Wishing Everyone Strength after Matthew

Strength after Hurricane MatthewEWGA HQ closed our Palm Beach Gardens office last week due to the impending threat of Hurricane Matthew. South Floridian's experienced a minor inconvenience while the dangerous storm followed the coast. Our friends in Northern Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina weren't so fortunate.  Our thoughts are with everyone during this trying time.

After disasters like this, people often ask, what can I do to help. You may make a $10 donation to the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief by texting MATTHEW to 90999 or you can go to for larger donations.

So how do we idnetify and avoid these mistakes?

  1. Pride - an excess belief in your own abilities, such as "I can carry that water hazard.."
  2. Envy - a desire for others traits or abilities, as in "I can hit just as far as you.."
  3. Gluttony - consuming more than one desires, like saying "I think I'll have two hot dogs at the turn..."
  4. Lust - a constant craving of pleasure, like "I don't need to take a break..."
  5. Anger - envoking fury or wrath, such as "I swear if I don't make this 3-footer..."
  6. Greed - an excess desire for material wealth, similar to "I can reach Par-5 green in two..."
  7. Sloth - an avoidance of work, like "I don't need to practice to improve..."
