The USGA and Chevron have formed a partnership designed to encourage students in science, technology, engineering and math disciplines (STEM) through the world of golf.
EAGLES FOR EDUCATION:
Chevron is proud to bring its EAGLES FOR EDUCATION® to the U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open and U.S. Senior Open. Through this charitable initiative, Chevron and the USGA will contribute $10,000 for every eagle, and $20,000 for every double eagle scored during the three USGA championships to help fund golf-related educational programs.
Chevron’s STEM Zone™ exhibit was featured at the U.S. Open Championship at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. This unique, student-friendly experience highlighted the science of golf through a variety of learning stations, including one where students gained hands-on experience in aerodynamics and motion to learn how velocity and lift affect a golf ball. The exhibit also demonstrated how to apply slope and acceleration to measure speed on the putting green through the use of a Stimpmeter®.
