PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL – PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem recently recorded a public service announcement in support of Operation Support Military Golf. As the son of a U.S. Marine who lived on military bases and grew up playing military golf courses at those bases, Finchem knows first-hand the importance of golf to servicemembers.
“I just want to congratulate everybody for this support of this great cause to revive the golf courses at military facilities around the country,” said Finchem.
“In many ways, the military, our men and women in uniform, and golf have a lot in common. The core values and the basic instincts of players and the military are very much line in terms of what we believe. So, I think that anything we can do to assist in the quality of life for our men and women in uniform is worth doing.”
The public service announcement will be aired as part of the OSMG Invitational on November 22 and 23.
“We cannot thank the Commissioner enough for his positive words and support regarding OSMG and our mission,” said Jennifer Poth, OSMG Chairman & CEO.
“Commissioner Finchem grew up surrounded by military golf. In turn, this experience established his great respect for all our servicemembers and the value of positive recreational facilities for all military families.”
