VIDEO: Bradley, McIlroy Reflect on End of CVS Charity Classic
As GolfNewsRI reported earlier this month, the CVS Charity Classic is ending after 23 years.
This week at the U.S. Open, multi-time CVS Charity Classic champ Keegan Bradley and one-time participant Rory McIlroy reflected on the Tournament’s run.
“Growing up I always knew about the CVS. I had been there. I had seen it. Then, being able to ask to play in it
was really fun. Again, we don’t get to play golf up here at all. So for my family and me and then one year I won it with my high school best friend, Jon Curran, who played the Tour. It was just amazing. And what Billy and Brad have done for the local community with that tournament is spectacular,” Bradley told GolfNewsRI in his press conference.
Bradley won the tournament five years in a row with various partners including Curran, Brooke Henderson and Billy Andrade.
McIlroy played in the tournament just one year, in 2018, shortly after Faxon started working with him.
“That CVS Charity Classic raised a lot of money for the community there in Rhode Island. I think Fax and Billy did a great job with that. I don’t know the details behind why it’s not going to be a thing anymore, but they had a great run, and they raised a lot of money, and they should be proud of what they did,” McIlroy said.
