One of the privileges of being on the PGA Tour is that I have the opportunity to contribute to and raise awareness for a variety of charities. My hope in giving back is that others would be inspired to do the same, but in their own way and for causes that they care for deeply. Together we can all make a difference in the lives of others.

Bubba spends a portion of the year at his residence in Scottsdale, AZ so he felt the need to give back to the Phoenix community by spending a day at the Desert Mission Food Bank packing weekend "snack packs" that are distributed through schools to kids in need.
