Championships

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.

BMW Championship

2018 BMW Championship

Aronimink Golf Club, Newton Square, Pennsylvania

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.

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.

Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship

Exmoor Country Club, Highland Park, Illinois

July 9-15, 2018

The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship is one of the five majors on the PGA TOUR Champions. Seventy-eight players will compete in the event, the winner earning an exemption into the field at The 2019 PLAYERS Championship. As one of the five majors, the event plays a large role in determining Charles Schwab Cup points, and who will be the Charles Schwab Cup Champion at the end of the year.

Since 1992, the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship has raised over $11 million for charity. The WGA-supported Evans Scholars Foundation has been selected as a primary beneficiary of the 2018 Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship.
