"Our players have endorsed the idea of leaving behind a significant amount of money in the communities": PGA Tour reaches $2 billion in charitable giving.
"In 1938, the PGA Tour made its first charitable donation, $10,000 coming at the Palm Beach Invitationals. Wednesday, commissioner Tim Finchem announced the Tour will surpass $2 billion in charitable giving at this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, with more than $133 million coming last season. By comparison, the NFL has awarded nearly $370 million to charity in the last 40 years, according to the NFL Foundation." -- Steve DiMeglio, USA Today
