Norm Olsen

My name is Norm Olsen and like most of us hikers I am obsessed with the game of golf. I was born and raised in Chicago and introduced to the sport by my father at the age of 8. Since then I have spent countless hours attempting to master this crazy and at times frustrating game. Although my handicap has been on a gradual incline since high school, I am privileged to have met many outstanding people along the way. Six years ago I was introduced to Jim Colton, the founder of the Hundred Hole Hike. Jim has provided all of us hikers with the opportunity to do what we love most and support a special cause during the process. Playing and walking 108 holes of golf in one day. That’s 30+ miles, 480+ shots, 15+ hours of continuous activity and a whole bunch of blisters, aches and pains. Sounds crazy doesn't it? Well this summer I am going to attempt to complete my 3rd Hundred Hole Hike since 2012 and my main motivation is to raise as much money as possible for a cause that means very much to me: The Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund.
MY GOAL IS TO PLAY 108 HOLES

117 Holes in the Books

I wanted to post a quick recap of Monday’s hundred hole hike.

144 Holes, Why Not?

So I've decided to make the Hundred Hole Hike even more arduous than it already is by raising my goal from 108 holes to 144 holes.

108 Holes Later

I have officially completed the Hundred Hole Hike and am proud to announce that I achieved my goal of walking 108 holes in 1 day!

Training/Prep Update

I am getting a late start at the HHH training/preparation but from here on its go time. The first few days of HHH preparation have been quite a success.
