CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT HISTORY & RECORDS
The Tennessee Section of the PGA of America (TPGA) conducts 10 events for its members, plus the Tennessee PGA Junior for boys and girls, and jointly conducts the Tennessee Challenge Cup with the amateur body—the Tennessee Golf Association. One event, the Players Tournament, is open to the better amateur players too.
The Tennessee Golf Association (TGA) conducts 21 state championships for amateur golfers—men, women, boys, and girls in addition to the State Parent-Child that entertains eligible professionals and the jointly-sponsored Tennessee Challenge Cup.
The Tennessee Golf Foundation (TGF) is involved fund-raising tournaments across the state; however its biggest contribution is the 100-plus Sneds Junior Tour tournaments conducted from Bristol to Memphis each summer. The TGF’s two statewide tournaments are the Sneds Tournament of Champions for boys and girls and the Tennessee Junior Cup for boys and girls.
The History Section tracks every TPGA, TGA, and TGF event, including the most current results of the tournament, a brief history of the tournament, a listing of past champions and sites by year, its multiple winners, and the tournament records.
