Yes I am on here! Ive been a fan since around 1983, thanks to my brother.

My wife and I are still in shock...never in a million years expected to be selected.  This is most definitely a bucket list item to remember forever.  We still haven’t gotten all the details of when this will happen.   Hopefully, we will be able to hold it together and have a normal conversation without seeming too starstruck.   Thanks for the well wishes!

Thanks for sharing!  I have had many dreams of random social interactions with various members of the band -- yours was actually true!  That's so lovely to hear about them, how they were into it. I have never, ever heard any reports of any of the 4 of them being rude to fans. They are just such genuinely nice men, in addition to being blindingly talented/hardworking.  Did someone set up the course outside the venue, or did you meet at an actual mini golf place?  Can't wait for the pic or two.  Good for you for not spending the night taking pics, but just experiencing it.  

Did you finish the game?? Who won???? LOL

They had a private area set up backstage with a couple of “putting greens” and food and drinks.   It was great.

 

We played both holes.  Bono made sure we played both and was making sure of everyone’s score. It was pretty funny.  Techincally, Edge won!

Ah, that makes sense. Backstage.  I love that Bono was making sure of everyone's score. He seems so hilarious.  And I find it funny that Larry didn't play - I think I remember him saying in some interviews that he would never, ever play golf. Maybe he meant it?

Sounds amazing! It would have been a hoot to have them at one of those mega mini-putt places-- the kind with the pirate ship and all! But I'm positive their time is pretty budgeted right now. Glad the guys were into doing it.
I guess Larry is really sticking to that "No golf" rule! I knew he was hardcore LOL

Thanks for sharing your story. Great to hear that a couple of true fans got to enjoy this great experience. You’re the kind of folks I always hope win those Omaze contests.

These are the two pics I have.  The group shot and then the one I took of my wife and Bono.  When I get the ones from the photographer  I will post if I’m allowed to.     This was so awesome...can’t stop smiling!

I love the group shot - the way Bono is standing, looks like he thinks he won the game!
