Dear Donald Trump: Help make Luke Swilor's golf dreams a reality
Being a good blogger is like being good at oral sex. Sure, it’s something that gives you pride, but so few people are aware of your skills.
Which explains why so many bloggers are forced to find other means of employment. Chris Baldwin, for instance, works in manure factory as a taster. Heather McMichael reads to the blind. We all do what we can to get by, so that we may continue our blogging ways.
I recently spoke with Swilor for a TravelGolf.com article (find it here), and found him to be a charming guy who’s doing his best to succeed in the family business (dad Milan Swilor is a longtime pro). It’s a tough road to the PGA Tour, but at 24, Swilor is enjoying beating the bushes at tournaments in places like Needles, Calif.
The struggle for Swilor is to have enough money to enter many good events. Last year, he was forced to bypass Q-School because he didn’t have the $4,000 needed for the entry fee. And I believe it’s time to fix that problem.
This is why I’m coming out today to ask one of our readers – Donald Trump – to sponsor young Luke.
Mr. Trump, this is the perfect opportunity for you to help a young golfer who’s just trying to make his place in the world. All he needs is a little seed money. Say $25,000. C’mon, you have that in your money clip right now. You own dogs that cost more than that.
For this pittance, Mr. Trump, you will give Swilor an opportunity of a lifetime. And you’ll look extremely cool in the process. Because, let’s face it, this has “Disney Movie” written all over it. When Luke qualifies for the PGA Tour, wearing an “Apprentice” hat, can you imagine the excitement? I can. I can even see the movie title in my head:
The Donald’s Song: The Luke Swilor Story
And if I may be so bold, I believe the role of Luke Swilor would be perfect for Haley Joel Osment. Obviously, Mr. Trump, you would be allowed to portray yourself, while I will be played by Halle Berry, in order to help the movie cross racial and gender barriers.
Aside from the accolades and the blockbuster movie, I’m also pretty sure that if you sponsor Swilor, he’ll wear any promotional clothing you want. He’s from Utah, you know. We could have him head-to-toe in Trump garb, and he’ll be cool with it.
Mr. Trump, Luke Swilor is fighting for his dream, but right now, The Man is working to keep the blogger down. You can unlock his dreams. And look fantastically cool in doing so. We await your response.
Face it, Haley Joel Osment could
use a break these days, as well.

Don't get me wrong, with that new picture of his, he is a dazzler, but ...
