Birdies for the Brave is a military outreach initiative originally created by TOUR player Phil Mickelson and his wife to support brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces injured during combat and their families. Donations to Birdies for the Brave support military home front groups that provide critical programs and services to meet the specialized needs of wounded warriors and military families.
At each TPC course – TPC Boston, TPC Las Colinas, TPC Scottsdale and TPC Sawgrass – every time a participant hit the ball onto the green at a designated hole, one-hundred dollars was donated to the charity. The chance to help a commendable cause was more exciting to attendees than the prizes for achievements like longest drive and closest to the pin.
“Glenmorangie is proud to support a worthy cause like Birdies for the Brave and it is our honor to present them with this $10,000 donation,” said Brian Cox, Vice President of Glenmorangie during the awards ceremony at TPC Sawgrass. The donation was accepted by John Flaschner, Director of Public Relations and Community Outreach for the PGA TOUR’s TPC Network.
