How it Works
Participants can either make a one-time flat donation (minimum $10), or make a pledge of $0.02 or more for each birdie made by Champions Tour players during the 2012 Allianz Championship during tournament play February 6-12, 2012.
Every birdie made during the Allianz Championship equals money for charity! Make a pledge and 100% of your donation will go directly to the charity of your choice.
There are two ways to pledge:
A per-birdie for every birdie made by the Champions Tour players during the three-day Allianz Championship or a one-time flat donation.
Minimum per-birdie: $0.02
Minimim flat donation: $10
For example, a pledge of $0.02 per birdie: $0.02 x 800 birdies = $16
The number of birdies can fluctuate due to unforeseeable conditions.
What is a Birdie?
In golf, a "birdie" is a score of one stroke better than "par" for every golf hole on the course. "Par" is the normal expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, if a player scores a 4 on a par 5 then he gets a birdie.
