Golfers Do 100 Holes For Charity

Bookmark and Share

Golfers took to the links in Brandon, Monday, trying to complete a grueling 100 holes of golf for Junior Achievement of South Dakota.

46 golfers, including our own sports director Mark Ovenden, teed off to benefit 40,000 students around South Dakota. Each golfer raised twenty-five hundred dollars apiece to bring the grand total of money raised to around one-hundred-twenty thousand dollars for the cause. That's another high mark for an event that's raised a lot of money already.

"This is the 13th annual event," 100-Holes Of Golf Chairman Michael Kedick says, "I've done it personally for the last four years, so for the total amounts of raise we're approaching a million dollars."

Now we don't have the specifics on how Mark finished, but he did send us a text a couple hours ago saying he hit a 60-foot birdie putt and did his patented birdie dance.
