From my PGA Partners Club:

Today I rec’d my monthly news letter and thought I would share it with all who may visit:

Learn Leadership From Lumpy
New: The “Lil’ Lumpy Leadership Initiative
Who: Tim Herron, one of the PGA TOUR’s more popular players, and his wife, Ann.

What: A multi-dimensional educational initiative that uses golf to teach kids leadership skills. The initiative includes the writing and production of an animated DVD series featuring “Lumpy” Herron as himself. He says the program bridges his two greatest passions: family and golf.

Skills: The series teaches 18 leadership traits, including building trust, never fear doing the right thing and share success.

Quote: “I want what’s best for my kids, and I want them to learn the leadership skills that the game of golf taught me,” says Herron, who was diagnosed with dyslexia as a child. “I’m a perfect example of how the game can change a kid’s life.”

Summary: In each episode, Lil’ Lumpy overcomes hazards presented by the most outlandishly designed golf courses located in places like Antarctica, Neptune and the deepest jungles of South America. The Herrons have partnered with Maggie’s Imagination Farm to create the series. Flurry Animation Studios is creating the 3D animation.
