DC Touchdown Club and ESPN 980 Team Up to Make True Heroes Golf Tournament a Huge Success

Event at Historic Woodmont Country Club Raised Money for Patriot Point and the Purple Heart Foundation

ROCKVILLE, Md. – The DC Touchdown Club presented by Capital Bank N.A. joined forces with ESPN 980 to successfully host the region’s best golf tournament benefiting a pair of worthy causes that are focused on service members and veterans on Monday at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville.

The True Heroes Golf Tournament featured a capacity field of nearly 300 golfers, raising money for Patriot Point and the Purple Heart Foundation. Patriot Point is the DC Bowl Committee’s latest endeavor, a 290-acre property on Maryland’s Eastern Shore where guests are able to enjoy outdoor recreational activities and relax.

“This is really taking our golf outing to another level,” DC Touchdown Club Executive Director Steve Beck said. “From everything surrounding the event to the golf itself, we have raised the bar for future years. Special thanks to all of our sponsors, to our partners at ESPN 980 and to Woodmont for hosting this awesome day.”

The DC Touchdown Club’s tournament sponsors included Northrop Grumman, 3M, Capital Bank N.A., Under Armour, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Yellow Ribbon Fund, Events DC, McCormick Paints, Cassaday & Company, Krauss Investment Group, Biosystems, Capital Ball, Comcast NBC Universal, OTJ Architects and Paula and Janet Phillips.

The Byrne family foursome of Jeb, John, Luke and Will Byrne captured first place by shooting 54 in the scramble format. Will Byrne and Marion Phelan were the longest drive winners, while Matt McCormick earned closest to the pin honors.

The DC Touchdown Club is working on events for the fall and Touchdown Club members will enjoy first-class hospitality at the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman on Dec. 28 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.
