The Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride

Last Friday, TPC Sawgrass was rewarded with the company of approximately 50 wounded warriors and a handful of supporters (including Jacksonville Jaguar players) who participated in an 18 mile bike ride. The journey began from the back lawn of the clubhouse where the participants departed down #18 cart path headed towards #17 green, where the group stopped for a photo opportunity before beginning their bike ride. Once the group returned to TPC Sawgrass, each soldier was assigned their own locker inside of the TOUR locker room and then had the opportunity to enjoy lunch inside of the clubhouse. Following lunch,  golfing clinics were administered by our golf professionals to all the participants.
