A Sporting Tribute

Every year, Kyle and a group of long-time friends from around the country meet at a different golf course in the U.S. for a very special tournament called The Paternal. During the annual four-day event, the players complete for a trophy, but as Kyle says, the real purpose of the tournament is to “honor some of our players’ beloved fathers who have gone on to meet the Lord.” Over the years, The Paternal golf tournament has been held at courses in Texas, Arizona, Florida, S. Carolina and Colorado.
