Golfing for… you

Posted on: 06/10/08 12:02 PM | by Jonathan McKee

Yesterday I went golfing for you.

Seriously… I did. Every year we have one large fund raiser that helps us raise funds to keep the resources free for youth workers on our web site. This fund raiser is a golf marathon… three rounds of golf in one day. Golfers raise $1,000 each to play. We raised a bunch of money for our ministry… and boy did we haveĀ blast.

I’m not much of a golfer. This was only my second time playing this year. I have never broken 100 (for those of you that don’t golf, breaking 100 is a huge deal for golfers. It seperates the men from the boys. It’s when your score is under 100… on a typical par 72 course that means you have to average less then “two shots over par,” also known as double bogey, each hole. I am a double bogey golfer which means I usually shoot about a 108).

Yesterday on one of the rounds I shot a 50 on the front 9. Yes, that means that I could taste “breaking 100.” Unfortunately I fell apart on the back nine and shot a 59!

Yes… my legacy as a double bogey golfer lives on!

  1. Jonathan,
    I feel your pain. I gave up golf this year after about 8 years of only playing once a year (suspiciously the same number of years that I’ve had kids). This year I’ve decided that I’m not going to pay money to make myself mad. So, know that I really appreciate the sacrifice that you made playing golf for me and so many other ministers. I promote your site, podcast, blog and books every chance I get to youth workers where ever I go.
