Collin Morikawa pledged to donate $1,000 for each birdie he makes on the PGA Tour this August. He will donate to a Maui wildfire recovery fund. Also, three FedEx Cup Playoff events are taking place this month, starting from the FedEx St. Jude Championship.
According to Maui County Mayor Richard Bissen, at least 55 people have perished, and many have been displaced due to the massive damage. It included the complete loss of the ancient whaling hamlet of Lahaina.
Morikawa’s grandfather owned a restaurant in Lahaina, Maui, even though Morikawa was born and reared in California. The PGA Tour claims that the restaurant was destroyed in the flames.
