"Many of us have no idea what these veterans face once they get home," said the 69-year-old Harmon, whose father Claude was a long-time golf professional at Winged Foot Country Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y. and also the winner of the 1948 Masters. "The American Soldiers have always been my heroes and those that have made the ultimate personal sacrifice, in terms of loss of some or all of their physical or mental facilities, are part of the group that the Harmon's Heroes Foundation tries to help. In the past and for the foreseeable future we will continue to hold golf and other charity functions to raise monies to help support this worthy cause. To that end I am directing the "Butch Harmon About Golf" staff to set aside $25 from the sale of each DVD that is sold, and donate those proceeds to the Harmon's Heroes Foundation, effective immediately, thru April 10th. " Withe Manni match, each DVD sold will generate $50 for the Foundation.

Butch Harmon has been involved in golf for more than 40 years. He was a PGA Tour pro from 1969 to 1971, and won the 1971 Broome County Open. He became best known, however, through his work as a teacher and instructor. In the early 1990s, he was Greg Norman's instructor. That was followed by a 10-year association with Tiger Woods, from 1993 to 2004. Harmon has worked with 100+ PGA, LPGA, and European Tour players, including 21 Majors winners. The Butch Harmon School of Golf currently has four signature locations throughout the U.S. and Dubai, and is one of the top golf academies in the world. Harmon has a long history of giving back to the community through golf. After visiting U.S. troops around the world, he created the Harmon's Heroes Foundation that assists military personnel in various ways. Harmon hosts wounded veterans at his VIP schools and also hosts an annual event that raises funds to purchase homes for deserving veterans.
Harmon's annual Veteran's Day tournament in Las Vegas on behalf of the Vets has been successful raising money, and this DVD effort will help raise additional funding. To catalyze donations, the new $25 pledge per DVD will appear in a full-page ad in the next issue of Golf Digest. BUY THE DVD NOW.
