Callaway Warrior Club Fittings
To aid in both the physical and psychological rehabilitation of our American heroes, as well as express gratitude for their service and sacrifice, Birdies for the Brave teams up with Callaway Golf Company to host Callaway Warrior Club Fittings at PGA TOUR events across the nation.
Callaway Warrior Club Fittings provide combat-wounded heroes with the unique experience of being fit for custom golf clubs on the driving range of a PGA TOUR event. Along with the fitting, warriors are also treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the Callaway equipment truck and often have the opportunity to interact with PGA TOUR players. To date, Callaway has teamed up with Birdies for the Brave to fit more than 100 warriors for custom clubs.
The 2017 PGA TOUR season will host 15 Callaway Warrior Club Fittings at tournaments across the nation. To apply for this unique opportunity, please complete the application below. Please be sure to include detailed information about where and when you were deployed, your branch, and how you sustained your injuries (sample bio below). Along with the application you will be asked to provide a letter from a national military non-profit that recommends you for the program.
Army CPL Mickelson was driving in a convoy with the 106th Infantry Regiment (5th Brigade), 101st Airborne Division, in Logar Province, Afghanistan in 2013 when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device (IED). CPL Mickelson doesn’t remember much of the accident, but has been told that he saw the pressure board and swerved to avoid it, taking the majority of the blast to himself. The explosion resulted in the loss of both legs, vision loss in his right eye, burns all over his body and a traumatic brain injury. CPL Mickelson, a competitive athlete in high school, didn’t think he would be able to play sports or compete again, but soon found a love for golf. He credits the game with helping him physically and emotionally rehabilitate.
