Birdies for the Brave® is a national initiative dedicated to honoring and showing appreciation to the courageous men and women of our United States Armed Forces, First Responders and their families.


Birdies for the Brave was created in 2004 to raise funds for combat-wounded veterans. Thanks to the vision and the passionate support of PGA TOUR players, tournament fans, volunteers, TPC club members and corporate sponsors, Birdies for the Brave has grown exponentially across the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and Korn Ferry Tour.

The program has always encompassed a broad spectrum of military outreach and appreciation activities conducted during PGA TOUR tournaments, as well as a series of fundraising events hosted at partner properties – an effort that has raised much-needed funds for military home front charities which have provided direct services for military members, veterans, and their families ranging from financial aid and rehabilitation programs to housing, counseling and educational scholarships and career development and recruitment.

In 2024, Birdies for the Brave is proud to broaden and expand our programming and support to include First Responders and their families and a broader scope of qualified charitable organizations.
