Future UIS golfer plays 100 holes for charity

Despite scorching conditions, Woodlawn grad and golfer Nick Tannahill walked 100 holes for charity on July 23, 2012. He said the idea came to him in the shower, as a way to raise money for the United Methodist Children's Home in Mt. Vernon.

Tannahill started at 6 a.m. and was through about 60 holes by 1 p.m. He enlisted the help of a couple friends to keep him company throughout the day. The 18-year-old will play for University Illinois-Springfield in the fall.

Tannahill was featured by WSIL-TV in a July 23, 2012, report.
