So, we had to go through a gender equality appeal and just try to have our sport be Olympic."

Montgomery, TX - A fundraising event featuring more than two dozen pro golfers raised more than $1 million for Hurricane Harvey relief, thanks in large part to a hefty price paid for a private lesson with Tiger Woods.

It was held at Bluejack National in Montgomery, Texas, about an hour outside Houston and the first Woods-designed course to open in the U.S. The big-ticket item on the auction block was a private, two-person lesson with Woods at Bluejack National that sold for a whopping $210,000.

Visalia, CA - It isn't the most wonderful time of the year when you're taking ornaments down and unwrapping lights off a dead, dried-up Christmas tree.

Visalia's Boy Scout Troop 317 helps with the Christmas takedown by picking up your dead tree and disposing of it in drop-off bins located around town. For residents, this is one less task to think about during the holidays. For scouts, they get to do a good service. It also brings them one step closer to summer camp in Oregon.
