Campaign Story

Hi, I’m Zachary Parr I’m currently an Active Duty soldier and have served for 13yrs currently I’m station at Fort Meade, MD. This is my Rookie Year as a Long Drive Competitor. So far, I’ve been at every local event that we have had and even placed 2nd at my first national qualifier. I’m currently high on the leader boards and believe I have what it takes to take home number the win in MLD at nationals and place well at worlds.

I’ve always played a little golf but nothing serious until around the age of 20 and had stop at 23 due to military commitments. I restarted playing at the age of 28. I’m pretty much obsessed with building clubs and working on my swing. Due to moving around a lot, it has been hard to find a good group of people who share the same golf passion. One day when practicing at the Arundel Driving range and I saw the ALD flags. After speaking with Kevin, I was immediately hooked. This community has been so supportive and encouraging and I am honored to be a part of the ALD world. I have pushed myself harder this last year to get to Nationals than I even knew was possible. I want to thank everyone in the ALD and the Mid-Atlantic community for the support. I look forward to meeting once a month with the Mid-Atlanitc crew and seeing everyone hit and support each other, it’s a great feeling to be apart of them.

This year I have been working through an injury. I had a compressed Ulnar nerve in my left elbow that made my left hand numb and weak. On June 2nd I was able to get the surgery that I needed and will hopefully be back in Mid-August to compete again. As this is my first year doing Long Drive you can expect there was so expenses that I didn’t really see coming. Any and all funds will go strictly towards gear, and all travel and event expenses.

Favorite Golf Movie:

Tin Cup

Golf Inspiration:

Never really grew up around anyone that played golf, was pretty much on my own. But watching Jamie Sadlowski win the ReMax World Championship as his size was always something I looked up to. Someone my size under 6ft weighing like 165lbs hitting the ball over 380-400yards. Against his competitors that were way bigger than him. Watching him kind of fueled my flame of hitting the ball farther and farther.

Favorite Long Drive Story

Driving all the way down to South Carolina and competing with my Fellow Active and Retired Brothers and Sisters in arms for the MLD Qualifier. I didn’t win but I had a blast. We have so much respect for each other its unreal.
