If you’re like me, you long to see more pro golfers during NFL halftimes. Well our prayers have been answered. They’re calling it the KPMG Chip For Charity, and it works like this: During halftime of the Monday Night Football game between the Chargers and Broncos on Oct. 15 in San Diego, Phil Mickelson will line up in the end zone and … he’s decided to run it out! He’s tackled at the 5! It looks bad for Phil …
No. Actually Phil will place a ball in one of the end zones and hit hit it at a series of targets in the opposite end zone, which statistics enthusiasts will tell you is a distance of 100 yards.
Based on which target he’s able to hit (we’re assuming there won’t be a Webb Simpson-like Ryder Cup shank), that’s how much his sponsor KPMG will donate to First Book, a non-profit organization which provides new books for children in need.
Dubbed the “KPMG Chip4Charity” on the company’s website, the shot could be worth as much as $1 million or 400,000 books.
Next question: what are these “books” you speak of?
