October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month involving thousands of organizations supporting the education, detection, prevention and treatment of breast cancer. Many golf companies have teamed up with organizations to donate a percent of sales and help spread awareness. From apparel to golf accessories and more, we collected some of our favorite golf products that have a specific charitable piece for breast-cancer awareness.
