You might have taken a double-take when when you saw the PGA Tour was having a tournament called the Dean & DeLuca Invitational.
Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not a new event. While the name has changed from time to time, the tournament is 70 years old.
It has been called a number of names since its inaugural tournament in 1946, most recently the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
It’s a prestigious event and that reflects in the prize money.
The total purse for the 2016 Dean & DeLuca Invitational is $6.7 million, with the winner getting a $1.206 share of that. The complete player payouts have yet to be determined.
