About The Classic – The tournament, founded in 1984 has raised approximately $2 million for the St. John’s Children’s Clinic. Former co-chairpersons Carl Erskine and Wilbur Roby created the celebrity/community member pairing format that is still popular today, 34 years later. Recently, tournament host Brian Hammons and co-chairpersons Jim and Marilyn Ault introduced a pairings party the evening before the tournament with the help of committee members Rob and Jane Loose. This year, Fuzzy Zoeller and John Mahaffey lend their personalities for U.S. Open play-by-play following the tournament.
Indiana Celebrities – The tournament has included well-known names such as Larry Bird, Peyton Manning, Bill Polian and Sandi Patty. Players from the Indianapolis Colts and Pacers have participated, as well as some of the top coaches and players from Indiana University, Purdue University and Notre Dame.
