Wonderkid Ryo Ishikawa has pledged to give every single cent he earns in 2011 to victims of the earthquake and tsunami in his home countryof Japan.
Japanese news agent Kyodo News reported that the 19-year-old sensation Ishikawa will also be pledging money for every birdie he makes
If he plays as well as he did last year he could end up donating more than $2 million to relief in Japan.
He made just under $2 million in prize money last year, including all his earnings from finishing third on the Japan Tour Money List and money from the Majors and World Golf Championship events. He also made 341 birdies last year, and his pledge of 100 000 Yen per birdie would add up to around another $400 000 that he would be donating.
What a nice guy, reckon his girlfriend won't be too pleased if he ends up winning a Major though.
