Field set for AmFam Championship

The field is set for the 2019 American Family Insurance Championship after tournament officials announced the additions of Vijay Singh and David Toms to a field of 78 players that will begin competition on Friday, June 21, at University Ridge Golf Course.

Overall, the three-day tournament will include 37 of top 40 Charles Schwab Cup players, plus four legends headlined by Jack Nicklaus who will take part in a foursome during the second round of the tournament on Saturday, June 22. Joining Nicklaus in the AmFam Champ Celebrity Foursome will be Andy North, a Madison resident and two-time winner of the U.S. Open, Green Bay Packer great Brett Favre, and country western music star Toby Keith.

Following the final tournament group for the day, the celebrity foursome will play a nine-hole scramble, starting on the 10th hole, at approximately 2:30 p.m.

Around their appearance, golf fans will enjoy one of the strongest fields of PGA TOUR Champions, including defending champion Scott McCarron, player-host Steve Stricker, and nine of the top 10 players in this year’s Charles Schwab Cup race. Other returning players will include hometown star Jerry Kelly, 2016 American Family Insurance Championship winner Kirk Triplett, and international legends Bernhard Langer, Miguel Angel Jimenez, and Colin Montgomerie.

The entire player field is posted on the American Family Insurance Championship website.
