Mick Fleetwood Sighting: Duluthian PGA Volunteer sits and Chats with Mick

Published by @Nickslive for Fleetwood Mac News and Reviews
This past Tuesday, Mick Fleetwood was spotted at LAX a couple of times first in the terminal, then on the flight over to Hawaii.  Here are a couple of Tweets:
Turns out he sat next to PGA Golf Volunteer Brad Ballantine.  Here's a snippet of the article in the Duluth News Tribune where Brad was interviewed and talks about his encounter with Mick.

Duluthian gets ‘chance of a lifetime’ as PGA volunteer
Brad Ballantine must have thought he was dreaming Tuesday.

The avid Duluth golfer was bound for Hawaii for the PGA’s season-opening Tournament of Champions, where he will work for the first time as a volunteer, and sitting next to him on his flight was Mick Fleetwood.

That would be drummer Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac.

“Mick and I had a nice chat on the way over here, and when we left he said, ‘Good luck with your golf tournament. That’s really cool,’” Ballantine said.

If Mick Fleetwood thinks what you’re doing is really cool, it’s really cool.

“Mick came across as a very nice guy. It was awesome. I don’t know what to tell you. I get goose bumps just thinking about it. He’s a golf nut. He has an estate here not far from the course. I was hoping for an invite, but I didn’t get one.”
