PGA Tour Canada announced yesterday that Freedom 55 Financial has been confirmed as the presenting sponsor of the Tour Championship of Canada.
The Tour Championship of Canada, PGA Tour Canada’s marquee event, will be conducted by Golf Canada. The tournament will see the culmination of the race for five Web.com Tour cards earned by the top five on the Order of Merit on Sept. 9-15 at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club in London, ON.
“We’re delighted to solidify the Tour Championship of Canada presented by Freedom 55 Financial as the season finale for 2013,” said PGA Tour Canada President Jeff Monday. “With a quality organization like Freedom 55 Financial, an experienced host in Golf Canada and a tremendous golf course at Sunningdale, we have all the right pieces in place for an outstanding finish to our inaugural season.”
Headquartered in London, Freedom 55 Financial, a division of London Life Insurance Company, has joined as presenting sponsor in part of a multi-year agreement that will see the event stay in the London area for years to come.
The championship will feature a unique partnership between PGA Tour Canada and Golf Canada, with Canada’s National Sport Organization and governing body serving as the event operator for the season-ending Tour Championship.
The 132-player field at the Tour Championship of Canada presented by Freedom 55 Financial will be based off the 2013 Order of Merit, with the top 132 players through the first seven events gaining entry.
The PGA Tour Canada season kicks off June 3-9 at the Times Colonist Island Savings Open in Victoria, BC.
