OWASSO, Okla. – The fifth annual Patriot Cup is returning to Oklahoma on this month.

On May 26 the Patriot Golf Club is bringing together PGA TOUR stars, celebrities, and military members for a heroic round of golf with proceeds benefiting Folds of Honor Foundation.

Tickets for the event are $20 for adults and free for children 16 and under.

Active and non-active military personnel with military ID also get in for free.

Tickets are available at Tulsa-area QuikTrips and can also be purchased on the day of the event at Stone Canyon Elementary School

The Patriot Cup pairs TOUR players and celebrities with active or non-active military golfers and Folds of Honor partners.

The competition will be filmed by NBC Sports/Golf Channel and will air the week of Veteran’s Day in November on Golf Channel.

“The Patriot Cup serves as a reminder that freedom is not free: because of the sacrifices made by our service men and women, we can enjoy liberties like the game of golf,” said Rooney, a former F-16 fighter pilot and PGA Professional. “Bringing golf stars like Rickie Fowler, Bo Van Pelt and others to Owasso gives our local community the opportunity to spend Memorial Day watching a star-studded round of golf while celebrating and supporting those who serve our country.”

The event draws many top names in golf as well as other celebrity participants.

Some of those committed for 2014 are Rickie Fowler, Bo Van Pelt, Corey Pavin, Gary Woodland, Mickey Tettleton, Michael Breed and NFL quarterback Brandon Weeden.

This year the tournament adds a father-son component with Bob and Kevin Tway and Jay and Bill Haas.
