Chevron and the USGA team up 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 34th U.S. Senior Open, which concluded
on Sunday at Omaha Country Club in Omaha, Nebraska, featured 31 eagles and also
an increased contribution by Chevron for eagles made in the third and fourth
rounds, to $15,000 apiece.
There were nine eagles made in the final round
of the U.S. Senior Open, including two by Kirk Triplett. These bring the total
U.S. Senior Open contribution to $335,000 and the final 2013 donation amount to
$585,000. Combined with 2012’s total, Chevron’s two-year donation to Eagles for
Education tops $1.2 million.
Below were the eagles recorded in the final
round of the 2013 U.S. Senior Open:
Gary Wolstenhome (par-4 17th hole)
Jay Don Blake (par-5 6th hole)
Peter Senior (par-4 13th hole)
Rocco Mediate (par-5 6th hole)
Jeff Hart (par-5 6th hole)
Gary Hallberg (par-5 14th hole)

Eagles for Education is part of Chevron’s broad
support as an official partner of the USGA, where the two organizations work
together to implement 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.
