A golfer's 12 days of Christmas

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! (Yes, I know it's late.) Happy Kwanzaa! Whatever your religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season.

This is a great time of year. It's a time for families and friends to be together... a time for love and harmony.

As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women make every day.

Take the time to tell your loved ones how much you love them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile.

Times may be tough, but there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life.

At this time of year we all tend to be more humane, kind and caring. My wish is that we would keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one.

With that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.

On the first day of Christmas, Golf Santa gave to me, a one on an island par three.
