Patriot Day reminder


In case you missed it, Friday begins the Patriot Day program, Sept. 4-7, during which players at public and private golf courses are asked to make a donation to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which benefits families of veterans who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty.

Have you been tweaking your stance or grip lately? I had a chance to spend some time with these veterans at the PGA Championship. Some were missing arms, hands and legs, but all had smiles and were enthusiastic to be close to a game they love. No bitterness.

Their sacrifices make it possible for all of us, even President Barack Obama, to enjoy golf under a blanket of freedom. If you play golf this weekend at a participating course, please donate. The veterans have already given more than their share.
