Palmer competes in exhibition at The Insperity Championship
Patrons of The Insperity Championship will have an opportunity to see Arnold Palmer play with Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Lee Trevino compete in a special competition Saturday afternoon of tournament week at The Woodlands Tournament Course.
The tournament has created a Greats of Golf competition that will also include Don January, Miller Barber, Gene Littler, David Graham and Dave Stockton.
On Saturday, May 5, this powerful and entertaining group of the game's greatest players will tee off following the last tee time of the official competition. These nine players will play in threesomes and will play an 18-hole scramble format.
"We wanted to do something special for the fans this year and when these gentlemen agreed to participate in this relaxed but competitive format we were ecstatic and so were the players," said Executive Director Bryan Naugle. "This is an incredible opportunity that perhaps will never be matched again."
This group includes five World Golf Hall of Fame members, has a combined total of 256 PGA TOUR victories, 46 major championship titles and 141 Champions Tour wins.
The Insperity Championship offers FREE grounds only admission tickets courtesy of Insperity, The Woodlands Development Company, Woodforest National Bank and HP. The grounds ticket also includes free parking and shuttle service.
