The U.S. Golf Association will shine a spotlight on all of its various 2017 winners with the debut of a new “Celebration of Champions” event that organizers will incorporate into U.S. Open week.
The Tuesday event features a four-hole exhibition of two-player mixed teams, taking place on the back nine at Shinnecock Hills. Defending U.S. Open champ Brooks Koepka won’t play but will serve as co-host alongside Jack Nicklaus.
The exhibition, to be shown as part of FS1’s pre-Open coverage, is slated to become an annual event.
Among those who have committed to the exhibition are Kenny Perry (U.S. Senior Open), Doc Redman (U.S. Amateur), Sophia Schubert (U.S. Women’s Amateur) and Massachusetts firefighter Matt Parziale (U.S. Mid-Amateur).
