(Ponte Vedra Beach, FL) The first company to sign on as a Founding Partner sponsor for the 2013 Tour Championship is Ponte Vedra-based Legacy Trust Family Wealth Offices. Tour President Bill Calfee announced today that Legacy Trust Family Wealth Offices will be the Official Family Wealth Management Firm of the Tour Championship.  The Tour Championship is being held Sept. 23-29 on Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.

The Tour
Championship is part of the newly created four-event Tour Finals, and the culminating event of the 2013 Tour season. All 50 PGA TOUR cards will be determined at the Tour Championship, making the Tour the path to the PGA TOUR.

As one of the key tournament sponsors, Legacy Trust will also be the title sponsor of the Friday night concert, which is open to all ticket holders. 
Legacy Trust executives saw their support of the Tour Championship as a natural fit for the firm’s marketing strategy.


Kristin McLauchlan, Chairman & CEO of Legacy Trust, stated, “The most compelling reasons for signing on with the Tour Championship is the commitment to area charities and giving to local non-profit organizations. Part of what we do is help our clients develop their charitable giving plans, and our philosophy is that we should take a leadership role in the community from a corporate giving perspective.” McLauchlan continued, “It is our responsibility to support cultural and sporting events that can help our community prosper. The Tour Championship is going to be a big event that we believe will do great things for our community and we want to be a part of that at the ground level.”


When approached by PGA TOUR officials to support the event, McLauchlan jumped at the chance.  The first company to sign on as a Founding Partner, McLauchlan felt a sense of leadership to demonstrate to other business leaders that being part of this event is the right thing to do.

“Local businesses like Legacy Trust are what make the Tour Championship possible,” said Matt Rapp, Executive Director of the Tour Championship. “We greatly value our relationship with them, and their support of the tournament and its role in the Jacksonville community.”


Legacy Trust Family Wealth Offices of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. is a boutique wealth management firm founded “by families, for families,” focusing on generational wealth and family guidance.  The largest independent firm of its kind in Florida, Legacy Trust provides discerning families and foundations with an alternative to the standard services offered by institutional bank and brokerages. 

When asked about Legacy Trust, Chairman, David Brown, stated "We are very pleased to have Legacy Trust part of the Tour Championship. To have a company of Legacy Trust's caliber take a leading sponsorship role at the Tour Championship speaks volumes to the prestige of the event."

The Tour Championship heads to Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass from Sept. 26-29 and will feature the top-75 money winners at the end of the Tour regular season as well as the PGA TOUR players who finish 126-200 on the FedExCup points list who are not eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs.
