PURE Insurance Championship

Impacting The first Tee

The newly-named PURE Insurance Championship will continue to bring together the legends of the game alongside top juniors from The First Tee. The tournament is an official PGA TOUR Champions event. It’s the first of its kind in which junior golfers from The First Tee play alongside PGA TOUR Champions players as well as amateurs. They compete for the pro-junior title at legendary Pebble Beach Golf Links and Poppy Hills Golf Course. The tournament is televised internationally on Golf Channel.

For one week, legends of the game mentor the leaders of tomorrow.
