Over two days, attendees at the "Craftsman Father's Day Miniature Golf Classic" putted enough hole-in-ones to reach the $10,000 goal. While the pros were trying for a win at golf's national championship in Ardmore, Pa., the Craftsman nine-hole miniature golf course was open to the public and taking place nearby in Philadelphia where attendees putted their way around and through obstacles including Craftsman products such as the Craftsman Bolt-On™ system. Other holes featured tools configured into iconic American landmarks.
The "Craftsman Father's Day Miniature Golf Classic" was one stop along the route of the Craftsman "Make a Difference" Tour – a cross-country journey of a 36-foot truck to help rebuild American communities and restore homes of military veterans.
