Also, Mackenzie Tour hopeful and Saskatoon native Liam Courtney will be donating 15 dollars for every birdie, when he tees it up at Mackenzie Tour Qualifying School in three weeks time at The Club at Eaglebrooke in Lakeland, Florida.
Courtney’s contribution will also be matched by his home course, Waskesiu Golf Course in Waskesiu, Saskatchewan. As they pledged to donate 20 dollars for every birdie that he makes.
