Thanks you & Results

Friends & Family,

Thank you for your amazingly generous support of my efforts on behalf of the First Tee of Greater Chicago during the Hundred Hole Hike.

The Hike was Monday (June 18) and with your pledges – (in excess of $7,000!) – I was wholly determined to complete the task.

As is my custom, the golf was thoroughly enjoyable … but wildly inconsistent. Some relevant stats are below:

- Holes – 108
- First Tee Shot – 4:50 am
- Last Putt – 8:30 pm
- Carry / Caddy / Pull Cart – 97 / 11 / 0
- Low Round / High Round – 83 / 101
- Birdies / ‘Snowmen’ – 3 / 5 (not a good ratio … but at least you know I’m honest)
- Best Ball / Worst Ball - 74 / 117
- High Temp – 94 degrees
- High Wind Gust – 45 mph
- Beers – 1 (Miller High Life on Hole 102 … it tasted very good)

Attached is a picture following Hole 108 (with fellow hikers Doug, Sven and Erik) … and I can assure you that I look much better in that photo than I felt at the time.

Thanks again for your wonderful support.
