Jordan and Stephanie CodyLA QUINTA, California (Doug Milne/PGA TOUR) — Jason Dufner took home the trophy at the CareerBuilder Challenge, but Jordan and Stephanie Cody, along with their 21-month old daughter Kaydence, walked away from PGA WEST with an even greater gift. They took home, well, a home.

Following three deployments, numerous hostile engagements with American enemies and resulting traumatic brain injury, due to several improvised explosive devices (IEDs), Lance Corporal Cody, 26, was medically retired after nearly seven years of military service.

During the third round of the Career Builder Challenge, the Military Warriors Support Foundation, in association with CareerBuilder, officially awarded Jordan and his family with the mortgage-free home in Fresno, California.

The award was made possible after the Military Warriors Support Foundation read his application and deemed his family most worthy of the 701st home they’ve given away through the program.
