Pro golf back in Boca in November

PGA’s professional golf tournament returns to The Old Course at Broken Sound for the 14th year from Nov. 1 to 7 with the same title sponsor.

TimberTech has signed on through 2023, PGA and local tournament organizers announced. The PGA will decide closer to the date if spectators will be safely allowed to attend this year, PGA TOUR Champions president Miller Brady said. No gallery was allowed at last year’s tournament due to Covid restrictions.

His son goes to Lynn University so Boca “is like a second home,” said defending champion Darren Clarke. In November 2020, he birdied the 18th hole for a one-stroke victory over Jim Furyk and two-time champion, Boca resident Bernhard Langer. “In Boca, things just clicked,” Clarke said about his first PGA win since 2011. He looks forward to playing again “with the legends of the game.”

TimberTech signed on at the last minute in 2020, but after the tournament “we made a decision this was something we had to do,” said Jesse Singh, CEO of The AZEK Company, the parent company. “We experienced hospitality from the start.”

The tournament will retain its slot as the second event in the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs. “We do this for the community and have raised over $2 million for Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation,” said Eddie Carbone, tournament director.
