Some of the world’s top golfers are in Memphis, Tennessee, this week to participate in the Mid-South’s premier golf tournament—the St. Jude Classic Presented by Smith & Nephew. The event is June 7-13 at TPC Southwind.
The tournament, now in its 53rd year, has supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since 1960, when officials from the event, then known as the Memphis Open, presented a check to hospital founder Danny Thomas. In 1970, St. Jude became the sole beneficiary of the tournament, which has raised more than $23.3 million to support the lifesaving research and treatment at St. Jude.
This year’s event features a lineup of stellar golf professionals, including three winners of golf’s major championships: David Toms, Justin Leonard and Retief Goosen. They are joined by defending champion Brian Gay, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Camilo Villegas, Zach Johnson, Padraig Harrington, Robert Allenby, Boo Weekly and John Daly. In addition, Jordan Spieth, the reigning U.S. Junior Amateur Champion, accepted a sponsor’s exemption to participate.
Want to catch the action? Tickets are on sale at www.stjudeclassic.com or by calling (901) 748-0534.
For Gay, participating in this year’s tournament is even more meaningful since he joined the 2010 Eagles for St. Jude™ fundraising campaign that benefits St. Jude. Through the program, Gay and four other professional golfers—Ben Crane, Morgan Pressel, Vijay Singh and Loren Roberts—have made personal financial commitments to St. Jude during their 2010 tour season. Fans can take part, too, by making a donation or a pledge per eagle at www.eaglesforstjude.org. Since it began in 2007, Eagles for St. Jude has raised more than $4 million.
Practice rounds for the St. Jude Classic began Monday, June 7, followed by the Danny Thomas Pro-Am. The PGA TOUR Wives host their annual picnic at Target House on Tuesday, June 8, while several of the golfers in the tournament will “practice” their putting with patients and siblings at the St. Jude Women’s Club’s golf-a-round at the hospital on Wednesday, June 9.
Tony Thomas, the son of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas, will play in the classic’s Championship Pro-Am on Wednesday. Tournament play begins Thursday, June 10, and will be broadcast on CBS and the Golf Channel.
This year, Smith & Nephew, a global medical technology business, signed on as presenting sponsor for the tournament. “We are extremely pleased that Smith & Nephew, a company that recognizes the positive impact the PGA TOUR’s Memphis tournament has had on the community, will serve as presenting sponsor of the St. Jude Classic,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem.
