MEXICO CITY – In February, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake shook south and central Mexico, including Mexico City, which also endured an earthquake in September that caused 228 deaths.

On Wednesday, Jon Rahm, who is from Spain and was a fan favorite last year at the WGC-Mexico Championship when he tied for third place, announced he would be donating $1,000 for each birdie and $3,000 for every eagle he makes this week to the Mexican Red Cross to help with ongoing recovery efforts.

Excited to kick off the week here in Mexico City. With the recent earthquakes that hit the Mexico City area I’m going to donate to the Mexican Red Cross for every birdie and eagle I make this week. Let’s make it a great week!

During last year’s FedExCup playoffs, Rahm donated $1,000 for each birdie and $2,000 for every eagle to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

“Like I did during the FedExCup, because of the last earthquake that happened in Mexico and the past earthquakes in the last few months, I want to donate some money to the Mexican Red Cross for all these people in need,” Rahm said. “I feel like, as a Hispanic and Latino, I want to help out this community. … Let’s hope I can make a lot of them and can donate as much money as possible.”
