WGC event Is To Be Sponsored By FedEx

Bridgestone’s five-year contract as title sponsor expires this year, and the PGA Tour have announced that the event will now be hosted by TPC Southwind in Memphis, which has been the venue for the FedEx St Jude Classic since 1989.

added: “The World Golf Championships-FedEx St Jude Invitational is a significant milestone not only for FedEx and St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, but also the larger Memphis community.

“We are proud to continue our title sponsorship to benefit St Jude, and we look forward to the many opportunities and positive economic impact a World Golf Championship event will bring to the city.” This season’s FedEx St Jude Classic will go ahead as scheduled the week before the US Open in June, with the final edition of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational being held at Firestone in the week prior to the PGA Championship in August.
