Making an impact
In 2017, the TGR Learning Lab opened a satellite location on-site during The National.
Open to the public, the TGR Learning Lab showcased the STEM education of the TGR Foundation.
Different stations focused on the four elements of STEM: science, engineering, technology and math.
The TGR Learning Lab at The National was free for all fans at the tournament.
For over 20 years, TGR Foundation has been unwavering advocates for the transformative power of education. We have a universal vision: giving students in need the right resources for lifelong success in school, their communities and the working world. Through our award-winning STEM curricula, college-access programs, digital platforms and teacher professional development, TGR Foundation offers under-served students the tools and support needed to thrive in school and beyond.
salute to service
TGR Live and The National have been leaders in military appreciation efforts. Since the inaugural National in 2007, no tournament on the PGA TOUR has done more to honor the military than The National. Between the Lockheed Martin Military Pavilion, the Military Heroes Wall and many other recognitions, The National provides endless opportunities to honor those who have served and their families.
Complimentary military tickets
As a thank you to the men and women of our armed forces, The National is proud to offer complementary tickets for all active, reserve, retired and National Guard members.
Lockheed Martin Military Pavilion
Complementary military tickets provide access to the grounds at TPC Potomac and access to the Military Pavilion.
Military flagstick holders
To further recognize our armed forces, an American flag pin flag will be featured on the green in front of the Lockheed Martin Military Pavilion. The pin flag is attended by a member of the military.
Eighteen members of the military representing the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard will serve as starters on the No. 1 and No. 10 tees during tournament week.
During The National Official Pro-Am, enlisted military personnel from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., will wear special camouflaged bibs and serve as caddies for PGA TOUR pros on one hole during their round.
Military Heroes Wall
The Military Heroes Wall is a cornerstone attraction at The National. Donning flags and seals from each branch of the military, the Military Heroes Wall offers fans the opportunity to write their own message of thanks and appreciation to the men and women who are currently serving our country.
Camo lanyard program
The camouflage lanyard programs provides all active duty and retired military members with an exclusive camouflage lanyard to wear during the tournament.

I spend my days as the head chef at TPC Potomac. But this story is about the most important meal I cook each year. It’s not a meal I cook at the club, but one I cook for a very special type of club.

One of my most memorable moments in golf did not occur in a tournament or even a round of golf but rather a casual conversation on the putting green at the Naval Academy Golf Course in July 2000.

It was the greatest honor of my life to serve six years in the United States Marine Corps. Amidst the trials and tribulations associated with daily military challenges, several years ago I found a week-long escape in an annual volunteer opportunity.
