The P-G-Tour canceled four tournaments this weekend but the tour is donating 2-million dollars to relief funds for victims of Tuesday's terrorist attacks.
That amount could grow if fans choose to donate the price of their tickets instead of getting a refund.
Officials say ticketholders who wish to contribute to the relief funds instead of getting their money back do not need to do anything and the money will go straight to the funds.
