Nationwide Insurance is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament. Hosted by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the Tournament showcases elite national and international players on one of the world’s most challenging courses, Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
Proceeds from the Tournament will continue to benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital. In addition, the Tournament and Nationwide have partnered on initiatives such as an annual benefit concert and the Legends Luncheon, an alliance between the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The Legends Luncheon has raised a record $537,000. These, along with several other Memorial Tournament charitable programs, have resulted in nearly $2 million in contributions since 2011 to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The money generated funds for several areas of need at the hospital that benefit the lives of countless children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
As a mutual, we exist to serve our members. So we understand how important it is to give back to your community. That’s why we’re proud to be the first local sponsor and partner with the Memorial Tournament to raise awareness and money for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

In 2013 Nationwide Insurance will continue to partner with the Memorial to enhance the fan experience, increase contributions for children’s health care and share the inspirational stories of the brave young patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Key highlights for the 38th playing of the Memorial include the following:
- The Digital House, returning to its location just off of the Practice Facility. Patrons can obtain information, engage with fans everywhere using social media platforms, charge mobile devices, play games, see golf celebrity appearances and more
- Free Sirius XM with a limited supply of FM-band radios will be available for use at and away from the course, just like last year.
- Nationwide Gallery Cam, new this year, where two hi-definition pictures will be taken of the galleries (one Friday and one Sunday). Fans will be able to go to a website, find themselves, tag themselves and distribute to their personal social media outlets.
- Free On Your Side golf cart rides, sponsored by Nationwide Insurance, for those in need of transportation assistance from their parking locations to shuttle stops in satellite parking areas. These efforts are Nationwide’s way of extending the same On Your Side experience to golf fans that we extend to our members.
The Memorial Tournament delivers a one-of-kind experience filled with tradition and excellence. That’s why Nationwide Insurance is proud to be the presenting sponsor this premier stop on the PGA TOUR. Nationwide has invested in its hometown since 1926, and is proud to continue this tradition today.
