Christian’s Corner

Welcome to Christian’s Corner. Christian was born on August 25th, 1993 and was born with Fanconi anemia, a rare bone marrow disorder. Christian has had a successful bone marrow transplant and is doing well. So well in fact he is now our National Spokesperson for Caddy For A Cure and comes often with us on the PGA TOUR. Christian is the impetus of our program and a hero to many families suffering with FA. As you will see and read below, he has quite a few friends in some very high places!

Florida Swing 2010

Florida was great as many of you know recently we auctioned off the best golfer the Golden Bear (Jack Nicklaus) at the Honda Classic and it was great. Then we headed to Doral in Miami which was our recruitment week for caddyforacure. We got a lot of good guys to sign up to help later on in the year there in Doral. Also I met some very interesting and kind people in Doral like Jenny Larson from Chick Fil A at the Dadeland Mall, and some new friends from Lockheed Martin and met some military service men and women. They were very kind and we need to thank them for their service to our country because we live free because of the brave. We met our service men and women at the Birdies for the Brave military outpost tent where we had Chick Fil A for lunch (Chick Fil A is my favorite). My pal Flash really hooked us up at Doral! Then we were off to Tampa for another tournament for a day (The Transistions). Then we headed to Pirate City for spring training and dinner with Russ Holden and Pirate pitcher Brandon Holden. We had a blast then we headed home to Russ’s house to spend my last few days in Florida where I also met Zig Ziglar at a motivational speaker thing in the Florida Panthers hockey arena then later that night we came back for a Newsboys Christian band rock concert. Oops I almost forgot we met up with The Golf Channels Tim Rosaforte who is now my new buddy we met at Doral and he was as nice as can be. Ok that’s it for this time until next time thanks for reading and tune back in next time.

Portland Again

Wow getting to fly with a marine who protected President Clinton’s helicopter and my friend Gary Myers down to Florida to watch Brandon Holden in a long drive competiton with another Pittsburgh Pirate (Bobby Bradley) was cool, then me and Russ went to Oregon to the LPGA Tournament up there where I met Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis for the first time, we also saw our friends Brittany Lincicome, Nichole Hage and Christina Kim, many thanks to our wonderful ”caddies” for the day, then it was off to Wisconsin for Scott Sanders annual tournament to benefit Caddy For A Cure where I had a blast, my brother Calen, the National Diplomat along with my parents came up and had a great time at the outing, where he and my parents met Scott’s family and I met his daughter Meghan and we all got fat on Kopp’s frozen custard then it was home to Georgia again…

Happy New Year 2012

Happy New Year… I am back with more exciting news starting with some events that were towards the end of last year, we will start with the exciting news that a caddy that ‘caddied’ for a cure in Oregon for Stacey Lewis runs a construction company and has now joined the CFAC team of sponsors he will now be our shirt sponsor with his company Emerick Construction and we have recently become good friends with another great guy that makes golf shirts for kids like mine and Calens size and his company is called The Littlest Golfer. Then later on down into the fall season we had fun at the Blue angels Homecoming show where it was announced that Captain Boss McWherter was going to be the leader of the ‘Blues’ for two more season making him the longest serving leader of the Navys Flight Demonstration Team so far and they have also announced through their events coordinator ‘Focker’ that the ‘Blues’ would be coming to do a show this year in Warner Robins which is about 30 minutes from Macon Ga where I live, but rewind a bit on my way down to Florida we made a stop and let a friend of mine who lives in GA as well get off and me and the pilot went inside and we were greeted by a warm smile and the words hold on I gotta get the cookies out of the oven the lady at the airport where we had stopped had made us fresh cookies including pumpkin spice and chocolate chip cookies so we got the cookies to go and we finished our flight to my destination of South Florida for the annual Caddy For A Cure golf outing that we have down there then me and the Holdens drove to Pensacola Florida and y’all know what happened after that…
