Feel Good Golf Story

Here’s a feel-good story from the world of golf. I have enjoyed watching K.J. Choi’s golf career, he’s just such a stud of a dude, and I was stoked when he won The Player’s Championship this past Sunday. The win came with $1.71 million (or after Uncle Sam’s sticky fingers get to it, about $1 million, give or take), $200,000 of which he just gave to relief efforts for damage left by tornadoes in the southeast. He said he didn't want the people affected by the disasters to think that they'd been forgotten. I’m sure he lives comfortably considering how well he does on the PGA Tour, but that’s still a hefty chunk of change to donate. I'm also sure that several other professional athletes make their fair share of donations, it was just cool to hear about this one.
Loads of respect for this guy.
