Chicago golf fans must adjust their 2023 viewing habits as the NV5 Invitational moves its dates to July and becomes an important summer event on the Korn-Ferry Tour tournament schedule. The 2023 NV5 Invitational presented by Old National Bank, is now set to be played this week – July 25-30 at The Glen Club in Glenview.
This traditionally competitive championship will see even more drama in 2023 as new summer dates place it in the middle of a critical closing stretch before the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, where an unprecedented 30 PGA TOUR cards will be awarded.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming Chicagoland golf fans back to The Glen Club for what has become a can’t-miss stop on the Korn Ferry Tour,” said Vince Pellegrino, WGA senior vice president of tournaments. “This championship is a proving ground for the future stars of the PGA TOUR, and we’re excited to see a loaded field compete this July.”
First held in 2019, the NV5 Invitational presented by Old National Bank has been a popular stop on the road to the PGA TOUR. Recall two quotes from the WGA that have held true for many years of hosting the developmental tour tournament: “The path to golf stardom runs through Glenview” and “The future of golf is in our own backyard”.
Scottie Scheffler won the inaugural championship and has gone on to win six times on the PGA TOUR – including the 2022 Masters Tournament and 2023 PLAYERS Championship – while reaching No. 1 in the world. Past champions also include 2022 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year Cameron Young (2021) and Harry Hall, who is making his PGA TOUR debut this season after defeating recent PGA TOUR winner Nick Hardy in a playoff at last year’s championship.
“The NV5 Invitational has produced some truly exciting finishes and winners for our fans each year,” said Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5. “We’re proud to provide a stage for these talented players to pursue their dreams while helping the Evans Scholars Foundation make a difference in the lives of young men and women across the country.”
This will mark the event’s second year with NV5 as the title sponsor. With more than 100 offices around the world, NV5 is a leading provider of technology, conformity assessment, and consulting solutions.
All proceeds from the NV5 Invitational presented by Old National Bank will support the Evans Scholars Foundation and its efforts to award full tuition and housing college scholarships to youth caddies. This year, there are 1,100 Evans Scholars enrolled at 22 leading universities nationwide. Since 1930, more than 11,800 caddies have graduated as Evans Scholars.
