Approximately 2,500 spectators watched spirited play at the Second Annual Patriot Cup held at The Patriot Golf Course in Owasso.
The event supports the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships and other assistance to families of fallen or disabled veterans.
The event’s gala raised more than $170,000. Numbers from the Patriot Cup are still being tallied.
The Cup was a massive effort from major national sponsors to local food vendors. Caddys, course hands and scorekeepers included actual pros from all over the country.
Thirty-two military personnel qualified to play in the Patriot Cup in teams with celebrities and professional golfers. Every branch of the military was represented.
