 Hello, all! It has been a busy time of the year for many people. Before we turn the page into another year, I wanted to wish everyone my best for a safe and Happy New Year.


A few things to update. Over Thanksgiving, I was "thankful" to be in the Bahamas for Tiger's Hero World Challenge event. Not long after that, I traveled to Valdosta, GA to help with The Miracle League of Valdosta. For those not familiar with what The Miracle League does, do yourself a favor this holiday season and spend a few minutes online learning about it. In short, it is an organization that creates sports fields and structures for kids with special needs. You can learn much more about them at miracleleague.com. Last year, the Walking for Kids Foundation was able to donate $15,000 to help with the building of the new baseball facility at the Valdosta location. I was thrilled to be able to go back in early December to provide Miracle League of Valdosta another $10,000 to help with creation of a wheelchair-friendly dugout.


After a grand total of seven falls in 2019 (after each of which I laughed at myself), I will spend Christmas and New Year's at home in Hendersonville, NC with my family. 


So, in a few weeks, I will begin 13th year of doing what I do. It will be the 11th with the Walking for Kids Foundation. NOT including this year's total, I am so happy to have been able to give $850,000 to kids in need. I can't say how long I will keep on walking every round of every PGA TOUR event, but I can't imagine not doing it. I am so grateful to all the people I see week in and week out. I appreciate everyone who stops me to say "Hi." Speaking of "Hi," I will be saying "Hi" to Hawaii shortly after New Year's for the Sentry Tournament of Champions. I'm excited to have the chance to follow Xander Schauffele that week. 


Have a Merry Christmas everyone and a very Happy New Year. Remember to always keep going. Don't give up or in. When you stop believing in yourself, why should anyone else believe in you? Get Strong and Stay Strong!


 


Look forward to seeing you down the road somewhere soon.


All my best,


DJ
