Pro golf phenom will donate all his 2011 winnings to #JapanQuake and tsunami victims: @PGATour

TOKYO (AP) — Golf sensation Ryo Ishikawa says he is giving all of his tournament earnings this year to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in his native Japan. Kyodo News reported Wednesday that the 19-year-old Ishikawa also is pledging money for every birdie he makes. If he plays similar to last year, Ishikawa could wind up giving more than $2 million toward relief efforts. He was No. 3 on the Japan Golf Tour money list in 2010, making just over $1.8 million, which includes his earnings from the majors and World Golf Championship. He led the tour by making 341 birdies last year, which could amount to another $400,000. His pledge was for 100,000 yen for each birdie. Ishikawa won his first pro tournament as a 15-year-old amateur, and already has won nine times in Japan.
