Chevron’s Eagles For Education July 12, 2012 By USGA


Chevron and the USGA have teamed up for a special charitable initiative that donates $10,000 for every eagle made at the U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Senior Open to Eagles for Education®.

This initiative helps fund golf-related science, technology, engineering and math-enriched educational programs, with a total annual minimum commitment of $500,000.

At last month’s U.S. Open, a total of 24 eagles and one double eagle were recorded for a total donation of $260,000. The double eagle by Nick Watney was worth $20,000. At the recently completed U.S. Women’s Open, 10 eagles were made and the U.S. Senior Open witnessed 29 eagles to bring the final total to $750,000.

Eagles for Education is part of Chevron’s broad support as an official partner of the USGA, where the two organizations will work together to provide student-friendly content and unique experiences that showcase the science behind golf to drive interest in STEM education, while introducing young people to many of the fundamental elements of the game.
