The Cologuard Classic features an 78-player field competing for a $1.7 million purse with $255,000 and 255 Charles Schwab Cup points for the winner. The no-cut format includes three days of competition (Friday-Sunday) with players participating in pro-am events on Wednesday and Thursday. Tournament proceeds benefit youth athletic programs in Southern Arizona.
A longtime presence on tour, Jerry Kelly is known for a blue-collar work ethic and grinder mentality befitting his Midwestern roots. The Madison native is in the top 35 all time on the PGA Tour money list, with more than $30 million in career earnings and 11 professional victories.
In June of 2017, Jerry teamed up with Exact Sciences, the makers of Cologuard, to help raise awareness of colon cancer and the importance of regular screening beginning at age 50 for individuals at average risk. The Cologuard booth can be seen at PGA Tour Champions events around the country.
