It was the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club’s turn to take a swing at raising support and funds for a worthy cause.
Yesterday Golf Pro Tyler Brouilette and Assistant Pro Morgan Day took part in the thirteenth Annual PGA of BC Golf-athon for A-L-S.
Day explains what the event is about.
‘The aim is to golf essentially from sunrise to sunset. We got in eight and a half rounds of 18 last year so it’s definitely an exhausting event but it’s for a good cause and it’s a ton of fun”.
This wasn’t the first time Brouilette Day have taken part in the Golf-athon for A-L-S.
Day said because of that, they should be able to get in ten rounds of golf today from sunrise to sunset.
“The first year was a bit of a battle but you kinda learned to pick up some little tricks of the trade, so staying hydrated, having some snacks and meals along the way. Just gotta have your ducks in a row, get a lot of sleep and you definitely get a lot of sleep afterwards that’s for sure”.
Day said he and Brouilette got a lot of support from club members and that this event really hits home with them as one of their old club members is dealing with A-L-S.
