What is Birdies for Charity?


Birdies for Charity is a pledge drive sponsored by The The Players Championship (The Players), in connection with the PGA Tour, in an effort to help local charities and non-profit organizations.  It is also a way to win so,me great prizes along with giving back to the community. Birdies for Charity runs January 5th - May 10th, 2016.

How does it work?


It's simple, make a donation of at least $20. The participant will make a guess on the total number of birdies that will be shot during The Players Championship tournament and the number of balls hit in the water at the 17th hole. If you guess the correct amount or are the closest, you could win some great prizes (see below).  In the event of a tie, the tie breaker will be whoever guesses the total number of balls hit in the water on Hole #17. The minimum donation to make a guess is $20, but all donations are welcomed! To make your pledge, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and use our secure online form or download and print a manual form.
