Ryo Ishikawa to donate all of 2011 earnings to quake relief

Japanese teen golfer Ryo Ishikawa said Tuesday he will donate all of his earnings in 2011 to the victims of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in his country.

In addition to what he earns from the JGTO Tour and major tournaments overseas, Ishikawa will donate 100,000 yen for every birdie he makes.

Ishikawa has earned more than 100 million yen in each of the past three seasons since he turned pro in January 2008 at age 16.

Last year, he made 151 million yen for third place on the Japanese money list and had 341 birdies, the most on the tour.
