The Hoag Classic, Orange County’s only official PGA TOUR Champions event, premieres from March 6 to 10. Golf legends will be competing for the $1.8 million purse at the Newport Beach Country Club. As one of the most successful philanthropic events on the PGA TOUR Champions, the tournament has generated more than $20 million in its history. This year, newly minted as the Hoag Classic, the tournament’s net proceeds will benefit Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian’s programs and services, as well as other local charities.

Golf legends such as Fred Couples, John Daly, Bernhard Langer, and Mark O’Meara are expected to compete with more than 80 players in the tournament.
