SAN DIEGO, California (KGTV) — Clay Phillips loves golf, so he decided to combine his passion with a good cause.
His goal was to play for 50 days on 50 different courses in 50 different states. He began his adventure in August in Hawaii.
The next stop was an Alaska round of golf before heading south towards the Pacific Northwest. From there, it traveled in every direction across the United States. After he returned to Southern California, he played a round of golf at the Singing Hills Golf Resort.

Phillips stated that the trip was fulfilling, but not all fun and games.
“The best part about my planning was that it worked. He said that the hard part was that he wasn’t at home.
Phillips stated that he covered more then 10,000 miles during his golfing adventure.
Phillips helped raise awareness and money to ensure that everyone has access to clean water. Phillips estimates that he will have raised over $47,000 if all of the pledges and donations he has received are fulfilled.
“There are millions and millions and millions of people affected by something that we take for granted. It’s easy to get clean water. People waste a lot, economies aren’t what they should be, it’s just like Phillips said, “It’s like the low hanging fruits of great causes.”
Phillips has played 50 days consecutively in 50 states and doesn’t know when the next putt will be.
He said, “My wife claims it will take approximately three days.” “I say about three years. “So somewhere in between these two.
