The 24 players taking a swing at Presidents Cup victory won’t take home a paycheck from the competition.
Money generated at the international golf contest that runs through Sunday, Oct. 6, at the Muirfield Village Golf Club will go to charities around the world and a few locally.
Presidents Cup Director Matt Kamienski said all PGA events are nonprofit events.
“They are held and hosted to support local communities,” he said.
The 2011 Presidents Cup donated $4.5 million to nonprofits, and over the years more than 425 charities in 16 different countries have benefited, Kamienski said.
