Much like in years past, Justin Thomas is using his golf game to help with relief of a natural disaster.
The world No. 4 announced on Twitter Wednesday that he’d be donating $1,000 per birdie and $5,000 per eagle at the Tour Championship to a charity benefiting the victims of Hurricane Florence, which ravaged the Carolinas last week.
In this weeks @playoffinale in Atlanta, I’m playing for those affected by Hurricane Florence! For every birdie I make I’m donating $1,000 to @ConvoyofHope, and for every eagle, I’m donating $5,000.

At a fan's suggestion, Thomas, who has averaged 4.35 birdies per round this season, also pledged to donate $10,000 for a hole-in-one.
I like that idea! Will GLADLY donate 10K for an ace https://t.co/zZ9v7RzTGm— Justin Thomas (@JustinThomas34) September 19, 2018
Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday just south of Wrightsville Beach, N.C., and has left much of the area flooded and without power. At least 37 people have died in storm-related incidents.
