Walk On...

I was lucky enough to witness first hand last year Jim Colton's 155 hole march around Ballyneal for our friend Ben Cox.

Practice? Are we talking about practice?

I was surprised to learn that others have been or plan to train for this event. Seemed like cheating to me. But after some thought, it seemed almost smart.

Standing on the shoulders...

...of giants.

To whom much is given...

Being a friend of Jim Colton's has its drawbacks. Let's get real here, other than the occasional invite to a great place like Ballyneal, you have to hand it to the guy for making us all look bad.

100? Really?

Of the Kingsley golfers, I may be the least likely to make it all hundred holes. But I'm going to try.

It was a little over a year ago when I first became aware of the effort, the golf marathon, that Jim Colton was going to undertake at Ballyneal as a way to raise money and assist Ben Cox and Ben's

Remembrance of rounds past

I learned the game of golf from my grandfather, a man walked fast and played faster -- both of which will be essential in trying to slog through 100+ holes in a single day.
