Birdies for the Brave
Birdies for the Brave is a PGA Tour supported military outreach initiative dedicated to supporting the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Since 2005, the PGA TOUR has joined with it players and corporate partners to raise millions of dollars for military homefront groups that provide critical programs and services to meet the specialized needs of wounded warriors and military families. Birdies for the Brave was originally created by Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy, to support troops injured during combat. For each birdie or eagle made by Phil throughout the season, a contribution of $100 for a birdie or $500 for an eagle is made to Homes For Our Troops and Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
