Canadian Tour Veteran Parlays Unprecedented Winnings into Purchase of Super Size Meal at Wendy's

Canadian Tour Veteran Parlays Unprecedented Winnings into Purchase of Super Size Meal at Wendy's
The Vancouver Wendy's where Chippy Chippleton made his now-famous purchase

38 year-old Hal "Chippy" Chippleton, a 13-year veteran of the Canadian golf Tour, purchased a super size meal at a Vancouver area Wendy's franchise yesterday.

Buoyed by his $27 dollar (Canadian) check for his 53rd place finish at the Vancouver Open last week, Chippleton decided to "treat himself" by purchasing an extra large cola beverage and order of french fries when ordering a Mountain of Meat combo, a favorite amongst Canadian Tour athletes.

"In my 13 years on the Canadian Tour, $27 dollars is the biggest check I've ever received," said an elated Chippleton as he patted his posterior in the general area where his wallet is normally located.

"It's not every day you're at Wendy's and the old billfold has a little extra padding."


Added the 16th place finisher in the 1984 Mississippi State Amateur Championship, "I reckon it would be remiss of me to forget to extend my thanks to Mr. (Bruce) Paiement, the Canadian Tour commissioner, for securing the big name sponsors and record purses this season. Things have never been better for the Canadian Tour."

Reached for comment, Paiement said he was "extremely proud of Chippy," calling him "just one of the many rising stars" on the Canadian Tour.

Staff at the Wendy's outlet frequented by the golfer were said to be extremely surprised with his decision.

Counter attendant Amanda Steeple, who served Chippleton his super size purchase, recognized the golf pro from his visits to the restaurant each of the previous four days.

"There was certainly a change in his demeanor when he walked in this evening. Normally, he'd come in looking kinda sheepish, slouching, shrunken shoulders, and he'd be counting out the $5.31 for his meal on the counter, paying mostly with nickels and dimes."

"But tonight, he handed me a fresh, crisp 10 dollar bill. He actually took the time to tell me that he had just won big, and he was going to "live it up,"" described Steeple.

"There was nothing impulsive about this. It was obvious that this was a planned, calculated purchase."

His greatest success behind him, the Alabama native who sleeps in the back of his 1981 Chevrolet Chevette during the golf season is already looking to the future. "I'm getting closer and closer to the dream. After this breakthrough, I think I'm ready to take it to the next level-y'all are gonna be seein' a whole lot more of ole Chippy……Bring on the big time, baby."

"Y'know, hitting the $500 mark in winnings this year might not even be out of the question! Just wait till I tell the kids and rub it in the ex-wife's face," gushed Chippleton.

"Who's the loser now, Diane?"

Depending on the outcome of this weekend's Alberta Open in Calgary, Chippleton has not ruled out splurging on a celebratory post-tournament trip to Denny's.
