CVS Classic Comes to End 

Since its inception in 1999, the CVS Health Charity Classic has raised more than $25 million. 

Due to Covid, the last tournament was played in 2019, and the event went virtual in 2020. 

The last winners of the CVS Classic was the team of Keegan Bradley, Brooke Henderson and Billy Andrade. 

The first ever winners was the team of Justin Leonard and Davis Love III.  

Over the years, the tournament has featured players like Arnold Palmer, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Annika Sorenstam, Morgan Pressel, Natalie Gulbis and more.
