Veteran Golfer Liang Wen-Chong donated half of his money to relief efforts for the horrific Typhoon Haiyan.

Veteran Asian Tour player Liang Wen-Chong seems like he was living the life after winning over $130,000 after winning the Manilla Masters. It also however seems that he has a heart as well as he donated half of those earnings to relief efforts for Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines where young golf star Jason Day lost eight relatives. He won the tournament in a playoff and he seemed to not just stop there. “I was really affected by what I saw of the damage and victims suffering from the aftermath of the typhoon … I decided to donate 50 percent of my winnings to do my part and support the relief efforts,” said Liang according to Eye on Golf. That’s really awesome that you see a young golfer who just won a ton of money donate half of it to something that needs as much attention as it can get. Xtreme Golf Tweet also reported the news .

So, what do you think about this? It’s one of heart warming golf stories so far and it’s so good to see that someone would take the time and do such a thing in such a tragic time. It shows that golf is good in so many ways because there are so many golfers, fans and media personalities around the world that can make a difference including some of fantastic behind the scenes people who help as well. There’s more people involved with golf more than arguably any sport in the world maybe besides soccer. So that’s thousands and thousands of people who can help. Liang has 73 career made cuts, 15 career top 10’s and a couple of wins under his belt and that’s on the European Tour. He is widely regarded as the best golfer in China. Great job Liang!
