Jim Colton is the founder and a Managing Director of One Divot, the charitable organization behind the Hundred Hole Hike. Colton was named the 2011 Walking Golfer of the Year by the Walking Golfers Society for his work in raising money to help Ben Cox, a caddie at Ballyneal who was injured in a skiing accident. Colton walked 155 holes in one day and raised over $110,000 to help the Cox family. The success of that event has led to the formation of One Divot and the expanded Hundred Hole Hike in 2012. Colton also actively writes about his golf travels on his blog, wegoblogger31.com.
Note: I will be participating in four different hike events in 2013. Therefore, I will be showing up in four different hike events, each using the total target of 500 holes. A pledge in any of these four events is a pledge for all of the events, so please keep the 500-hole target in mind when you pledge.
