Happy New Year!!
Well it's a new year for all of us and that means setting goals and seeing them through. I'm really excited about the upcoming golf season. I'm really working hard in the gym getting my body ready for a busy playing schedule. I will be traveling back to Las Vegas and for the first time playing in Florida! I will play in 12 events and for me that a ton. My game is still in the process of getting better. I really feel like I found something in my new swing towards the end of last season and I want to build on that. I have a few pieces of new equipment in my bag that I'm excited about. I tested some putters and will go back to the bladed putter with the hopes of it giving me a little more balance. At the moment, I'm testing a new Nike ball and if all goes well, I will put it in play this season. I haven't hit a golf ball since August so there will be tons of rust, but that's what I love about golf, you really have to practice hard in order to get the results you want. I love to practice!
My nonprofit organization TeamWinfrey is really picking up steam, and this year we will partner with BrightMont Academy and introduce the TeamWinfrey Scholarship to students with autism which will help them receive the teaching necessary to graduate High School. I'm really pumped about that and I hope you all help us by donating to this wonderful cause. We hope to give at least two scholarships per year and if all goes well with our fundraising efforts, we may be able to give more. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to partner with this great school. We will also reach out more in the community to help others. Using golf as my platform has been a blessing and I've really met some classy people who want to help or just simply tell me their story. I hope to continue to meet more golfers who want to help make change.
My radio show Talkin Live with Eli is really doing well!! I've had some great folks on my show and it's been a honor to listen and share stories about autism. I owe Brenda Bradshaw, Amber Cassidy, Muse Watson, Jan Luck, Marcia Hinds, & Matthew Laurance a huge thank you for being guests on my show. The show will be ending in January, but it will be back hopefully in the summer with episodes scattered around, and that's because of my golf schedule. I want to thank you all for the tremendous support you've shown me! All podcasts of the show are on our TeamWinfrey website or you can go to blogtalkradio.com and type in Talkin Live with Eli and listen there.
In closing I want to thank you all for taking the time to check out my website. I really appreciate it. Remember to dream big and push yourself to be better and do better this year. Help as many people as you can and don't think about receiving anything. Take care and I'll catch up with you next month!
