This year’s tournament will honor the life of beloved pitcher-turned-broadcaster Tim Wakefield who passed away in October.

The four-day tournament will be held on Jan. 18-21, 2024, at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club’s prestigious championship golf course in Orlando, Florida, and will be televised nationally on NBC and Golf Channel. LPGA Tour winners from the previous two seasons will compete for $1.5 million in official prize money while celebrities compete for a separate purse of $500,000.

Multi-platinum, award-winning recording artist Elle King, recognized for her Grammy-nominated single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” will open the first night of the concert series on Tuesday, Jan. 16.
