    CRENSHAW asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. CRENSHAW. Mr. Speaker, I rise to announce the results of a competition that takes place every year.

    Every year, the House Republicans play against the House Democrats in a golf match that is patterned after the Ryder Cup. This is called the Congressional Cup.

    This takes place once each year, and I have been privileged to serve as the captain of the Republican team for 4 years. I am pleased to announce with all the humility I can muster that the Republicans have won again for the fourth straight year.

    The good news is that it is a fundraising event that has raised nearly $2 million for an organization called First Tee, which introduces young people to the game of golf.

    The event this year raised a little less than $100,000. As I said, over a 15-year period, we have raised over $2 million.

    This introduces young people to the game of golf; the principles of golf, like discipline, hard work, and commitment; and life skills to help those individuals.

    So I want to congratulate the members of the team for another great win. There was a lot of hard work, dedication, et cetera.

    I yield to the gentleman from Kentucky (Mr. Yarmuth), my counterpart, the captain of the Democratic team.
