HOLE-IN-ONE!!!

After my father shot the best round of his life this morning (72), I asked him to come out and play with me this evening.  He was glad he came out to play another 18 as he got to witness my hole-in-one on number 6 at Glen Lovat Golf Club.  I used a 52 degree gap wedge from 134 yards.  My father wasn't looking when I hit the shot and right after I hit he said "where did it go?" and I responded with "it could be in".  The pin was tucked behind the mound on the left of the green and we didn't know it was in until we got up to the hole and saw the ball mark just infront of the hole and Dad looked in the hole and yelled "IT'S IN!".  A solid high five and a roar was exchanged between the two of us!  This is the second hole-in-one of my career and both of them occurred on the same hole 4 years apart.

Teams are signing up quickly for my fundraiser tournament on October 1st so sign up your team if you haven't already.  Glen Lovat is donating all of the monies earned on this day to help pay for my expenses playing professional golf.  I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Website Development Update

Hello Everyone,
I have recently had the honor of having Richard MacKinnon step up and offer his services to create a website for me.  Richard has a great passion for the game of golf, and would love to see me achieve my life long goal of playing golf on the PGA Tour.  Richard is going to do everything he can to help me market myself and help me recruit investors.  Over the past week we have been out on the course getting some video footage as well as pictures for the website.  The website will be a way for me to market myself and allow my friends and supporters to stay updated on my results and progress on the professional level.  We have been getting some pretty good video clips on the course and are focusing on a "Recovery 101" video right now. The video will consist of me hitting shots out of trouble situations to show one of my strengths of being able to grind it out on the course and help promote my website.  This video will be something you will want to send around the office and show all your friends!

I will keep everyone updated on the progress of the website and in the mean time I will have continuous updates on this blog.

The domain of the website will be www.BrianAffleck.com

Keigan Lucas Memorial Golf Tournament

Yesterday, September 5th, My wife Charlotte and I held the 2nd Annual Keigan Lucas Memorial Golf Tournament at Glen Lovat Golf Club.  The day was a great success which had 32 teams of 4 come out and support the Pictou County Day Care.  Keigan attended Pictou County Day Care and they are a non-profit organization that provides to over 75 families at the moment.  They are in need of funding because they are relocating in 2012.  With the money we raised yesterday, it will provide a great start to the Day Cares fundraising. Thanks to everyone who cam out and supported this great cause and helped us keep Keigan's memory alive!
