More than 56,000 fans enjoyed the inaugural PGA TOUR Champions American Family Insurance Championship last June. Due in part to large attendance numbers, the tournament was able to provide more than $1 million to local charities. To continue that momentum, tickets are now available for purchase online for the 2017 event, featuring the championship playing debut of host Steve Stricker. The second annual championship will take place June 23-25, once again at University Ridge golf course in Madison, Wis.

Fans can visit the tournament website at www.AmFamChampionship.com and select the “Get Tickets” button on the home page. There are no ticket price increases for 2017; in fact, special discounts will be offered for pre-tournament purchases now through June 1. Promotions include:

~$5 off a $25 general admission ticket

~$5 off a $20 Champions tickets (50 years +)

~$10 off $50 Clubhouse tickets (Clubhouse tickets include special amenities)

Active duty, reserve and retired military personnel can again enjoy complimentary daily admission, and any child 15 and under gets free daily admission to the tournament with a paid adult.“We were amazed at the response to last year’s event and it confirmed our belief that fans would embrace a PGA TOUR Champions event in Wisconsin,” said Nate Pokrass, tournament director. “We are actively creating new experiences for fans which will provide a great value for their sports entertainment dollar, while knowing they’re supporting worthy charities at the same time. We look forward to announcing more exciting tournament week activities in the coming months, including player commitments.”

Stricker will play in the tournament this year, as he becomes eligible for the PGA TOUR Champions when he turns 50 in February. Wisconsin resident and PGA TOUR winner Jerry Kelly also joins the PGA TOUR Champions this year.

Also, more than 800 volunteers have already signed up to provide support during the 2017 tournament. Those interested in learning more about the remaining volunteer opportunities can visit and/or sign up at the volunteer page on the tournament website.
