Due to recent devastating news of flooding that has hit certain parts of the Midwest, the PGA Tour has created a Flood Relief Fund aimed to assist relief efforts. pga tour commissioner tim finchem

PGA Tour players, themselves, have made contributions to help with the flood relief efforts in the Midwest. To fuel the move, the PGA Tour aims to channel the raised funds to PGA Tour Charities and those funds will then be redirected to the relief organizations that deserve the help.

As part of their fund-raising efforts, the PGA Tour has created an area in their website http://www.pgatour.com/floodrelief that is dedicated to their project. That way, if there are any interested individuals and organizations who would like to add their donations, they can easily access information as to where and what to do. In addition to this move, the Tour members will also be given the opportunity to donate a portion of their pro-am money, which will be matched by the PGA Tour. The PGA Tour is also prepared to match a certain percentage of all PGA Tour prize money that players are willing to donate.

Tim Finchem, PGA Tour Commissioner has said the following:

“As the scope of the devastation in America’s Heartland reveals itself, many in the golf community have expressed a strong desire to provide assistance to those in the flood-ravaged areas. A number of those individuals who have already expressed a desire to assist are directly-affected members of the PGA Tour. Therefore, the PGA Tour Flood Relief Fund will provide its players, fans, other major golf organizations, tournaments and sponsors a significant way to help ease the suffering being felt by so many.”
