Nationwide is the Presenting Sponsor of the Memorial Tournament
Nationwide supports the communities where we live and work. That’s why we’ve been working with Nationwide Children’s Hospital for more than 60 years to help them achieve their mission. Nationwide Children’s Hospital has always been the primary charitable benefactor of the Memorial Tournament.
The Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide is hosted by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and features the world's top golfers as they compete in what is widely considered to be golf's fifth major. 2018 is the 8th year that Nationwide has served as the presenting sponsor of an event that shines a spotlight on our hometown of Columbus, Ohio, and benefits Nationwide Children's Hospital, which provides world-class care to every child, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
Nationwide congratulates the 2018 winner of the Memorial Tournament, Bryson DeChambeau. Bryson outlasted Kyle Stanley and Byeong Hun An through two playoff holes to capture his second career PGA TOUR victory. After struggling to find the fairway for most of the final round, Bryson saved his best play when the pressure was at its highest. The Modesto, California native split the fairway on the second playoff hole, hit his approach shot to 12 feet and buried the birdie putt to secure his first win of 2018.
Benefiting Nationwide Children's Hospital
Nationwide is proud to partner with Jack Nicklaus and the Memorial Tournament because of our shared commitment to giving back to the community. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Memorial Tournament Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Since partnering with the Memorial in 2011, together Nationwide and the Memorial Tournament have raised nearly $11 million for Nationwide Children's Hospital. In 2006, the Nationwide Foundation pledged its largest gift in its history, granting $50 million to the hospital, and over the last five years, gifted the hospital with an additional $50 million in grants to establish and support the Nationwide Foundation Pediatric Innovation Fund at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
At Nationwide, we're more than a business. Making a difference in the lives of children and their families is something that we've held most important since our beginnings in 1926. Learn more about the Memorial Tournament.
