I had the HONOR of playing in the Birdies for the Brave golf tournament at TPC Sawgrass on November 8 & 9, 2015. The hospitality and support for Wounded Veterans was an amazing experience. I never dreamed I would be able to relax and play Golf where the Pros play. The team I was placed on were helpful to my game, fun to share the day with and treated my Wife and I like family. Winning a set of Callaway Clubs was a surprise and it will change my game and my life! It was a very memorable day!! Thank you Birdies For The Brave for everything you do!!
