Republished with full copyrights permissions obtained from the Sports Today Magazine.

Collin Morikawa, the renowned golfer and two-time major golf champion, has pledged his support to the victims of the devastating wildfires that have affected the Hawaiian islands, particularly the town of Lahaina on Maui. In a heartfelt gesture, Morikawa has committed to donating $1,000 for every birdie he makes throughout the FedEx Cup Playoffs. This act of generosity showcases Morikawa’s deep connection to Maui, a place he considers a second home.

For Morikawa, Maui holds a significant place in his heart. He reminisces about his grandfather’s restaurant, The Morikawa Restaurant, located on Front Street in Lahaina, which underscores his personal connection to the island. With many family members still residing in Maui, Morikawa is determined to provide support to the local community in their time of need.

It is worth noting that Maui is also home to The Sentry, the inaugural “Signature Event” of the PGA Tour’s 2024 schedule. Since 1999, The Plantation Course at Kapalua has hosted this prestigious tournament. Earlier this year, Morikawa finished as the runner-up to Jon Rahm, demonstrating his prowess on the island.

Although a specific beneficiary has yet to be identified, Morikawa assures that all the donations will reach the right people and organizations involved in the recovery efforts. As the situation evolves, he will share the beneficiary to shed light on their commendable recovery work and provide opportunities for others to offer their support.

As of the FedEx St. Jude Championship, Morikawa finds himself in a promising position. After completing 14 holes, he stands at 5-under for the tournament, just two strokes behind co-leaders Jordan Spieth and Tom Kim. With five birdies already under his belt, Morikawa has already committed $5,000 to the cause, and his continued participation in the FedEx Cup Playoffs presents further opportunities to make a difference.

Collin Morikawa’s commitment to supporting those affected by the wildfires in Maui is a testament to both his charitable spirit and deep-rooted ties to the island community. Through his generous donation of $1,000 for every birdie made during the FedEx Cup Playoffs, he aims to provide much-needed assistance and demonstrate solidarity with the people of Maui during this challenging time. As Morikawa’s performance in the tournament progresses, his contributions will continue to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those affected.
