ICYMI: Warrior Open Champion Chad Pfeifer On The Golf Channel
Warrior Open 2011 and 2012 champion Corporal Chad Pfeifer is featured in the Golf Channel article “Retired vet's goal: First amputee to win on PGA Tour”:
Golf? That wasn’t Chad Pfeifer’s speed. Way too tame a game for a three-sport high school athlete who was good enough in baseball to play collegiately. To him, golf was a sport for “old, retired people,” or for high school kids who couldn’t play football or baseball. He tried it – he played in a fund-raising outing his college baseball team held – but he and his teammates “would just get out there and try to hit that ball as far as we could with that driver.” Pfeifer, now 31, laughs at those memories. They seem so far away. Golf is his life now. It’s how he supports wife Summer and their first child, 7-month-old Grady. When he isn’t working in a golf shop, he’s working on his game, striving to achieve his goal of becoming the first amputee to win on the Web.com or PGA tours. He won the Warrior Open, a tournament for wounded veterans founded by the George W. Bush Presidential Center, in 2011 and 2012, making his second hole-in-one in the second event. After holing an 8-iron on the 147-yard fourth hole, exchanging high-fives and hugs with the rest of his group and hopping into his cart and heading for the green, Pfeifer noticed a familiar figure. “I looked and saw President George W. Bush start walking onto the green and he had his hands raised. “I didn’t realize he was up there ... it was incredible to know that he was one of my official witnesses to the shot. That was definitely pretty cool.”
We Can All Serve, and We Should
This nation was founded on the ideals of freedom and those freedoms are protected because of those who served on and off the battlefield.
