Michael and I wax lyrical daily about the amazing kindness we encounter along our journey. That's because it's overwhelming and because, really, if there's "a story" in all of this - this whacky adventure that is puregolf2010 - it's the story of human generosity. Of the innate goodwill within the golf community. And further, within humanity. I never cease to be amazed at the lengths people will go to to help us out - even when we insist that they don't!
Given people help us in multifarious ways - whether it be with a game of golf, with accommodation, or whatever - it's somewhat awkward to single folk out. However in this case we'd like to make special mention of a few men and women that have helped us out in one particular way: by giving us a few bucks to stick in our back pocket to keep this show on the road.
As most of you know, we're funding this trip by ourselves, on the smell of an oily rag. We certainly don't solicit donations to our own coffers - donations to The First Tee are quite separate - but when people have been kind enough to chuck a note our way we're compelled in the circumstances to accept. With an embarassed smile and a firm handshake. And with a heartfelt promise to return the favour when we can down the road.
Below are snaps of people that have been kind enough to help finance puregolf2010 of late. On behalf of Michael and me, a sincere thank you.
