Times like this are
meaningful and create a lasting impression!
I golfed with Marshall B, Tim W, and Anh N at Pumpkin Ridge
Country Club. Now, since I hadn't picked
up a club in over 5 years (Shoulder, Knees, Elbow - I forgot which excuse I
used!), I knew that I was not going to show any prowess on the course! And I certainly did not. But, let me tell you, I never met three
people who were more diplomatic that Tim, Marshall and Anh!! An especially warm “Thank You” to all three
for the enjoyment of being together for golf and lunch.
My experience at the Tigard Facility for the Custom Golf
Club fitting was simply amazing! Tony F
took me around and introduced me to the facility. I feel very lucky to have gone through this
fitting, discussion, and demonstration of golf at its finest! I learned more in this session than at any
other time, from anyone else, ever! A
special thanks to Jeff H for all the time, effort, and skills he put into
working with me on this uplifting experience.
I think you get the drift of my experience at Nike
Golf. I am sure that I missed thanking
some people....please excuse me. I hope
to see everyone again.
Finally, I just want to say that this was one of the
monumental events of my life. To see a
company and its employees who really know the true meaning, inspiration and
working relationship of World Class, is truly amazing. I wish you all continued success in all your
