Proud Sponsor of PGA Tour Gunther Motor Company

PGA TOUR Champions announces Gunther Motor Company, as sponsor of longstanding Boca Raton event

To be held October 26 - November 1, 2020


BOCA RATON, Florida - PGA TOUR Champions announced today an agreement for Gunther Motor Company, a leading automotive dealership brand known to be America's Largest Volume Volkswagen and Volvo Dealer, to serve as a sponsor of the Tour's longstanding event in Boca Raton. The Championship will return to The Old Course at Broken Sound the week of October 26 - November 1, 2020.

 

The annual PGA TOUR Champions event has been contested in Boca Raton since 2007, producing winners such as World Golf Hall of Fame member Bernhard Langer (2010, 2019) and major champions Tom Lehman (2011), Corey Pavin (2012) and Mark Calcavecchia (2018).

Since its inception, the PGA Championship has generated over $2 million for local charities through the Boca Raton Champions Golf Charities (BRCGC), with the Boca Raton Regional Hospital serving as the primary charitable beneficiary.

 

At the beginning of the season, the Championship was set to make its debut as one of three events in the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, used annually to decide the Tour's season-long champion. Following the onset of COVID-19 and event cancelations stemming from the global pandemic, the 2020 and 2021 seasons were combined to form a singular 2020-21 season, in turn reverting the three events back to full-field, 81-player tournaments. 

 

World Golf Hall of Fame members Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson, as well as 2010 FedExCup Champion Jim Furyk, have all won on Tour this year as rookies. In addition to the trio of winners, Mike Weir, K.J. Choi and Tim Herron have all transitioned to PGA TOUR Champions in 2020, setting up for what could be one of the strongest fields of the year at the PGA Championship.
