PGA Tour Features Mack Champ Invitational

During the week of the Houston Open, the PGA Tour took an in-depth look into the Mack Champ Invitational and the impact our tournament has had on diverse junior golfers like Allyn Stephens, a Houston native who will play her college golf for Texas A&M.

In addition to the video above, you can read the article on pgatour.com.

We are proud of Cameron’s commitment to giving back and proud to continue the legacy of his grandfather through this event, which will be played again March 18-20 at Memorial Park Golf Course in Houston thanks to our generous partners at the Astros Golf Foundation.

We are still taking applications for the 2022 event! Apply online by Dec. 1 to be considered.

The Cameron Champ Foundation and Chevron have donated $40,000 to Prairie View A&M University to establish scholarships for the men’s and women’s golf teams.

The donation, made after Cameron played his first Masters and inspired by Augusta National’s scholarship gift to Paine College, will be named for Mack Champ, Cameron’s grandfather.

Cameron Champ Takes a Stand on Racial Injustice

In just his second full season on the PGA Tour, Cameron Champ was one of only 30 players to reach the Tour Championship. In the process, he has also been able to use his platform to take a stand on issues of racial injustice.

During the BMW Championship and Tour Championship, Cameron wore one white shoe and one black shoe adorned with “Breonna Taylor,” “Jacob Blake,” “Black Lives Matter” and “Papa Champ,” the latter being a tribute to his late grandfather, Mack Champ, a victim of racial discrimination himself.

“Until equality in our country means everyone is treated with the same level of dignity and respect, and afforded the same level of opportunity, freedom and justice in all things as human beings, we will never be able to truly live up to our ideals, or reach our full potential as a nation,” Cameron said in a post on social media. “I join my fellow athletes in continuing to use my voice for positive change that will move our country forward as one.”

Cameron also spoke with reporters at the BMW Championship about his position and the reasons he feels so passionately about the issue. You can watch the video on Facebook.

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.”

Mack Champ Invitational Postponed

We are very sorry to announce the postponement of the Mack Champ Invitational, but the health and safety of our junior golfers and their families, as well as that of the broader community, is the most important thing on our minds.

Our mission to level the playing field in golf remains the same, and we are actively monitoring the situation and looking for a time to reschedule the tournament.

More information on the tournament is available at mackchampinvitational.com.

Nike Releases ‘Grandpa Mack’ Polo

The new Grandpa Mack polo from Nike Golf represents a silhouette of the first known picture of Cameron Champ’s late grandfather playing golf, and it serves as a tribute to his life journey, quest for equality, passion for golf and the way he gave of himself to others.

Cameron is wearing this polo to honor #PapaChamp at the Genesis Invitational, and you can get one too on Nike.com. In celebration of Black History Month, 100% of the contributions will go to the Cameron Champ Foundation and our work to inspire the next generation of athletes, just like Grandpa Mack did for Cameron.

Check out the video below to learn more about the inspiration behind the shirt.
