Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, and Annika are coming back to The Woodlands, Texas and they are bringing 12 additional legends of the game with them for the Folds of Honor Greats of Golf on April 29, 2023 – an annual tradition held in conjunction with the Insperity Invitational presented by UnitedHealthcare.
The Folds of Honor Greats of Golf exhibition is a spectator-friendly 9-hole scramble featuring 16 golf legends during the second round of the Insperity Invitational. The distinguished group of golf’s greats will tee it up for the 10th time at The Woodlands Country Club Tournament Course for the special Saturday competition that will be a feature event in the tournament’s 20th anniversary celebration.
“We feel very privileged to have the opportunity to bring the greatest names in the game of golf back to the Houston area thanks to the support of our new partner, Folds of Honor, during this milestone celebration for our tournament. This collection of legends are true ambassadors and role models in our sport,” said Bryan Naugle, Executive Director, Insperity Invitational. “Not only is this a great group of golfers, they are incredible people and special role models for all of us. Reuniting these extraordinary ambassadors of our game has become a staple of tournament week. They provide hours of entertainment and a lifetime of memories for our fans each year.”
The distinguished group includes 13 World Golf Hall of Famers who have combined for 234 PGA TOUR victories, 156 LPGA TOUR victories, 77 major championship titles, and 158 PGA TOUR Champions wins. Six of these players have won six or more major championships: Nicklaus (18); Annika (10); Player (9); Inkster (7); and both Bradley and Trevino (6).
The players will be grouped in foursomes and play a scramble format. Each group will feature one of the greatest women’s golfers ever to play the game.
