"It is very exciting to see what is arguably our strongest field ever competing next week at Muirfield Village Golf Club," said Jack Nicklaus, the Tournament Founder and Host. "Over the years we have been very fortunate to receive strong support from the game's top players, which not only ensures that we will have a great event for our patrons, but also enables us to make a positive impact in the community, and shine a light on charity through a collaboration between Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Stephen and Ayesha Curry’s Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation, and the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation. With the golf course in superb condition, it should be a terrific week of competition and I look forward to eventually shaking the winner's hand."
