When Is A Timeshare Worth $1.4 Million? Just Ask Luke Donald, 2006 Honda Classic Champion
March 23, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsTimeshares may be a great way to vacation, but they rarely turn out to be a good investment for financial return. However the parents of PGA Tour winner, Luke Donald, might justifiably think otherwise.
The twenty-eight-year-old golfer has two PGA Tour wins to his name, the 2002 Southern Farm Bureau Classic, and as of last week, The Honda Classic. His win resume also includes the 2004 Scandinavian Masters, the 2004 Omega European Masters, and the 2004 WGC World Cup. The last week of March approaches, and Donald has already racked up a cool $1.4 million in earning from this year’s US PGA Tour play alone.
But young Luke, could have been a budding cricket or rugby star, had it not been for the fact that his parents purchased a timeshare. The family’s timeshare in southern Spain offered free golfing privileges on the resort course, so Luke, then eight years old, picked up a driver and the rest, as they say, is history.
Veteran golfer, Bobby Cole, a lifetime member of the PGA Tour and winner of over twenty professional tournaments worldwide says, “Luke Donald is probably just coming into his game. With his sound fundamentals, there is no telling how many more events he may win over his career. And you just never know, if he hadn’t had the opportunity to play at a young age, he might have bypassed golf entirely in favor of other sports or his talents as an artist.”
Sell My Timeshare Now, LLC, CEO Jason Tremblay offers this additional insight, with a smile, "It is well known that timeshares are currently a buyers' market. Every day, we counsel people never to expect financial return on a timeshare purchase. Because of Mr. Donald and his family, however, we might have to acknowledge one exception to this rule.”
