Evans Scholars Invitational
WGA, Web.Com Tour partner on new event
The Web.com Tour and the Western Golf Association will partner to conduct the Evans Scholars Invitational, which will make its debut on the Tour in 2019.
The Evans Scholars Invitational, which will be managed by the WGA, will be contested the week of May 20-26, 2019, at The Glen Club in Glenview, Illinois. The new partnership calls for a four-year agreement to run through 2022. All proceeds will benefit the event’s sole charity, the Evans Scholars Foundation.
The tournament will mark a return to The Glen Club for the Web.com Tour, which contested the Bank of America Open at the course from 2002 through 2008. The tournament produced an impressive list of champions, including 2013 PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner (2006) and 2015 Senior Open Championship winner Marco Dawson (2002).
