I worked for a company in Kansas City for a number of years, called Valley Foodservice --in the 80's and we serviced about 400 Wendy's restaurants. Dave Thomas (Wendy's Founder) and my personal mentor, had this golf bag and custom golf clubs donated -he told me- from the President (Robert Goizueta) of Coke at the time, for the Wendy's Three Tour Challenge, to benefit adoption. It turns out that my boss at the time, bought this bag and clubs and gave them me at the celebrity auction, and I am NOT an avid golfer. These new clubs and COKE golf bag, have been sitting in my garage since around 1991, and were last touched the year that Dave died. Wendy and I spoke of them while at Dave's funeral. That is another story. Clubs and bag are Brand new, virtually never used. Turns out, this may be a pretty unique and somewhat hard to come by item. Not understanding the value, I was going to trade them in at a sporting goods store for 50 bucks for some scuba equipment, when the fellow that owns our company said, I should not do that, as these had much more value and I should research this a bit before I parted with the set and the bag.
