Brad Faxon Reflects on CVS Charity Classic Run

Rhode Island’s Brad Faxon has issued a statement on social media regarding the end of the CVS Health Charity Classic. 

As GolfNewsRI reported on Friday, the tournament has come to an end after a 23-year run. 

Faxon said the following: 

“What a great run.

In 1999, Tom Ryan, Peter Jacobson, Billy Andrade, myself and Rhode Island Country Club, (where I grew up), put together the inaugural event.

The CVS Health Charity Classic has since raised over $25 million and influenced hundreds of non profits.

Thank you to the players who played and helped support the tournament, including the big three, Arnold Palmer, @jacknicklaus and @gary.player@annikas59@julieinkster @mpressel and many other hall of famers and world class players.

Thank you to my dear friend and co-host @billytandrade1. We couldn’t have done it without you.

An extended thank you to RICC and all the non profits who helped volunteer over the many, many years.

I’m proud to have been part of something so great for the past 23 years!”
