How does Birdies for Charity work?
Every birdie made during the Principal Charity Classic means bucks for charity! There are two ways to pledge: A per-birdie amount for every birdie made by the Champions Tour players during the three-day Principal Charity Classic, or a one-time flat donation.
- Minimum per-birdie $.05
- Minimum flat donation $25.00
- Birdies made in 2016: 883
For example, a pledge of $.05 per birdie: $.05 x 883 birdies in 2016 =$44.15
What is a Birdie? A "birdie" is a score of one stroke better than "par" for any golf hole on the course. "Par" is the normal expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, on a par 4 hole, a score of 3 is a birdie.
