KG’s Blog Post #89 – 2/12/11 10:29pm (Nipper Club & Jeannie Club)
Just laying on the bed and Sir Munch gives me the eyes like get your sorry fingers moving. Because I’m trying to learn to be a good mate to someone, I’m writing against my will.
My head issues are still causing way too many sleepless nights. The leg has been doing better, although this past week has been suspect. I played in a celebrity amputee tournament this past Friday. I’m not sure on which qualification I was entered. Out team shot 13 under, which was pretty good considering we all have zero skills.

I played 3 times this past week so that may explain my leg acting like a duck on juice. I plan on trying to start and playing as many rounds as I can trying to get myself ready for The Liberty with Calc [Apr22-24 Savannah].
Some of you may have read that I’m getting ready to form a Foundation that will benefit dogs. It is my hope to have a place where I can keep around a 100 or 5000 so dogs that idiots have abandoned for reasons that are not excusable. I must first raise some money so I can start everything in motion. So you have already guessed that I’m getting ready to hit you in the head.
My KG mantra is when I’m asking for money, I want you to walk away and say damn that KG is doing a good thing and I also received something good out of it, so you in turn will lobby up a friend and the incredible snowball turns into a snowgazilla. In the beginning I’m going to give you 2 or 3 different ways to help me.
The first will be a simple – you can join our Nipper Club. (Nip, my dog who died in the accident). For $60 you will receive a golf shirt with our specially designed logo (not done yet but it will be classic). I’d tell you that you will get my newsletters, but I don’t want to scare you.
The next way will be the Jeannie Club (my love who died) – this will be a way you can watch your money disappear as the year goes by and I make birdies. I will ask you to pledge a certain amount for every birdie I make in a tournament this year. When I finalize the whole plan I will show you your options, but you will in return get a shirt, hat, dozen balls. This seems like a lot, but it will force me to get off my pain-filled ass and make birdies.
Now, I’m not sure any of you like any of these ideas but that’s why I’m throwing them out now to just give you a heads up. I know this might not seem like the best way to spend money you raise, but I’m alive today because of a dog and it’s time for me to do something good for them. I need to fight through the pain and start living and playing.
Be good my fellow animal lovers or just plain lovers of life. I will tell you the story how my dog saved my life soon, no bull!
