Chevron's Eagles for Education June 29, 2013 By USGA

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 68th U.S. Women’s Open, which concluded on Sunday at Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y., featured 11 eagles, for a total U.S. Women’s Open contribution of $55,000. Below were the eagles recorded in the 2013 U.S. Women’s Open:

Christel Boeljon (par-5 8th hole, round 1)

Rachel Rohanna (par-5 8th hole, round 1)

Between the U.S. Women’s Open and the U.S. Open, the cumulative donation to Eagles for Education in 2013 is now $250,000. The U.S. Senior Open will be played at Omaha (Neb.) Country Club Nebraska, from July 11-14.

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.
