USFWS Fisheries reports that Johnny Morris, the founder of Bass Pro Shops made a generous donation of more than $1,500,000 to the National Fish Habitat Partnership Program at the U.S. Open Bass Fishing Championship in Missouri this month at Table Rock Lake.

I believe that total is the net proceeds of the Bass Pro Shops US amateur open! That is the amount raised for the cause and since Johnny Morris is the founder of BPS he cut the check!
