Published July 4, 2012
FOR CHARITY: U.K. children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent will receive £100,000 ($157,000) from the Irish Open. The charitable arm of The European Tour, the Tour Players Foundation, and the Darren Clarke Foundation joined forces to support CLIC Sargent NI through a Birdie Pledge in which £10 ($15) per birdie, £20 ($31) per eagle and £50 ($79) per albatross made by the players over the four rounds raised a total of £35,620-£17,810 ($56,000-$27,910) from each foundation. Tournament sponsor Brewin Dolphin made a donation of £5,000 ($7,800) while the Caddie Experience with Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey raised £6,000 ($9,400) (European Tour).
