Greenbrier, PGA, agree to extend tournament through 2021

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Greenbrier resort owner Jim Justice and the PGA Tour have announced a six-year extension agreement that will keep The Greenbrier Classic as a PGA Tour event through 2021.

By extending the original contract, which runs through 2015, the tournament at the resort in White Sulphur Springs now becomes the longest tournament commitment on the PGA Tour, according to a PGA news release.

 The Greenbrier Classic, which begins Thursday at the Old White TPC Course, is televised by Golf Channel through the first two rounds and by CBS during the weekend.

“The first three years of our contract with the PGA Tour have been a thrilling ride,” Justice said in a statement. “The tour is a fantastic partner and we’re so proud and excited to announce that The Greenbrier Classic will remain a bright light on the landscape of the PGA Tour and continue to give our fans heart-pounding tournament action for years to come.

“The entire state of West Virginia and the region as a whole have embraced the tournament from the very beginning. Without the passion and support of our local and regional communities The Greenbrier Classic could not have grown so quickly into one of the premiere events on TOUR,” he said.
