WOAY – Hear from The Greenbrier’s Director of Public Relations, Cam Huffman, as he reflects on the past ten years of A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier, previously known as the Greenbrier Classic.
Last week, the PGA Tour and the resort mutually agreed to cancel both the 2020 event (originally scheduled for September) and the remainder of the contract, which would’ve seen the tournament played through 2026. The Classic was first held in 2010, and was held most years during July 4th week, but was moved to the fall in 2019.
Huffman says while it’s disappointing that the PGA Tour will not visit Southern West Virginia for the foreseeable future, he’s focusing on the positives of the best golfers in the world coming to White Sulphur Springs.
Major champions including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Bubba Watson are among those who have played in the tournament in past years. Previous champions, including Xander Schauffele and Joaquin Niemann, are beginning to establish solid careers, in part due to their success on the Old White TPC.
Huffman says there has been no decision yet made on the status of the Greenbrier Champions Tennis Classic, also scheduled for September.
