The PGA Tour’s Honda Classic will be honored at the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association’s 62nd annual National Awards Dinner, which is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, New York. The award is presented to an individual or organization that promotes and supports the game of golf through commercial sponsorship of quality events. Honda is the oldest continuous sponsor on the PGA TOUR. The tournament got its start in 1972 as Jackie Gleason’s Inverrary Classic and was played at Inverrary Country Club in Lauderhill, Florida. Tom Weiskopf, who defeated Jack Nicklaus by one shot, was the first champion.

Since its inception, The Honda Classic has contributed more than $21 million to national and local charities, including the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. Since the Children’s Healthcare Charity took over tournament operations six years ago, it has raised over $1 million annually and last year’s charitable giving exceeded $1.85 million. Barbara and Gary Nicklaus serve as Co-Chairpersons on the Board of Directors of the Children’s Healthcare Charity.
