AC Dublin Hosts Nationwide Insurance Memorial Tournament
The new AC Dublin has been chosen as the host hotel for the annual Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio this weekend! As the host hotel they are currently hosting the main sponsor Nationwide Insurance, CBS Sports and some of the players some big names as well.
The FORE! Miler presented by OhioHealth kicked off the Memorial Tournament on Thursday, May 24 at Muirfield Village Golf Club. The race serves as a fundraiser that highlights and benefits the alliance between Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The FORE! Miler race follows a route that starts and ends at world-renowned Muirfield Village Golf Club and includes Memorial Drive, Avery Road, Brand Road, Muirfield Drive and Kinross Court. Runners and walkers will enjoy a free post-race party The FORE! Miler is always limited to the first 3,000 runners and walkers who register for the event.
The Memorial Tournament is themed each year around a person, living or dead, who has contributed to the game of golf. This was Jack Nicklaus’ idea as a contribution to perpetuating achievements of the game’s greatest individuals. The honoree is selected by the Captains Club, a group of statesmen who act independently of the tournament organization, but who also advise on player invitations and the conduct of the event generally. The 2018 Honoree is Hale Irwin.
