Shriners Children’s Open Underway at TPC Summerlin

No losers at this annual charitable event

The Howard Hughes Cup is officially in Las Vegas and it’s making the rounds before it is bestowed upon its latest winner. Who that will be is not yet known but it will be on Sunday, October 10. That is when the annual Shriners Children’s Open comes to a close at TPC Summerlin here in Las Vegas. 

But, let’s get real, there are only winners that benefit from the annual event. Officially, the Shriners Children’s Open is the third event in the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup season. Golfers who compete in the event will earn points towards the FedExCup which has a purse of $7-million bucks. Eleven of the top 25 ranked golfers are competing for the Howard Hughes cup and also the grand daddy FedExCup.

No matter who hoists either cup, the Shriners Children’s Hospital is the real winner here. Not only are they the sponsor for the event, they are also the benefactor for the open. Proceeds from the tournament support the organization that has 22 locations in our country alone. In fact, patient ambassadors from each of those 22 locations will be in attendance at this week’s tournament. Both players and visitors say that it’s a lifetime highlight to hear from and be inspired by these patients and ambassadors. 

Golfer Billy Horschel says, “I love this event.  Obviously, I’ve only played in it once, but what Shriners does with all the children and with me having my little girl, you know, I couldn’t imagine what all these families have to go through, so with Shriners being there taking care of them, I love the tournament.  They do a heck of a job putting it on.”

The charitable event is underway at TPC Summerlin with daily happenings for the golf enthusiast. You purchase tickets or get more information at the Shriners Children’s Open website.
