Wounded Veterans Hit the Links in Wounded Warrior Project Courage Cup

Injured Service Members From the U.S. and British Armed Forces Compete in Golf Tournament at T.P.C. Sawgrass

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 17, 2015) – Allies on the battlefield enjoyed healthy competition on the golf course as 10 wounded veterans from Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) squared off against 10 wounded service members from the United Kingdom’s (U.K.) Battle Back organization for the Courage Cup, hosted by WWP. This Ryder Cup-style golf tournament took place over three days at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with the Battle Back participants coming up victorious and bringing the trophy back to the U.K. 

The participating WWP Alumni earned their spots on the team by participating in local, regional, and national golf events offered through the WWP Physical Health and Wellness program. They were selected to the team based on their golf skills in addition to their exemplary participation as WWP Alumni.

Physical Health and Wellness is one of 20 free programs offered by WWP and is targeted to help reduce stress and combat depression while also promoting an overall healthy and active lifestyle by encouraging participation in fun, educational activities. PH&W events are designed to show wounded service members that, regardless of their physical injuries, they can still maintain an active lifestyle and participate in the same activities they enjoyed before they were injured.

For the participants in the Courage Cup, the event was as much about camaraderie and enjoying time with their fellow veterans as it was about competition.  

“When we get together as Alumni, we have a lot of fun,” said Michael McCombs, WWP Alumnus. “When you add the element of competition with the British guys, you realize that we are all in the same boat. No matter what country we come from, we can all share the same experiences.”
