Darren Clarke, Ernie Els, Bernhard Langer, Vijay Singh and many more world-class golfers will tee off in the 14th annual Boeing Classic and Korean Air Pro-Am this month at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge.
The Classic will be the PGA TOUR Champions debut of former British Open champion Clarke, a Northern Ireland native who won the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St. George’s at age 42. World Golf Hall of Famers Langer and Singh have also signed on for the Classic.
“We truly have a world-class field coming to the Boeing Classic,” stated Boeing Classic Executive Director Brian Flajole in a press release. “They come from all around the world to play here, and the fact that Darren Clarke has chosen to make this his debut event makes it all the more exciting.”
The Korean Air Pro-Am is slated for Aug. 22-23 and The Classic will take place Aug. 24-26.
Langer has notched two Boeing Classic titles in 2010 and 2016, and will be joined by Spain’s Miguel Ángel Jiménez and England’s Paul Broadhurst.
World Golf Hall of Fame member Els will play in the Boeing Classic Korean Air Pro-Am and is looking forward to golfing at Snoqualmie Ridge.
“I know from talking to some of the guys that have played there in recent years that it’s always a really enjoyable week, a beautiful golf course, and Boeing clearly do a wonderful job there,” Els said in a press release. “For me personally, it’s an honor to represent such an iconic company, a name that is known and respected all around the world. I must also take this opportunity to express my thanks to the team at Boeing for its support of The Els for Autism Foundation in recent years. We really appreciate everything that they’ve done for us.”
The Classic is a PGA TOUR Champions charitable event that has raised nearly $7 million over the last 13 years in support of Virginia Mason Foundation-funded health initiatives, like Benaroya Research Institute.
