At the end of the tournament, funds will be tallied up based on total donations. The 15 organizations that raise the most money (plus 4 randomly selected organizations) will win special bonus bucks. Texas Center for the Missing will receive all of the dollars we raise at the end of the program!


To donate to the Birdies for Charity program:

MAKE A GIFT. GET A GUESS. Make a gift of $20 or more then make a guess of how many “Birdies” will be made by the PGA Tour Pros during the Texas Children’s Houston Open.

Some prior year total Birdies to consider are:

2022: 1,191
2021: 1,071

Guess the Birdies Contest

ENTER FOR A CHANCE TO WIN AN ASTROS SUITE! With each donation, donors have the opportunity to guess the number of birdies that will be made by PGA Tour Pros during the Texas Children’s Houston Open.

One grand prize will be given to the person who guesses the correct number of Birdies. In case of a tie, a single winner will be randomly selected. One lucky supporter of the Texas Children’s Houston Open Birdies for Charity program will win an Astros Suite Night at Minute Maid Park.
