Sounds ambitious…..you need a young strong back to pull this off. Just imagine playing 50 of the top courses in the Washington Metro Area in just seven weeks. This is precisely what Tyler Dunmyer, a junior at Quince Orchard High School intends to do.
Tyler came up with this ingenious promotion to satisfy a major golf itch and support Junior Achievement of Greater Washington a charity he finds close to his heart. Hitching his wagon with the Web.com’s Mid-Atlantic Championship’s Tickets For Charity program he will give folks an opportunity to see this pro tournament at the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm May 27th through June 2nd and support his favorite charity at the same time.
100% of the ticket price you pay goes to Tyler’s charity. This is a win-win for everyone involved.

Tyler’s dance card includes great fee local courses like Musket Ridge, Stonewall, Raspberry Falls, Renditions, and Whiskey Creek as well as some of the most storied private courses in our area like Columbia Country Club, Woodmont Country Club (site of the final stage qualifying for the U.S. Open each year) and Laurel Hill where they will play the USGA Public Links in 2013. He hopes to make the 50th stop at Avenel Farm to play the TPC Potomac Course the week of the tournament. Sounds like a dream boat couple of months to me.
Take a moment to read some of Tyler’s day-today postings of his exploits. The passion in the writing will give you a get a clear sense that this is much more of a journey of discovery than simply playing great golf courses.

Junior Achievement is a national program with a major presence in the Washington Metropolitan area. Over 50,000 local students a year benefit from programs sponsored by Junior Achievement in work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. Tyler says, “Junior Achievement comes into all of our schools and teaches real world life skills….it is real important stuff and the way they do it really gets the kids attention.”
