Parrott to compete in Patriot All-America Invitational

Gracie Parrott, the daughter of Walt and Deana Coffey-Parrott, and granddaughter of 5th district magistrate Billy Dean Coffey, is among a select few top collegiate women's golfers who will tee off in the Patriot All-America Invitational at the Wigwam Golf Resort in the last week of December.

The Patriot All-America Invitational will feature a Women's Division for the first time ever in 2021. Dubbed "College Golf's Bowl Game," the 11th annual edition will include 42 of college golf's best women players, in addition to 84 of the best men's collegiate players, December 28-31, 2021, at the Wigwam Golf Resort in Litchfield Park, AZ.

All participants in the Patriot All-American play in honor of a fallen or severely injured soldier, by carrying a golf bag bearing the soldier's name. Participants receive a card with the soldier's story, so they can be familiar with who that person was, what they represented and how they were killed or wounded in action. The Patriot All-America has been honoring fallen or severely wounded soldiers in this unique way since the event's inception in 2011.

Gracie Parrott will be playing in honor of Russell Edward Madden, an Army Specialist from Bellevue, Kentucky. SPC Madden died on June 23, 2010, in a rocket-propelled grenade attack on his convoy in Afghanistan, during Operation Enduring Freedom. He was only 29 years old.


The Patriot All-America is regarded as a top amateur event nationally, attracting PING All-America golfers from all three NCAA Divisions, NAIA and NJCAA rankings as well as from universities outside the United States.

The 54-hole amateur event is the first of its kind to combine the talents of 126 nationally recognized men and women golfers simultaneously at one tournament. All three rounds of the tournament will be livestreamed at patriotallamerica.com.

Parrott, a Greensburg, KY, native, is a Junior majoring in Business at Campbellsville University. She made news earlier this year when she won the NAIA Individual National Championship at Rose Creek Golf Course in Oklahoma City, OK.
