Fans interested in attending the Korn Ferry Tour’s NV5 Invitational May 26-29 at The Glen Club in Glenview can now register for free tickets online at www.nv5invitational.com/2022-tickets.
SERVPRO of Glenview has partnered with the Western Golf Association to provide complimentary grounds admission to fans on all four days of the Korn Ferry Tour competition. Those registering online can also purchase upgraded tickets to The Hangar presented by Corona Premier, a premium spectator venue overlooking the 18th green with food and drink included.
Held for the first time in 2019, all three of the NV5 Invitational’s past champions are now playing on the PGA TOUR. Scottie Scheffler – the event’s inaugural champion – won the 2022 WM Phoenix Open on the PGA TOUR and is the No. 6-ranked player in the world. Curtis Thompson won the 2020 event at Chicago Highlands Club, and Cameron Young became the first player since 2013 to win back-to-back events on the Korn Ferry Tour when he won at The Glen Club in 2021. Other past stars who have played in the Chicago stop of the Korn Ferry Tour include Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau and Will Zalatoris.
“We’re looking forward to bringing golf’s future stars back to Glenview for the Chicago area’s only annual professional golf championship,” said Vince Pellegrino, WGA senior vice president of tournaments. “This event gives us an opportunity to showcase the best of golf’s talented rising stars while raising critical funds for youth caddie scholarships.”
All proceeds from the NV5 Invitational will support the Evans Scholars Foundation and its efforts to award full tuition and housing college scholarships to deserving youth caddies. This year, there are 1,070 Evans Scholars enrolled at 21 leading universities nationwide. Since 1930, more than 11,500 caddies have graduated as Evans Scholars.
Located at the former site of the Glenview Naval Air Station, The Glen Club sits at the heart of a 195-acre refuge that features rolling terrain, dramatic elevation changes, tranquil lakes, meandering streams and stunning vistas, including the Chicago skyline in the distance.
With four sets of tees that can stretch close to 7,200 yards, this is a shotmaker’s track in which the brilliance of Fazio clearly shines. His use of elevation changes, subtle slopes and detailed bunkering require a constant mental dialogue to pick targets and what to avoid.
This will mark the event’s first year with new title sponsor NV5, after NV5, the WGA and the Korn Ferry Tour announced a five-year partnership in September 2021. With more than 100 offices around the world, NV5 is a leading provider of compliance, technology, engineering and environmental consulting solutions.
Old National Bank is in the second year of a four-year presenting sponsorship agreement. Old National Bank will host a junior clinic during championship week while also supporting the Evans Scholars Foundation’s career services program, a resource that prepares Evans Scholars to launch successful careers after graduation.
