Nearly 300 golfers teed off at Woodmont Country Club to raise money for Patriot Point and the Purple Heart Foundation
ROCKVILLE, Md. – The rain stayed away and the DC Touchdown Club presented by Capital Bank N.A. enjoyed a wonderful day at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville as it partnered with the Team 980 to host the region’s best golf tournament and raise money for a pair of worthy causes focused on service members and veterans.
The True Heroes Golf Tournament featured a capacity field of nearly 300 golfers and benefited Patriot Point and the Purple Heart Foundation. Patriot Point is the Military Bowl Foundation’s 290-acre retreat on Maryland’s Eastern Shore for recovering service members.
“What a wonderful day,” Military Bowl Foundation Executive Director Steve Beck said. “We were worried about the weather, but it ended up being a spectacular day on the course. What a great job by Woodmont hosting the event. Special thanks to our sponsors and our partners at The Team 980 for helping make this such an awesome day.”
The DC Touchdown Club’s tournament sponsors included 3M, Capital Bank N.A., Under Armour, the American Athletic Conference, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the Kimsey Foundation, L3 Technologies, Mission BBQ, Cassaday & Company, Washington Talent, Annie & Paul Norman and Janet Phillips.
Congratulations to the foursome of Nish Patel, Ben Ricker, Jeff Farrell and Ty Herroitt, who claimed first place in the scramble format with a score of 53. Mike Roster and Molly Murphy were the longest drive winners, while Military Bowl Foundation board member Larry Leber won the closest to the pin award by putting his tee shot within 4 feet 2 inches on the second hole of Woodmont’s North Course.
