Don Rooney, a decorated military officer, is known for his compelling and inspirational speeches and will be the speaker at a very special breakfast event to kick off Fold of Honor Friday at the tournament.

Lt. Col. Don Rooney has an extensive heroic resume as a decorated F-16 pilot with 3 combat tours over Iraq. He is also a Class A member of the PGA is is the only fighter pilot and PGA professional ever, not to mention one inspiring man.
