When Ted was 14 years old, he had a dream to play America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses in a single calendar year. He didn’t know if it could be done, but vowed in his retirement that he would attempt it.
Ted was diagnosed with Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN) which is a debilitating disease that will slowly reduce his ability to move and be active. Thankfully it won’t kill him, but it has the potential to make life difficult down the road.
With this diagnosis, making his dream a reality needed to happen now. So he closed his business and started making plans to travel the nation playing these courses.
Ted has already made the trip to each and every course. You see, only 13 of the 100 top courses are public. All 87 of the others are private. That means he has to be sponsored by a member to play on the course.
This is going to be an endeavor and he’s excited to make it happen. In fact, he called his longtime friend, Michael Higgins, to help make this dream come true. Listen as they talk about this story, our history, how they’re going to make this happen, and what to expect in the coming episodes.
As if this challenge wasn’t already hard enough, Ted has some stipulations by which he must abide. Take note and let’s see if he can accomplish all of them.
Ted hopes to raise $100,000 for the GBS | CIDP Foundation International. It is a global nonprofit organization supporting individuals and their families affected by Guillain-Barre’ syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), and related conditions through a commitment to support, education, research and advocacy.
