For the eighth consecutive year, Insperity Invitational patrons will have the opportunity to see Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Lee Trevino participate in a special competition on Saturday, May 4 at The Woodlands Country Club Tournament Course as the 3M Greats of Golf tradition continues. The first group of the Greats of Golf will tee off following the last tee time of the second round of the Insperity Invitational.
This year, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino and friends will make their return. For the first time, they will be joined by four women World Golf Hall of Fame Members: Annika Sorenstam, Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley, and Juli Inkster! Each of the Greats will be grouped in foursomes and will play a scramble against one another to take home the bragging rights. Teams will be:
Team 1: Annika, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, & Lee Trevino
Team 2: Nancy Lopez, Dave Stockton, Larry Nelson, & Hale Irwin.
Team 3: Pat Bradley, Tom Weiskopf, David Graham, & Tony Jacklin.
Team 4: Juli Inkster, Fuzzy Zoeller, Ben Crenshaw, & Bill Rogers.
In 2018, the competition ended in a tie with the team of Fuzzy Zoeller, Bill Rogers, and Charles Coody tying the team of Hale Irwin, Larry Nelson, and Dave Stockton at 12-under-par in the scramble format. This year, there will be 16 players grouped in foursomes. Grounds admission is free on Saturday thanks to Woodforest National Bank.
