IRVING, Texas (AP) — Former President George W. Bush is set to host his annual golf tournament in Texas for wounded members of the U.S. military.
The Warrior Open, a 36-hole competitive golf tournament for military members wounded since Sept. 11, 2001, begins Tuesday in Irving.
The first day of the two-day tournament will be open only to the 25 active and retired military members selected for the tournament. On Wednesday, a pro-am will feature PGA Tour professionals and the military members.
The tournament is part of the Military Service Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute, housed at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.
This year’s winner will be invited to play in the American Century Championship, a celebrity golf tournament held in July at Lake Tahoe.
