Sponsored by Cologuard, a noninvasive at-home cancer screening test, this year’s event name has been updated to welcome our new title sponsor. Although the name has changed, spectators can still anticipate the same quality programming they have come to enjoy throughout the tournament’s decades of successful history.
The action-packed Cologuard Classic will see 78 of the best PGA players come to Tucson and duke it out to take home the cash prize and 255 Charles Schwab Cup points—plus, a chance to don the impressive conquistador-style Champions’ Helmet as a trophy.
