Valspar Championship continues through Sunday
Founded as the Tampa Bay Classic at the turn of the millennium, the Valspar Championship – taking place through Sunday in Safety Harbor – is one of the most prestigious tournaments on the PGA Tour.
Golfing in Florida in the early Spring? How many professional players can say no to that?
Valspar, a subsidiary of the Sherwin-Williams paint company, has been sponsoring the event since 2013.
Taking place on the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club’s Copperhead Course, the 2023 Valspar Championship carries an $8 million purse, of which $1,458,000 will go to the winner.
Stephan Jaegar, Ryan Brehm and Adam Schenk (-5) were on top of the leaderboard at the end of Day 1 play Thursday.
