The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County Executive Director Jaymee Harvey Willms says "these people are nuts, but I'm glad they're on my team!"

Welcome to speed golf.  On Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Kettle Hills Golf Course in Richfield, golfers are challenged to play as many holes as they can in the 8-hour span, all to benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County.  Click here for more info.

It's not about the score.  It's about playing as many holes as possible.  The record is 203 holes.  

James Kelly plays as a big brother now, because 21 years ago he was a little.  And now he's the PGA Golf Pro at West Bend Country Club.

"For me, it helped me get through a rough spot in my life," Kelly said. "And now this is my way to give back."

 Western Lakes PGA Head Golf Pro Garrett Mack says, "It feels great to give back. To see the kids, it makes it all worthwhile."
