This Year's "New" WGC

First we heard that the WGC-Mexico had to be relocated because of the pandemic. It finally landed at the Concession Golf Club in Bradenton FL. But it still needed a sponsor.

Now we know who that is as well. Welcome to the WGC-Workday Championship at the Concession.

While this sponsorship is only for a year -- Workday's regular gig will continue to be the Memorial Tournament -- the PGA Tour is loving the fact that Workday is a partner. First they stepped up and sponsored an extra week at Muirfield Village with the Workday Charity Open, at a time when the Tour was struggling to create events. And now, less than a year later, they pick up the slack for a WGC after pandemic concerns threatened to cancel that event for a year.

Simply put, the PGA Tour will once again have a four-event Florida swing, even if it is only for one year. But I'm sure the participating pros are going to enjoy this temporary arrangement.

They say that when times get tough, you learn who your friends are. And based on the statements issued by Workday co-founder and co-CEO Aneel Bhusri and PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, both parties have made it clear that this arrangement suits them just fine. It certainly appears that this could be the start of a long, mutually beneficial friendship.
