US Bank partners with PGA Tour Golfer Collin Morikawa to support youth


U.S. Bank has announced a special birdie challenge with PGA Tour golfer Collin Morikawa to benefit Youth on Course. U.S. Bank will donate funds to cover the cost of five Youth on Course memberships for each birdie made during the 2023 PGA Tour regular season and playoffs.

“This is a fun way to team up with U.S. Bank and support the future of golf,” Morikawa said.

“It all starts with access and if we can do our part to support these young people and get them on a golf course, that is a win. I’ll be working hard to rack up the birdie total this season in hopes that we can get even more young people interested in this great game.”

Youth on Course is a California-based non-profit that gives its members access to rounds of golf for $5 or less at nearly 2,000 participating courses across the country. Through its caddie program, paid high school internships, and college scholarships, the organization also assists young people.

“We're incredibly appreciative of U.S. Bank and their investments in the communities we serve,” said Adam Heieck, Youth on Course Chief Executive Officer. “Together, we can create access to new opportunities that wouldn't otherwise have existed.”

U.S. Bank will collaborate with Youth on Course to identify young people who will benefit the most from these memberships.

“We are excited to continue teaming up with Collin Morikawa on making a difference in our communities,” said Chris Lee, senior vice president of sponsorships for U.S. Bank.

“This is certainly a unique opportunity to help more youth gain access to the game of golf in partnership with Youth on Course.”
