After over a decade as the Memorial Tournament’s title sponsor, Nationwide will be taking on a new role at Jack Nicklaus’ annual invitational, beginning in 2022.

The Columbus, Ohio-based Fortune 100 company will remain involved with the tournament in a different capacity after next year with a multi-year agreement that involves Nationwide Children’s Hospital and tournament-week benefits, as well as a presenting sponsorship of the annual community fundraising event, the Legends Luncheon, which supports advances in pediatric care and research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Nationwide will also continue to support the tournament’s volunteer programs via Nationwide’s associate volunteer initiative and a sponsorship of the tournament’s Volunteer of the Year award.
