Workday is returning to Muirfield Village Golf Club, not in a setup role this time but as presenting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament in 2022.
Workday, a software vendor concentrating on financial management and human resources, signed a 10-year deal to replace Nationwide Insurance, which has sponsored the Memorial since 2011. The new sponsorship begins after the 2021 tournament, which is scheduled to run June 3-6.
In July, Workday stepped in at the last minute to sponsor the Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village. The tournament, won by Collin Morikawa in a playoff against Justin Thomas, was a one-off PGA Tour event held the week before the Memorial that filled a hole in the calendar created when the Illinois-based John Deere Classic was canceled due to COVID-19.
Joining with Workday means the Memorial, which already counts Nationwide Children’s Hospital as a charitable beneficiary, will add Eat. Learn. Play., an Oakland, California-based foundation supported by NBA star Stephen Curry and his wife, Ayesha.
