Nationwide has a long-standing commitment to children's health and well-being, and is proud of the 60-year relationship with Nationwide Children's Hospital. As a part of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, the hospital’s Patient Champion Program honors and celebrates their courageous patients.
The 2018 Nationwide Invitational at the Memorial, the Tournament’s official Pro-Am, on Wednesday, May 30, will include hosting eight Patient Champions and their families for a full morning of VIP Tournament experiences.
The Patient Champions will receive personalized caddie bibs to wear on the golf course and will enjoy behind-the-scenes activities, including a meet-and-greet on the 1st and 10th hole tee boxes with PGA TOUR players participating in the Pro-Am; a visit to the 18th hole leaderboard; and a famous Muirfield Village Golf Club milkshake. To round out the day, each Patient Champion will have the opportunity to tend the flag on the 18th green for Pro-Am teams finishing the hole.
The Patient Champion Program is a day to recognize the strong, driving spirit and optimistic outlook of each patient that inspires not only their family and loved ones, but the entire community.
