American Express PGA Tour Golf Awaits Big Days After $1M Donation

For the past few years, even with COVID-19 restrictions, the American Express on the PGA Tour has been held every January in the desert.

People representing one of 37 nonprofits receiving donations through Impact Through Golf attend an American Express Helping Hands breakfast at La Quinta Country Club in La Quinta, California on November 17, 2022.

As the tournament prepares for its 64th draw in two months, another tradition continued on Thursday as 37 desert charities took home a total of $1 million in revenue since last January.

“First and foremost, the local aspect is important,” said Pat McCabe, chief executive of The American Express, at breakfast at La Quinta Country Club, one of three courses featured on the PGA Tour event. “Thirty-seven groups have received funds, and we have affected all desert cities. There are so many important bands doing such a great job.”

Charities and nonprofits working in the fields of health and wellness, youth sports, family support, education, and helping the homeless received funds from the tournament through the new Impact Through Golf Fund in its first year of distribution management. The Phil Mickelson Foundation was a charity but no longer participates in the event.
