It’s time for the greatest tournament on the PGA Tour!
The DEAN & DELUCA Invitational is the longest running event on the PGA Tour still being held at the original site (since 1946). The players of today know they are competing on the same hallowed ground as the great Ben Hogan won the championship five times in his hometown. His legacy permeates the event, and that’s just part of the tradition that helps make the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational what it is, one of the most prestigious events on the PGA TOUR.
