For the second consecutive year, Golf Channel will air an hour-long feature during Veterans Day week on The Patriot Cup, an Owasso-based golf event benefiting families of our nation’s fallen and disabled service members. The Patriot Cup, presented by Budweiser and the Folds of Honor Foundation premieres on Monday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m.
Taped over Memorial Day Weeken, The Patriot Cup paired top PGA TOUR players, Champions Tour players and celebrities with members of the military in a Ryder Cup-style match pitting the Ground Pounders (Army, Navy and Marines) versus the Fly Boys (Air Force).
The hour-long special hosted by Rich Lerner with on-course commentary by David Feherty, combines event footage of golfers including Rickie Fowler, Tom Lehman, Gary Woodland, Corey Pavin and Peter Jacobsen with feature stories from Folds of Honor scholarship recipients.
“The Patriot Cup is a true celebration of God, country and the game of golf,” said Major Dan Rooney of the Folds of Honor Foundation. “It is amazing to see how the greatest golfers in the world and celebrities like Vince Gill, Rascal Flatts and Craig T. Nelson are so appreciative of the opportunity to give back to the families who have given so much. We look forward to sharing these stories with viewers of Golf Channel throughout Veterans Day week.”
