Every day is a blessing when I am surrounded by friends, old and new, enjoying this crazy stupid game we all love.

I didn't grow up with the game, yet my passion for it came at a remarkably odd time.

During my summer between my sophomore and junior year of college, I mysteriously lost 70lbs. After months of testing, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma.

I won't bore you with the details, but over the past 20+ years, I have remained healthy and have put back all of the weight.

My love for golf was forged during that year. One part physical and fifty parts psychological, golf has given me so much.

When I reflect on being sick, I am still amazed at how much golf played a part in my recovery. The excitement of walking to the first tee got me up in the morning, even when my body was completely overwhelmed by the treatment.

I am playing this 100 hole hike to support the Leukemia Lymphoma Society with my good buddy Matt. Matt was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma about a year ago. I promised him if he felt up to it, I would be honored to do the hike again with him.

Thankfully Matt is doing great and we are set to walk 100 holes of golf this May 15th.

It is a long and brutal day, just like the disease.

Fuck Cancer right in the motherfucking ear!

Your donation will hopefully go to help someone out there dealing with Leukemia or Lymphoma.

Wish us luck!
