The Rust-Oleum Championship is an event on the Web.com Tour - THE pathway to the PGA TOUR - and is committed to giving back to the community. The Rust-Oelum Championship is partnering with local charities to make a meaningful impact throughout Northern Illinois. The 2017 Rust-Oleum Championship is taking place June 5th - 11th at the Ivanhoe Club!
What is a Birdie?
In golf, a "birdie" is a score of one stroke better than "par" for every hole on the course. "Par" is the normal expected stroke score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, if a player scores a 4 on a Par 5 hole, the player gets a birdie.
How It Works
Participants can either make a one-time flat donation (minimum $50), or make a pledge of $0.05 or more for each birdie made by the Web.com Tour players during the 2017 Rust-Oleum Championship. For example, if a person were to pledge $0.05 per birdie during the Rust-Oleum Championship and there were 1,000 birdies made, that person would donate $50.00. The Rust-Oleum Championship is estimating that there could be on average 1,200 birdies from Thursday through Sunday during the tournament rounds. In 2016, 1,620 birdies were scored throughout the tournament.
