The Talon Performance Group (TPG) Logo was designed as a tribute to Rob's Army service.  In 1987, Rob was assigned to the 11th Aviation Group "Talons" in Schwabisch Hall, Germany as a UH-60A Blackhawk Pilot and Platoon Leader.  The Eagle Talons on the logo signify the strength and determination of the American Solider.  The mountains on the background represent the Swabian Alps that made up the local flying area in Southern Germany.  The black and gold colors are the Army Colors.  In 1990, Rob deployed to Saudi Arabia and participated in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm with the 11th Aviation Talons completing the first of multiple combat tours as a pilot.   That's how we got to our logo.  Play Well

TPG Golf's state-of-the-art teaching center opened in January 2020 and was dedicated to Rob's dad George Bannon.  George was a life long lover of the game of golf and passed on his love and passion for the game to his son and grandchildren.  George was a skilled golfer who was a player coach on his 1948 High School State Championship Team at West Warwick High School in Rhode Island.  As a young athlete, George was best known for his boxing skills earning Golden Glove and New England Championship titles in 126 pound weight class.  After retirement, he routinely shot rounds in the 70's and shot his age multiple times including braking 80 at the age of 85. Thanks Dad for the gifts you passed to all of us.
