Brian Stewart started swinging at 8 p.m. Monday, and just kept right on going.

Glow-sticks, a glow-ball and a little bit of moonlight led the way.

Golf is Brian's profession, his passion and on his home course Tuesday, he showed his patriotism.

"For our freedom here in the country, it's priceless, so I thought what better way to do than help support this and give back," Stewart said.

Patriot Golf Day was founded by a former fighter-pilot who is also a PGA professional. Stewart and others are following his lead all across the country.

In seven years time, these solo marathons have raised more than $20 million toward some 7,500 scholarships for the children of American heroes.

Brian's wife, Jessie, and their son Maddox were out supporting Brian Tuesday.

"I think it's amazing, and very proud of him in what he's doing, and what awareness he's raising for an amazing foundation," Jessie said.

Brian says the most he'd ever played in a day was 36. Also throw in the fact he injured his wrist during a tournament a week ago.

"I didn't know if I was going to be able to do this, so I just taped it up, Advil, and let it fly," Brian said.
