Today we held our annual tournament, Birdies for the Brave in support of our Military. It was a shotgun start on both the Stadium and Valley course. This is a wonderful tournament and we as a staff really enjoy setting up for this event.
Birdies for the Brave is a fundrasing organization designed to help raise money for all the wounded warriors and their families. This foundation was originally created by Phil Mickleson, for every birdie he made he would give $100 to support soliders that were injured in combat, and for every eagle he gave $500.
Since 2005 the tour has joined with PGA tour players and corporate partners to help raise millions of dollars for wounded warriors and military families.
We here at TPC Sawgrass are Proud Supporters of Birdies for the Brave.
