Golf Pride's Patriot Grip Supports Folds of Honor Foundation
CHASKA, Minn. – I had a chance to eat lunch today in the media center with Major Dan Rooney, an F-16 pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard and a PGA professional. Major Rooney is also the tireless face of Patriot Golf Day (Sept. 4-7) and the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships to the children and spouses of members of the military disabled or killed in service.
Rooney is an inspiring guy who, after serving a few tours in Iraq, said he's looking forward to not only playing more golf this fall but also to watching football from his sofa.
"It's like I missed the whole season last year," he said with a laugh.
Golf Pride recently created a special red, white and blue grip, the Patriot (right), and will donate a percentage of the sale of each all-rubber grip to the Folds of Honor Foundation. Buying them will give you good feel on the course, and a good feeling off it.
