Listowel native and PGA Tour star Corey Conners has been named Honourary Chair of the Fortinet Cup Championship.

The PGA Tour Canada’s flagship year-end event, the Fortinet Cup Championship will go this year at Deer Ridge Golf Club set for September 12th-18th. The Corey and Malory Conners Family Fund, which focuses on helping underprivileged children through sports and education, will be the official Fortinet Cup Championship charity.

Conners, a PGA TOUR Canada member in 2015 and 2016, joined the PGA TOUR in 2018 and won the following year, at the Valero Texas Open. Conners is currently ranked 32nd in the FedExCup standings, is also the 32nd-ranked player in the world and is No. 6 in the International Presidents Cup standings.

“I loved my time playing on PGA TOUR Canada, and there have been so many like me who played on that Tour and gained valuable experience that allowed us to move to the Korn Ferry Tour and eventually the PGA TOUR. It’s truly a great feeling to once again be associated with PGA TOUR Canada through my involvement with the Fortinet Cup Championship,” Conners says. “I had big dreams when I was playing in Canada in 2015 and 2016, and I will always have fond memories of those tournaments I played and the cities I visited.”
