SAN DIEGO CA (KGTV) — Clay Phillips loves to play golf, so he decided to combine his passion with a charitable cause.
He planned to play 50 rounds of golf on 50 courses in 50 states. In August, he began his adventure by playing on a Hawaiian course.
Next, we played a round in Alaska before moving south to the Pacific Northwest. It was then on to the United States, in every direction. His mission was completed when he returned to California to play a round at Singing Hills Golf Resort.
It’s all blurred when I look back. Phillips stated that it was a blur of motel hallways and shots using my pitching wedge again and again.
Phillips stated that the journey was rewarding, but not all fun and games.
“The easiest part was that my planning worked. He said that the hardest part was being away from home.
Phillips stated that he covered more miles than 10,000 during his golf trip.
Phillips’ trip raised awareness and funds for access to clean water around the world. Phillips claims that he can raise just under $47,000 if all of the pledges and donations he receives, Project Blue International, and Water 1st International.
“There are millions, millions, and even millions of people affected by something that we take as a given. Access to clean water is all that’s needed. Phillips explained that people waste too much time and that economies are not as strong as they could be.
Phillips is unsure when he will make another putt after playing 50 days straight in 50 different states.
“My wife said it would take three days,” he stated. “I would say it will take three years.” “So somewhere in between those two.”
