The PGA Korn Ferry Tour tournament was scheduled for April 30-May 3 but was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. When it returns in 2021, the tournament will be managed by the Tennessee Golf Foundation. The foundation's president, Whit Turnbow, will serve as the executive director, and the event either will return to Nashville Golf and Athletic Club or move to The Grove, a Greg Norman-designed course in College Grove.The tournament also will remain closely aligned with PGA Tour pro Brandt Snedeker's foundation.
Snedeker has made it clear he hopes the Simmons Bank Open will help pave the way for a PGA Tour event to come to Middle Tennessee, and having the Tennessee Golf Foundation involved could be a step in that direction while also helping his foundation continue to raise funds for local charities.“I’m really excited to have the Tennessee Golf Foundation involved with my hometown event," Snedeker said. "It's a perfect fit. Very rarely do you have two like-minded organizations with a purpose of impacting the local community in a positive way and doing it with integrity. It just so happens the vehicle we are using to raise money and impact the local community is golf. It's a win-win for everyone involved."
