The Korn Ferry Tour, which has paved the way to the PGA Tour for many professional golfers, returns to Arlington from April 10-16 when the second Veritex Bank Championship will be held at Texas Rangers Golf Club. A portion of the proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County and The Folded Flag Foundation. The tournament will feature 156 touring pros, who will compete in the Korn Ferry Tour’s only stop in Texas. Tyson Alexander claimed his first win on the tour in the inaugural Veritex Bank Championship in 2021 and will try to fend off a field of pro golfers pursuing their dream of earning a PGA Tour card.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County is the largest Boys & Girls Club in the state of Texas. The Clubs provide services and special programs to more than 36,000 youth a year, with ages ranging from six to 24. The BGCGTC is committed to being a premier youth development program in the community, a low-cost or free resource for all, and a safe and welcoming environment for children and teens.
As part of the partnership, the Veritex Bank Championship Junior Clinic presented by Dallas Golf will welcome 45 youth from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County program. Korn Ferry Tour professionals will provide a demo and lead the clinic instruction, while juniors have a chance to chip, putt, and hit balls on the range. In addition, the BGCGTC Mobile Clubhouse will be on-site Wednesday- Saturday of the tournament and offer a welcoming place for younger spectators. All spectators are encouraged to visit the Clubhouse to learn more.
The tourney will also support The Folded Fag Foundation for a second consecutive year. The organization provides educational scholarships and support grants to the spouses and children of the U.S. military and government personnel who died because of hostile action or in an accident related to U.S. combat operations.
All active military, veterans, first responders and their families (spouse and children under 18) can attend the championship at no cost from April 13-16. The Veritex Bank Championship will recognize the brave men and women who protect our freedom and keep our communities safe during ceremonies on Saturday, April 16 as part of Military & First Responder Appreciation Day.
