Welcome to Episode 101 of the Fore Golfers Network Podcast!

This week, we introduce you to a true story of golf literally saving the life of a war hero. The best-selling book that also inspired multiple motion pictures, “Saving Bravo,” tells the harrowing story of Gene Hambleton and his attempted escape from behind enemy lines. It was the largest rescue attempt in the history of the Navy SEALS and his knowledge of golf was the key to his survival. It’s an incredible story about one man’s love of the game and country, leading to his survival and legendary war hero status. You’ll hear the entire story from author Stephan Talty.
