2022 TOURNAMENT FACT SHEET

 Cologuard Classic
Event:

The Cologuard Classic is an annual event on the PGA TOUR Champions schedule. In 2021, Kevin Sutherland shot 15-under par and captured his fifth PGA TOUR Champions title of his career. Sutherland trailed by two shots with three holes to play before birding Nos. 16 and 17 to win by two over Mike Weir. The 2022 tournament will mark the fifth year as the Cologuard Classic, named after Wisconsin-based Exact Sciences’ noninvasive at-home colon cancer screening test for average-risk individuals 45 years or older, and the eighth year the Conquistadores have partnered with the PGA TOUR Champions.
Tournament week is used as a platform to support critical messaging tied to colon cancer awareness, with PGA TOUR Champions players and the Tucson Conquistadores participating in a pledge to get screened for colon cancer. And, while the tournament message reaches a national audience, locally, the Cologuard Classic impacts the lives of many colon cancer survivors, advocates and caregivers. Over the past seven years, charity and community impact have been at the core of the event, with the Exact Sciences partnership taking those efforts to new heights in recent years. The First Tee Tucson and Tucson Conquistadores provide children in need with the character-building experience of participating in sports. Since 1962, the Conquistadores have contributed more than $36.5 million to youth athletic programs.

About Cologuard:
Cologuard was approved by the FDA in August 2014, and results from Exact Sciences' prospective 90-site, point-in-time, 10,000-patient pivotal trial in adults 50 years of age or older were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in March 2014. Cologuard is included in the American Cancer Society's (2018) colorectal cancer screening guidelines and the recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (2016) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (2016). Cologuard is indicated to screen adults 45 years of age and older who are at average risk for colorectal cancer by detecting certain DNA markers and blood in the stool. Do not use Cologuard if you have had precancer, have inflammatory bowel disease and certain hereditary syndromes, or have a personal or family history of colorectal cancer. Cologuard is not a replacement for colonoscopy in high-risk patients. Cologuard performance in adults ages 45-49 is estimated based on a large clinical study of patients 50 and older. Cologuard performance in repeat testing has not been evaluated.

The Cologuard test result should be interpreted with caution. A positive test result does not confirm the presence of cancer. Patients with a positive test result should be referred for diagnostic colonoscopy. A negative test result does not confirm the absence of cancer. Patients with a negative test result should discuss with their doctor when they need to be tested again.

Medicare and most major insurers cover Cologuard. For more information about Cologuard, visit www.cologuard.com. Rx Only.
