Chris Cooley helps support the FedExCup® Fore!Ever campaign.
Washington Redskin’s Tight End Chris Cooley, members of Congress, and junior golfers from The First Tee, all joined together recently to help support the FedExCup® Fore!Ever campaign launch at Langston Golf Course. The campaign is part of the FedEx commitment to environmental sustainability. The campaign promotes sustainable golf practices and helps fund eco-friendly improvements to golf courses around the nation that host FedExCup PGA TOUR tournaments. Cooley helped announce the campaign’s plans and planted a tree with the local junior golfers, Congressman John Tanner (Tennessee) and Kathryn Rand from FedEx. Other partners of this campaign include The PGA Tour, Audubon International and The First Tee, one of golf’s premiere youth charitable organizations.
Members of Congress then took a tour of the newly unveiled first all-electric FedEx parcel delivery truck and participated in The First Tee of Washington D.C. golf scramble fundraiser. Who shot the lowest score? No one is talking — having a low handicap can be a handicap come election time. Although, with President Obama improving his game, it might come in handy during some golf course bi-partisan diplomacy.
