NO golf skill, NO problem in 20 min crash course for local fundraiser

I played in my very first golf tournament ever. Mahalo to Chad from Better Brands/ Young's Market for extending the invitation. I borrowed a 9 iron, wedge, and a putter, got a bag of golf balls from another friend and showed up with a homemade mini club carrier made by my father in law.

Got the invitation on Tuesday, borrowed clubs on Wednesday, went to a range where Chie a Aloha Section PGA Pro, my college classmate, gave me a 20 minute crash course on how to hit my 9 iron. Friday I showed up to play and was greeted by Amy Hammond, that put me at ease and told me just to have a good time.

Here is a highlight reel of the day, shot and edited on my Iphone.

Mahalo to Better Brands, American Express, players, volunteers, sponsors and Amy! 

The 13th Hale 'Aina 'Ohana Golf Tournament was held April 25 at the Kapolei Golf Course. Local celebrity chefs, restaurant owners, and hospitality professionals all turned out in support of the 'Ohana, a nonprofit that provides Hawaii culinary students and professionals access to cutting edge knowledge through programs with local and visiting chefs, as well as "hands on" apprentice opportunities.
