Symetra Tour to Award ‘MVP Invite’ to Mack Champ Competitor

One player from the Mack Champ Invitational will earn a chance to play in the Symetra Tour’s Garden City Charity Classic in Garden City, KS, in April.

As part of the LPGA Tour’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and in celebration of Black History Month, the Symetra Tour is offering “MVP Invites” to three tournaments that showcase minority golfers. The Mack Champ Invitational will be the first and the National Women’s Collegiate Golf Championship will be the second. The third and final event will be announced in the weeks to come.

“We are incredibly excited and grateful for the Symetra Tour’s enthusiasm in supporting our mission with the establishment of the Symetra Tour MVP Invite,” Cameron Champ said. “Having the ability to award a player in our field with an exemption to compete in the Garden City Classic is huge. That will be a fantastic experience for one of these young players and could also lead them to many more opportunities, which is exactly what we’ve set out to accomplish with the Mack Champ Invitational – opening more doors for golfers of diverse backgrounds to have the chance to succeed in this great sport.”

Golf Magazine Tells the Story of Cam’s ‘Charitable Heart’

Seeing Cameron on the cover of the July/August 2020 issue of Golf Magazine with the headline “Rocket Man” was exciting, and his tips for increasing swing speed were spot on, but we were far more inspired by this headline: “Here’s why there’s no separating Cameron Champ the golfer and the giver.”

Cameron talks in great detail about his relationship with his grandfather Mack, his dedication to our Foundation, the Champ family’s involvement with Foothill Golf Course, the Mack Champ Invitational, and much more.

“Our main focus is mentorship and schooling,” he said of our Foundation. “We give them somewhere to go to have fun with other kids, to get help with homework and to play. Golf and other sports are part of it, but not all of it.”
