Chevron’s Eagles for Education
VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, N.C. – Chevron and the USGA are partners for a special charitable initiative that donates $5,000 for every eagle and $10,000 for every double eagle or hole-in-one made at the U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Senior Open to Eagles for Education.
The initiative helps fund golf-related STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enriched educational programs, with a total annual minimum commitment of $500,000.
The 2014 U.S. Open, which concluded on Sunday at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club’s Course No. 2, featured 22 eagles. The amounts were quadrupled for Sunday’s final round, so two eagles and a hole-in-one by Zach Johnson accounted for $80,000 of the total contribution of $175,000.
