Memphis to Host PGA TOUR Action
7 Jul, 2021
The PGA TOUR is back in Memphis for the 2021 World Golf Championships FedEx-St. Jude Invitational. The tournament is set for August 2-8, 2021 at TPC Southwind. Read on to learn about the history of the event and the exciting roster of this year's qualifiers, and catch the global broadcast on the Golf Channel or CBS.
For over 60 years, Memphis hosted the FedEx St. Jude Classic, a professional golf tournament that benefited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. (In fact, more than $48M has been raised to date for the Memphis-based hospital that treats patients from around the world, regardless of their ability to pay.) In 2018, FedEx took over sponsorship of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational tournament and brought the event to Memphis, rebranding it the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. The tournament field includes the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings. Past tournaments have drawn headliners including Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and last year's winner Justin Thomas.
