Wesley Bryan Pledges Donation For Each Birdie

October 25, 2022

PGA Tour’s Wesley Bryan has committed to donating $100 to the Butterfield Bermuda Championship Birdies for Charity Programme every time he makes a birdie throughout this year’s tournament.

A spokesperson said, “This commitment to supporting Bermuda’s charities highlights the willingness and efforts of PGA TOUR players to ensure the host locations benefit from its endeavours to create a long-lasting impact on every local community.

“Wesley Bryan earned the first PGA Tour victory of his career with a win in the 2017 RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Bryan edged out Luke Donald by one shot to take the title.

“Bryan made his Bermuda Championship debut in 2020 and will compete in Bermuda again next week. The tournament title has since changed to the Butterfield Bermuda Championship after partnering with co-title sponsors; Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] and Butterfield, and these partners welcome Bryan’s fundraising efforts and thank him in turn for his support to local Bermuda charities.

“In three days, the gates will open for the 2022 Butterfield Bermuda Championship at Port Royal Golf Course. The tournament commences on Thursday, October 27 and concludes on Sunday, October 30. The 2022 Championship aims to exceed its 2021 fundraising total of $646,792 and is appreciative of all support of the Birdies for Charity Programme.

“Those hoping to support Bermuda’s local charities can see their donations go further through the Birdies for Charity programme on the tournament website. Every contribution of any amount will be matched up to 10% of the donation value by the fundraising initiative. The Birdies for Charity programme, established by the PGA TOUR in 1971, is an integral part of many official PGA TOUR tournaments and helps to raise millions of dollars for the host communities.

“Local charities participating in the Birdies for Charity programme can be found on the tournament website. When processing an online donation, a dropdown of registered charities will appear. Multiple donations to multiple charities can be made in one transaction. Charities that wish to get involved can reach out to Community Outreach Manager, Dede Cooper at dede@butterfieldbdachampionship.com.

“To donate, please visit www.butterfieldbdachampionship.com/donate-now. The tournament is running a giveaway competition. The person to make the largest donation to the Birdies for Charity Programme throughout tournament week [Monday 24-Sunday 30] will receive a diamond and tanzanite necklace from Diamonds International Bermuda.”
