Newly-named Oasis Championship returns to The Old Course at Broken Sound, Feb. 4-10, 2019
BOCA RATON, Florida – PGA TOUR Champions has announced that Oasis Outsourcing, the nation’s largest privately-held Professional Employer Organization, will be the title sponsor of the Oasis Championship, a premier PGA TOUR Champions event held annually in Boca Raton, Florida. A three-year agreement is in place through 2021.
“We are excited that the Oasis Championship will continue bringing world-class golf to Boca Raton,” said Mark Perlberg, President and CEO of Oasis Outsourcing. “This sponsorship continues our tradition of supporting the local community, and we are proud to help keep this key event in the Palm Beaches.”
The 2019 Oasis Championship (February 4-10) is the first full-field event of the PGA TOUR Champions season, and it will be played at The Old Course at Broken Sound for the 13th consecutive year. The 2018 tournament featured a final-round showdown between Mark Calcavecchia and Boca Raton resident and World Golf Hall of Famer Bernhard Langer, with Calcavecchia completing the wire-to-wire victory for his fourth career win. In all, last year’s field included eight members of the World Golf Hall of Fame and 15 major champions.
“The city of Boca Raton has been instrumental in the event’s growth, and our partnership with Oasis will make this tournament even stronger,” said Miller Brady, President of PGA TOUR Champions. “The players love starting the year in Boca Raton and The Old Course at Broken Sound is a great venue for our first full-field event of the season.”
The Oasis Championship annually attracts one of the best fields of the season, and in 2018 it included John Daly, Colin Montgomerie, Miguel Angel Jimenez and David Toms, as well as past champions Scott McCarron (2017), Paul Goydos (2015), Rocco Mediate (2013), Corey Pavin (2012), Tom Lehman (2011) and Langer (2010). In 2019, the 78-player field will compete for a $1.7 million purse, and all three rounds will be televised live on the Golf Channel.
“The Oasis Championship makes an incredible impact on the Boca Raton community, with charitable contributions totaling $1.7 million since the tournament’s inception,” said Eddie Carbone, Tournament Director of the Oasis Championship. “With a great local partner in Oasis, we’re looking forward to building on the tournament’s longstanding tradition in South Florida.”
Based out of West Palm Beach, Oasis Outsourcing was recently named to the South Florida Business Journal’s Fast 50 list. Oasis also was ranked as the No. 3 private company on the South Florida Business Journal’s annual list of the top 100 private companies in the area.
