Hello, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! I just wanted to take a minute to extend my very best wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season and Happy new Year. It has been another wonderful year for me walking each and every PGA TOUR event. I can't wait to get back to it at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii just after New Year's. Kapalua is, without question, the toughest course I walk all year, but it also serves as a great reminder of how blessed and fortunate I am to have the opportunities I do. It is the start of a new calendar year on the PGA TOUR, which means there are so many chances for me to raise money for the kids.

As I settle in at home for a few weeks, I look back on 2016 with a great feeling of warmth and gratitude. Everywhere I went, people like you were incredibly supportive and friendly. The conversations, interactions, walks, etc. all mean so much to me. When I am around people like you, I get an extra-special feeling that what I do is making not just a financial impact, but a mental and motivational one, as well.

I would say the one piece of advice I give more than any other is to always, always, always follow your dreams. You might get discouraged at times and even get the feeling that others don't think you can do it, but ALL of that is meaningless. Get it in your heart and head that you can do anything you put your mind to! Don't take "No" for an answer and don't allow yourself to settle for anything less than everything you desire!

To me, Christmas time is about hope and belief. It is a perfect time to reflect on how far I have come since doctors told my parents I would never walk. I obviously proved doctors wrong. Not everything will go your way all of the time. But, you take what you have and what you think you can have and make it happen!

Each day is a new day and each step is a new step. We all eventually get to where we want to be with a fire in our heart.

With that, thank you, again, for all the love and support. You have been so very instrumental in making all of this possible and wonderful for me. You're every bit a part of my journey to me as anything.

I wish you all a safe and happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!!

See you down the road.
