A total of 24 eagles, including a hole-in-one, and one double eagle were recorded in the 2012 U.S. Open.

Each eagle meant another $10,000 contribution from the USGA and Chevron as part of Eagles for Education®, a charitable initiative through which Chevron will donate $10,000 for every eagle scored during the U.S. Open, U.S Women’s Open and U.S. Senior Open to help fund golf-related science, technology, engineering and math-enriched educational programs, with a total annual minimum commitment of $500,000. A $20,000 donation was made for Nick Watney's double eagle.

Eagles for Education is part of Chevron’s broad support as an official partner of the USGA, where the two organizations will work together to student-friendly content and unique experiences that showcase the science behind golf to drive interest in STEM education, while introducing young people to many of the fundamental elements of the game.
