My golf game is in bad shape so there is no telling how this is going to go.
Of course this is not playing golf for the sake of playing golf. Shane Ryan of Tobacco Road Blues, who has organized the event, is also using it to raise money for Communites in School of Durham. Check out this information from Shane on what this charity does and how to donate to them.
As a part of the run-up to the event, Shane had members of Team Internet join him on The Walk-Ons podcast. Be sure to check that out where I, as usual, ramble aimlessly.
