PGA Tour and Tournament Players Clubs Partner to Aid Military Families

Did you know that the PGA Tour has raised over a BILLION dollars for charity since it's conception? It is very nice to see that an organization made up of mostly affluent individuals has donated so much money back to charity. This story from is just another way they are giving back:

"Underscoring its commitment to give back, the PGA TOUR teamed up with 23 Tournament Players Clubs (TPCs) nationwide last summer to raise funds for U.S. troops and their families.

More than $420,000 was raised through golf tournaments and other activities conducted at the clubs from July through September under the umbrella of America Supports You, a nationwide program launched by the Department of Defense that recognizes citizens' support for military men and women and communicates that support to members of our Armed Forces at home and abroad."

"We applaud our TOUR players and TPC members, guests and employees for embracing this important initiative in support of the brave men and women of the U.S. military who perform acts of bravery and self-sacrifice on a daily basis," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. "This outstanding fundraising effort complements the TOUR's giving back mission aimed at enhancing and enriching our communities through support of worthy charitable causes such as this one."
