Oct 31, 2012

Chad Pfeifer, a wounded military veteran and 2011 graduate of Golf Academy of America in Phoenix, won the annual Bush Center Warrior Open golf tournament for the second year in a row with a hole-in-one.

Mr. Pfeifer, pictured above with President Bush, sustained injuries while serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq that required the amputation of his left leg above the knee.

In 2011, Mr. Pfeifer won the National Amputee Championship hosted at Rio Verde Golf Club and the inaugural Bush Warrior event.

He currently works at the Golf Club of Estrella in Goodyear, Arizona. He and his wife, Summer, welcomed their first child, Grady, on June 15, 2012.
