Tide Golfers Honor Fallen Soldiers
The Alabama players are part of a field that includes 84 collegiate golfers from across the nation, including 21 of the world's top 100 ranked amateurs.
To show support for Folds of Honor, each golfer will carry a commemorative PING golf bag bearing the name of a fallen soldier from the community in which they live or attend school. That bag will then be auctioned off to benefit Folds of Honor.
Mullinax, from Birmingham, will be representing fallen soldier Jason L. Brown, while Thomas, a native of Goshen, Ky., will represent Robert W. Channell Jr. Whitsett, from Houston, will be carrying a bag with Mark A. Forester's name on it, while Wyatt, a Mobile native will honor Jeffrey O. Ausborn.
Players earning PING All-America honors from the previous season in NCAA Divisions I, II and III plus the NAIA and NJCAA are eligible to be invited to participate in the Patriot All-America.
Additionally, a player from the United States Military, Naval and Air Force Academies have been invited, along with Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) national award recipients, members of the most recent Palmer Cup Teams, American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) All-Americans and Toyota Junior Golf World Cup participants currently enrolled as college freshmen.
