Message to the Media

PGA TOUR Champions
Welcome to 2019 and the 40th season on PGA TOUR Champions. On behalf of our players, staff, tournaments and sponsors, we would like to thank the members of the media for the coverage you provide. We look forward to working with you in the year ahead. The 2018 season was capped by record-breaking performances by two members of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Vijay Singh closed with a 10-under 61 to win the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship, while Bernhard Langer protected his points lead and won the Charles Schwab Cup for the fifth time. It was an exciting conclusion to the third-annual Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, and the three-event, season-ending series returns in 2019. Comprised of the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, Invesco QQQ Championship and Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the field will again reduce from 72 to 54 to 36 players, with the conclusion giving way to the 2019 Charles Schwab Cup champion.

Our television partners will broadcast each event, with Golf Channel airing coverage of most tournaments. Three events will have network coverage: the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship (NBC), U.S. Senior Open (FOX) and The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex (NBC).

In 2019, we welcome PGA TOUR winners such as Retief Goosen and Angel Cabrera to PGA TOUR Champions as they compete alongside established stars Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Fred Couples and John Daly. Thirty-two members of PGA TOUR Champions are also members of the World Golf Hall of Fame, many of whom are still active on Tour.

Our players are committed to making each tournament week rewarding and enjoyable and they pride themselves on their accessibility and interaction with the media, sponsors and fans. That commitment also extends off the course, with many players and their spouses involved with charitable initiatives of their own – along with those charitable endeavors in the communities served by our tournaments each week.

The extensive charitable mission of the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and Web.com Tour makes a significant impact in communities across the country and we appreciate your efforts in conveying to your readers and viewers how our tournaments continue to generate charitable contributions that touch the lives of so many people.

The digital version of the PGA TOUR Champions Media Guide can be accessed via www.pgatourmedia.com, along with more information, such as the media credential application process, for each specific event of the 2019 season.

We appreciate your continued support of PGA TOUR Champions. The Communications staff at PGA TOUR Headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, as well as our Communications staff on site at each tournament, are ready to assist you with your interview and informational requests. Enjoy the season.
