New for 2019, the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions is one of the most unique events on the LPGA Tour, bringing together the world’s top professional women golfers to play side-by-side with world-class celebrities.
As an official LPGA event, the tournament will open the 2019 season and start the race to the CME Globe, featuring the top LPGA field in the world. Only winners from the past two LPGA seasons qualify to play, so competition will be tough and the stakes high with $1.2 million in official prize money on the line. The LPGA pros will play 72 holes of stroke play with no cut, and be joined on the course by 45 sports and entertainment celebrities competing for their own $500,000 purse. Ten amateur golfers, who qualify during the event’s pro-am, will also have the opportunity to play alongside the stars during official tournament rounds.
The LPGA Tour hasn’t had a champion’s tournament in more than a decade, but the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions is bringing it back with an event unlike any other. All four days of official play will be nationally televised, with Thursday and Friday on Golf Channel and Saturday and Sunday on network NBC. But nothing will beat catching the competition live at Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Resort Orlando from January 16-20, 2019. With evening events and concerts, a world-class field of players, and unforgettable action, you won’t want to miss the inaugural comeback event.
