I’m having a great moment as I sit here at Starbucks considering my plans for 2017. If you didn’t know, I turned 50 last year. Nothing exciting to report about turning 50 other than I can feel the clock tick a bit faster and it takes a bit longer to complete a workout.
Today I am making some resolutions of what I plan to do for the next 12 months. I want all of you to hold me accountable, so I thought I would tell you about my plans.
I decided that I am dedicating this year to you, the Moe Norman fans of the world. To honor you and your interest in Moe, in 2017 I am pushing forward on the following:
- 1. Getting Moe inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame
I know this is ambitious. My good friend Peter Fox has put me up to it. I told him this would be a major project and he said – and I quote “Yes, I agree, but the only person in the world to do it is YOU!” So I am taking it on (with Peter’s help of course).
- 2. Dedicate more Graves Golf initiatives for HEAL
I am extremely passionate about HEAL – a non-profit organization that helps kids. HEAL, an acronym for Healing Every Autistic Life also has a group called HUG for Help Us Golf. I plan to make 2017 a great year for HEAL and a great year for the kids. You can find out more information about HEAL here: http://www.healautismnow.org. Donate while you’re there!
- 3. Improving Moenorman.org – keep it alive with great content
Moenorman.org has been a passion project. The site has been live for one month, and as you can see, I have hundreds of articles and stories about Moe. My goal is to build the site as a place that you can go to learn about his life and experiences where we all share in the joy of “knowing Moe.”
- 4. Complete my book – a personal story about Moe
Moe has been an important part of my life. I have learned so much from knowing him. My goal is to share this knowledge with you in this manuscript.
- 5. Single Plane Golf Association
Launch the Single Plane Golf Association (SPGA) – a place where likeminded Single Plane and Moe Norman fans can congregate and benefit from the community of golfers who found Moe. I am excited about the SPGA.
- 6. Play golf again
I can hear everyone in my company laughing right now. I say every year. I always have good intentions to play golf, but business always takes priority. In 2017 I would like to start at least hitting some balls to get back into “golf shape” and maybe play some golf with the guys.
I would love to hear about some of your New Year’s Resolutions. Email me at Toddg@moenormangolf.com!
