Hello, world!

I am ecstatic to be participating in the Hundred Hole Hike in an effort to raise money for the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Foundation. I took a "shoot first, aim later" approach when quickly deciding to sign up for this event. Ironically, that is probably going to be the same approach I need to take on June 17th in order to get 108 holes of golf in during one day!

Why I am doing this? Well, quite simply, I believe strongly in the mission of DMSF and think I can raise significant dollars to their cause. DMSF provides scholar assistance to underprivileged high school students in Chicago. For many of these scholars, it is the first time in their lives that they are challenged academically. But more than purely academics, DMSF provides the tools in which scholars can excel socially, too. For example, DMSF has an excellent caddie program which allows scholars to caddie at a local country club during the summer. As a former caddie myself, I know there is no better job at honing real life skills. I caddied eight years with DMSF scholars, and as a result, have always closely linked the game of golf with DMSF. When I signed up for the Hundred Hole Hike, I knew right away this was the organization I wanted to raise money for.
