Without the WGA, the game of golf would not be the same
We've been elevating our game since 1899. WGA's golf championships rank among the oldest and most prestigious in the United States. The winning difference is that we use our tournament legacy and reputation to further our charitable mission, the Evans Scholars Foundation.
The BMW Championship world-class tournament is the third of four PGA TOUR events in the drive for the FedExCup. For more than 100 years, the championship's J.K. Wadley trophy has been engraved with the names of golf's greatest legends, including Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. The BMW Championship is the signature fundraising benefit for the Evans Scholars Foundation.
The Hotel Fitness Championship is the first of four tournaments that make up the Web.com Tour Finals.

On the line are 50 PGA TOUR cards for the 2013-14 season, making the Web.com Tour Finals the pathway to the PGA TOUR.
Known as "The Masters of Amateur Golf," the Western Amateur showcases the rising stars of the game. It consistently ranks among the world's top amateur tournaments. The roster of past champions reads like a "Who's Who" of American golf, including eight-time winner Chick Evans, founder of the Evans Scholars Foundation.
Established in 1914, the Western Junior Championship continues to draw the finest junior players from across the United States and the world. This tournament is a testing ground for the top players of the future. The tournament, the oldest national junior championship, is open to competitors, ages 15 to 19, with a handicap of three or less.
"From the very beginning, it was drilled into me that a golf course was a place where character fully reveals itself."
