Callaway Warrior Fitting ProgramATLANTA, Georgia — As golfers fine-tuned their games at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club on the final practice day at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, PGA TOUR player and Callaway Staff Pro Harris English took some time out to help two wounded heroes work on their own golf swings, as part of the Callaway Warrior Club Fitting Program. Conducted in partnership with the TOUR’s Birdies for the Brave military outreach initiative, the program is designed to aid in the rehabilitation process and express appreciation for wounded veterans’ service and sacrifice by providing them with the opportunity to be fit with their own set of custom golf clubs during a PGA TOUR tournament. The fitting at East Lake was the 100th Callaway Warrior Club Fitting to be hosted since the program’s inception four years ago, and the 13th to be hosted in 2015.

“It was my absolute pleasure to spend some time with these true American heroes,” said English. “Sometimes we think we have it tough out on the golf course, but what these guys have gone through on behalf of our country is just unbelievable. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to give back, and to work with Callaway and Birdies for the Brave, both of whom do so much for our military.”

Erik ComptonATLANTA, Georgia (Doug Milne/PGA TOUR) — If you’re on the PGA TOUR and have made it to Atlanta, you’re one fired up individual.

If you’re on the TOUR and not in Atlanta, well, your season is officially over. You’ve been eliminated from the FedExCup Playoffs and have shut it down for a while, descended into that much-anticipated respite.

Unless, of course, you’re Erik Compton.

At No. 124 on the FedExCup points list, Compton did not get his ticket punched to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola at East Lake in Atlanta this week. His season ended after the second round of the Wyndham Championship more than a month ago. Yet, there he was, in Atlanta this week, and busier than anyone. In fact, this was one stop the Miami native etched in stone a long time back.
