Callaway Golf, Birdies for the Brave honor heroes at CareerBuilder Challenge

LA QUINTA, Calif. – Callaway Golf joined with Birdies for the Brave this week to honor two local Purple Heart recipients by hosting the first of 15 Callaway Warrior Club Fittings to be held in 2016. Conducted during the PGA TOUR’s CareerBuilder Challenge on the TPC Stadium Course at PGA WEST in La Quinta, Calif., the event offered these two American heroes the opportunity to be fitted with their own set of custom golf clubs on the practice facility and take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Callaway Equipment Truck, where TOUR players are fitted on-site during tournaments. The program is designed to aid in the rehabilitation process while expressing gratitude to the courageous members of our U.S. Armed Forces for their service and sacrifice. The golf clubs will be presented to both heroes on Saturday during a military appreciation ceremony hosted by PGA TOUR player and Birdies for the Brave founder Phil Mickelson at 4 p.m. on the 18th green of the TPC Stadium Course.
