LOUISIANA GOLF ASSOCIATION AND ZURICH CLASSIC ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP

The Louisiana Golf Association (LGA) is pleased to announce a continued partnership with the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and the Fore!Kids Foundation.  This partnership between the governing body of amateur golf in Louisiana and the state’s only PGA TOUR event will serve to strengthen the game of golf in Louisiana.

The Zurich Classic will be played Thursday, April 26 – Sunday, April 29, 2018 at LGA Member Club TPC Louisiana in New Orleans.  The 2018 tournament will once again feature a 2-Man Team Format that consists of two days of Foursome and two days of Four-Ball competition to determine a champion.  This format is exclusively played at the Zurich Classic, and it was a huge it for competitors and fans alike in 2017.  The event continues to garner widespread interest among PGA TOUR members and resulted in several high-profile commitments, including Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Justin Thomas, and Bubba Watson.

“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  The Zurich Classic is a first-class event that raises a tremendous amount of money for children’s charities.  It is an event that embodies the spirit of the game in our state: historic, competitive, and fun…  Both the LGA and the Zurich Classic strive to grow the game and to give back to it as well, so it makes sense for us to work together.  We are also pleased to be able to offer LGA members additional value-added benefits as a result of this partnership,” said LGA Assistant Executive Director Logan Ray.
