Callaway, Birdies for the Brave honor local wounded heroes at Valspar Championship

PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Birdies for the Brave showed its gratitude to Purple Heart recipients, Jason Ellis and Derek Austin, on Monday, March 7 by inviting them to participate in the Callaway Warrior Club Fitting Program on the practice facility at Innisbrook Resort & Club during the 2016 Valspar Championship.

Through the generosity of Callaway Golf, both participants were fitted for their own custom set of Callaway Golf clubs, enjoyed a meet and greet with PGA TOUR player Andres Gonzalez, and took a behind-the-scenes tour of the Callaway equipment truck, where they learned about the process involved in fitting PGA TOUR players for clubs on-site during PGA TOUR tournaments. One of more than 15 Callaway-sponsored fittings scheduled to take place at PGA TOUR tournaments in 2016 as part of the Birdies for the Brave military outreach initiative, the event is designed to aid in the rehabilitation process while showing gratitude for the service and sacrifice of these two American heroes.
