PGA Tournament Offers Free Tickets for Military Families

A PGA tournament hosted by Tiger Woods is offering free tickets and other military-related offerings for military families and U.S. military personnel. This Tiger Woods sponsored PGA event, the Quicken Loans National golf tournament, has a tradition of paying tribute to the women and men of the U.S. military and their military families. This year's tournament, which runs July 28 through August 02 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, is no different.

Thanks to the tournament's Military Services Partner Lockheed Martin, military families will once again enjoy complimentary tickets, food and other amenities at the PGA's Quicken Loans National golf tournament. There will also be military outreach programs all week long.

If you make it to the tournament, make sure to enjoy these military amenities. Enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages and a premier viewing location for the 15th green at the Lockheed Martin Military Pavilion. Watch Tiger Woods kick off the tournament during the Military Appreciation Hole Opening Tee Shot ceremony. Visit the The USO Activity Zone at the tournament's main entrance where spectators can learn more about supporting our military and their families and also can pack a special care package for the troops.

Tickets will be available to all DOD personnel, including Coast Guard (Active Duty, Reserve, Retired, National Guard, Dependents and Civilians) at designated ITT/ITR offices within a 150-mile radius of Washington, D.C.

Wounded Iraq War Veteran Takes Aim at PGA Tour

If you haven't read the inspiring story of wounded veteran Chad Pfeifer over on the military news blog BuiltUSA, then make sure to visit now and give it a read.

"The retired Army corporal, who lost his leg due to an IED in Iraq, found much more than a new hobby when he started playing the game of golf. As Chad Pfeifer said, “Golf saved my life.” Now he’s got a real shot at playing with the pros on the PGA tour."

Update on Phiefer's Story - Golf Digest reported that by playing in the Albertsons Boise Open, "Pfeifer is making history as the first veteran amputee to tee it up in a Tour event, on the road to his eventual goal of making the PGA Tour."

Congrats and good luck Chad!
