Golf was my very first love, and I still love it to this day. I would choose to introduce and teach the game golf to underprivileged children. Golf would not only keep these kids out of trouble and off the streets but it would introduce these kids to the inherent values that come with the game of golf. These inherent values include perseverance, integrity, respect, and many more. Teaching this age-old game to children would change the world one kid at a time by changing their character and way of life for the better. In order to make this dream a reality, I would need to start locally. My first step would be communicating with local golf courses and country clubs to set up a free golf camp for underprivileged children that promises to not only give them a decent golf swing but also prepare them for high school and college. Once this method was proven locally, I would expand by calling golf facilities throughout the country and asking them to set up a similar camp with similar goals, having a local college student, who has an interest in both teaching golf and changing kids’ lives, run it. The idea would then be to expand as much as possible until this camp was nationally recognized, changing more and more kids’ lives by the day.
