One-Legged Marine Golf is a lifestyle brand. Everyone's
lifestyle! Not just golfers, not just Marines, and certainly not just those who have lost a leg. Everyone has a One-Legged Marine in their life, with their own "handicap" (golf, physical, emotional, or mental) !
Let's explain! Our very good friend, golf partner and literal One-Legged Marine, Chris Nowak, lives life to the fullest, in spite of his life-changing accident (see box below for his story). With his sarcastic personality and witty warmth, we labeled him the One-Legged Marine and a new identity was born. It is our term of endearment for a person who has experienced severe hardship, yet they have chosen to rise above it and live their best life, in spite of physical pain, emotional scars and more.
Chris may be the motivation for the brand, but we want everyone to tell their story! Purchase our gear and proudly share your battle scar tale!
So…. Who's your One-Legged Marine? What's your handicap?
Our good friend and literal One-Legged Marine! Chris lost the lower portion of his right leg during his service to our country. His sense of humor, zest for life and love of golf is exactly what the One-Legged Marine Golf brand is about.
Chris currently serves as the PGA HOPE Military and Veteran Liaison. PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. One-Legged Marine Golf is proud to be a sponsor of PGA HOPE!
He served for 6 years as an infantry squad leader in the U.S. Marine Corps, until he lost the lower portion of his right leg during his tour of duty.
His heart belongs to God, Country, Corps, his wife Kelly, Family, and Friends. Semper Fi!
