The season starts for me next week and I wanted to write a special blog and introduce the names of the kids on my golf bag. As you all know I'm a advocate for autism and I really love raising awareness for families who need a voice. This year I added the names to my golf bag of a few kids that I have had the chance to meet and let me tell you, they are some of the most amazing kids I have ever met. Elijah my nephew is doing really well in school and graduates this year and I will be there to watch him walk across the stage and receive his diploma! Myiesha, my niece is also doing well in school and I look forward to seeing her as well. Trey Brand is a very talented young man who is an outstanding bowler and I had the honor of meeting him last summer when the mayor honored him with his very own day! Jacqueline Lea Bradshaw is another great young person who I met last summer in Springfield,MO. Owen Dunagan is a bright young man who I had the opportunity to take to the driving range and chat with and I loved it! These kids are talented, beautiful and leaders! They along with the other 1 in 68 kids on the spectrum is why I do what I do. Golf has allowed me to create this huge forum to let folks know that autism just doesn't come and go in April. It's everyday and the parents do a tremendous job of raising their amazing kids. autism affects 1 in 68 kids, but we all know that the number is way bigger than that. Together we can make a difference. I'm honored to represent the autism community and look forward to making this season a special one. Trey, Elijah, Myiesha, Owen, Jacqueline, and the entire 1 in 68, I love you and will always fight hard for you. I look forward to seeing you all this summer!!
