#RyderBelindo - Spanish Golf Scribe Strives to Live Ryder Cup Dream

Fifty gargantuan golf balls... each embellished by an area artist... will be on display in Chicago for the coming month as part of Tartan Art on the Avenue, an outdoor art exhibit celebrating the 2012 Ryder Cup. They'll rest on imaginary fairways along North Michigan Avenue, and around the windy city, greeting golfers and fans in town for the biennial competition that's been called, golf's greatest event.

Meanwhile, a few thousand miles away in Pamplona, Spain, David Lopez Amezqueta is counting down the days and revving up the efforts. Amezqueta, who many of us know by his pen name, Mike Belindo, has transformed an unbridled passion for golf... and some stellar social media skills... into a campaign to achieve his ultimate golf goal: David hopes to be in Chicago... at Medinah, to be exact... for the 2012 Ryder Cup, providing the kind of uniquely creative, multi-faceted coverage he's known for.

The 40-something Spaniard, with an infectious smile and perpetually tousled mane, has worked tirelessly over the past several years to promote the inclusive, engaging, enjoyable side of golf... the one that squelches traditional stereotypes.  An admitted handicap alto (high handicap golfer), with an unwavering respect for the game and its history... and an obvious appreciation for the 19th hole... David is like many of of us; he works on his game, enjoys his outings and never looses sight of that one shot.  Like many of us, he's hooked on a game he'll probably possibly never get good at.
