SAS Championship returns for 22nd year during PGA Tour Champions

The annual event will be held Oct. 10-16, 2022, in Cary, NC

SAS will once again host the SAS Championship, one of the premier tournaments on the PGA Tour Champions, Oct. 10-16, 2022, at the world-class Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. Golfing legends such as 2021 SAS Championship winner Lee Janzen will battle for one of the largest purses on the PGA Tour Champions.

“We are honored to host the SAS Championship once again, bringing this major international event to our area for its 22nd year,” said SAS Chief Marketing Officer Jenn Chase. “We look forward to another year of watching an excellent field of players, spotlighting our community and giving back to local charities.”

The SAS Championship supports SAS’ commitment to education outreach by supporting the YMCA of the Triangle as the tournament’s host charity. Since its inception, the tournament has donated over $5 million to area youth educational initiatives, helping the 9,600 students who have taken part in the Y’s academic programs during this time. In 2021, SAS and the SAS Championship also partnered with the YMCA to improve children’s literacy in the Triangle region with their Drive to Read book drive.

Beyond the tournament itself, the SAS Championship has also hosted notable programs for professionals and families alike, including the inspirational Executive Women’s Day event and panel discussion, Food Truck Friday night and SAS Championship 5K race.

The 2022 PGA Tour Champions season will feature 28 events and the highest prize money in Tour history with a total of $62 million up for grabs. The Tour will be televised nationally on Golf Channel, with coverage available in over 180 countries and territories.
