Birdies for the Brave is the PGA TOUR’s primary vehicle for supporting the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Since 2005, the TOUR has joined with PGA TOUR players and corporate partners to raise millions of dollars for military homefront groups that directly serve military men and women lost or seriously injured in performance of their duty, through fundraising events at TPC clubs nationwide. Net proceeds from this year’s event will be distributed by PGA TOUR Charities, Inc. to the following beneficiaries: Home for our Troops, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Operation Homefront, Navy SEAL Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, United Through Reading, Military Warriors Support Foundation, and the Green Beret Foundation.
