Jack Nicklaus continues to manage the Memorial Tournament, which he founded in his home state of Ohio. The event is played at Muirfield Village, a course that he co-designed with Desmond Muirhead and opened in 1974. The course was officially dedicated on Memorial Day, May 27, 1974, with an exhibition match between Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf.

The Memorial Tournament continues the PGA Tour‘s philanthropic focus through its relationships with Central Ohio charities. The most significant of which is its relationship with Nationwide Children’s Hospital since 1976. Contributions generated through the support of over 2,600 volunteers are distributed each year to the Hospital’s unrestricted giving fund. This fund assists in ensuring Central Ohio continues to have one of the best children’s hospitals in the United States. The Memorial Tournament has raised more than $5.7 million to support the programs and services at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in those 30-plus years. In 2005 the Memorial made a pledge that will elevate its level of giving to more than $11 million in the coming years. Unique and successful relationships also exist with Fore Hope, James Cancer Hospital, Wolfe Associates, The First Tee, Central Ohio Junior Golf Association, Shriners, Lions Club and many more.

Nicklaus and wife Barbara serve as honorary chairman and active chairwoman of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation in North Palm Beach, Florida which provides valuable programs and services to more than 4,000 hospitalized children and their families, free of charge, through Child Life programs, the Pediatric Oncology Support Team, and the Safe Kids program. The Nicklauses established “The Jake”, a pro-am golf tournament played annually at The Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Florida in honor of their 17-month-old grandson who drowned in a hot tub in 2005. It has become the foundation’s chief fundraiser. Players like Robert AllenbyRaymond FloydTom WatsonIan Baker-FinchErnie ElsJay HaasJohnny Miller, and Gary Player have participated. No one accepts a fee. Everything goes to the foundation, more than $3 million over the past three years.
