Throughout the week, the event will host a number of different events and initiatives to show that appreciation and respect for those who serve, including:

Darius Rucker headlines The Furyk Foundation Concert presented by SRS Distribution, a salute to our service men and women with Scotty McCreery – the concert which will take place on Tuesday, October 5 at Daily’s Place. This year’s concert will be a salute to our service men and women, with 1,000 tickets provided to our military courtesy of SRS Distribution and another 1,000 being donated by a collection of other tournament partners and sponsors.

The venue will include exclusive complimentary hospitality for military, veterans and their families with complimentary food & beverage, views of the pivotal 16th hole, and an opportunity to share camaraderie with other military community members.

OPERATION SHOWER supported by PNC and Circle K – Operation Shower exists for a simple reason: to recognize the military moms and military families who serve our country. Operation Shower provides joyous — awesome — baby showers going above and beyond and then beyond that!

On Sunday, October 3, at the Timuquana Country Club Pool Area, tournament co-host Tabitha Furyk as well as Karen Feagins, VP Client and Community Relations for PNC Bank, will host approximately 40 “military moms” for an afternoon of respite and gifting to show them the appreciation we have for their service and sacrifice.

On Saturday, October 9, immediately following the end of play, the tournament will host a military appreciation ceremony. Stay tuned as there is more news to come on the ceremony itself.



COMPETITION – “There are few experiences in golf like being in the team room at the Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup,” said tournament host Jim Furyk. “I cherish the opportunity to be a part of team events in golf and I know that all seven of us will come to Timuquana with incredible memories and stories to tell. It says a lot about our field that so many of us will have experience this year or so many more with past experience in these team events. No offense to Padraig, but hopefully the U.S. Team guys have some bragging rights this time.”

FAN EXPERIENCE – “Hosting a tournament in the fall in the heart of college and NFL football country, we are fortunate to have a partner like Publix to help us create the ultimate tailgate party at our event,” said Tournament Director Adam Renfroe. “Fans will have the best of both worlds with the location of the Publix Tailgate Village as they can watch two of the most exciting holes on the course with the best players in the world while also cheering on their favorite football team with great food, drinks and some tailgate games as well.”

COMMUNITY IMPACT – “The sacrifices of the men and women of the armed forces and their loved ones can never be fully appreciated,” said Tabitha Furyk. “Whether it’s our military ticket policies and VyStar Patriots Outpost, Operation Shower or the Furyk Foundation Concert presented by SRS honoring our service men and. women, we hope we can show our thanks and support to the sacrifices of those who selflessly defend our country.”
