Following a week in Raleigh, North Carolina, the Korn Ferry Tour heads to one of its longest-running stops: the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. This week is a one-of-a-kind event on the Korn Ferry Tour, which features celebrities and amateurs playing alongside professionals and is televised on Golf Channel.

This year’s tournament is headlined by 20 of the top 25 in the 2020-21 Korn Ferry Tour points standings, as well as celebrities Canelo Alvarez, Anthony Anderson, Cedric the Entertainer, Roger Clemens, Ken Griffey Jr., Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Peña, and David Wells.

Korn Ferry Tour alum Patrick Cantlay defeated Collin Morikawa with a par on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the Memorial Tournament for the second time in three years. The victory also moved Cantlay to No. 1 in the 2021 FedExCup Standings.

Cantlay turned professional in June 2012 and played four of the final seven Korn Ferry Tour events that year. He earned his PGA TOUR card at the end of the 2013 Korn Ferry Tour season, despite making just nine starts. Cantlay won the 2013 Country Club de Bogota Championship and finished solo second at the 2013 Hotel Fitness Championship, which culminated in a 13th-place finish on the money list.

Scottie Scheffler, the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year and 2019-20 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year, finished solo third last week and two shots out of the playoff. It was the third top-five of the season for Scheffler, who climbed 10 spots to No. 20 in the FedExCup Standings.
