As expected, the “Pink Out” tribute on Saturday at Colonial was a huge success. It looks like just about everyone from players, caddies, fans and commentators pinked it out in full force. I have say that David Feherty’s outfit gets a big fat A+. That’s what I call a fashion statement – not to mention – for a worthy cause.
Amy Mickelson said via Phil’s website, “We have been home watching the golf at Colonial surrounded by loved ones. Everytime we see a player, caddy, announcer, or fan wearing pink we are overwhelmed by the love and support we feel.”
Without a doubt, it was a very heartwarming gesture by all to show their support for Amy and others fighting breast cancer. It’s inspiring to see the impact of what a large group of individuals can accomplish when they rally together for a common goal.
I know that many players have established foundations that give back to various communities and charities. But I think it would be great if the PGA (and other Tours) would organize campaigns like the Pink Out on a regular basis. Imagine the difference a group effort would bring about for other important and deserving causes.
