Think Turkey Make Birdies Count

Who: Think Turkey

What: As an official partner of Golf Canada, Think Turkey is launching its first-ever Make Birdies Count challenge at this year’s RBC Canadian Open and CPKC Women’s Open.

Think Turkey is calling on players to make “turkeys” (three birdies in a row or better) to benefit First Tee Canada, an organization focused on introducing golf to young people, with a donation of up to $15,000. 

Graham DeLaet, Canadian golf broadcaster and PGA Tour player, has signed on as an ambassador for the challenge.

The RBC Canadian open runs June 5 to 11 at Oakdale Golf & Country Club in Toronto, while the CPKC Women's Open is held at Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club in Vancouver from Aug. 21 to 27. 

"Like a delicious turkey dinner, golf brings people of all ages together." said Darren Ference, chair of Turkey Farmers of Canada, in a statement. "We're proud to partner with Golf Canada to support First Tee, which introduces youth to a sport that helps build confidence, character and connections to communities."

Think Turkey is a five-year national campaign aimed at boosting turkey consumption, launched by Turkey Farmers of Canada in partnership with the Canadian Poultry and Egg Processors Council's turkey primary processing sector members in 2019.
