2019 World Golf Championship-FedEx St. Jude Invitational

This July, Memphis hosted the 2019 World Golf Championship-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. It was the 21st WGC Invitational tournament, and the first ever hosted in Memphis. The Invitational drew several big names including Phil Mickelson, Rory Mcllroy, and Brooks Koepka. Brooks Koepka finished with 16-under 264 to win his first WGC title.  

Federal Express is the title sponsor, and companies all over Memphis contribute to the tournament to benefit St. Jude and to help ensure that the event is a success. Wilson Air Center – Memphis hosted golfers and fans as they flew in and out of our terminal throughout the week. Wilson Air Center also created a fuel donation program, donating twenty-five cents for every gallon of fuel sold during the tournament week. Special thanks to all the golfers and fans that flew into Wilson Air Center that week, because with your help we donated $3,313 to St. Jude!

All donations go to ensure that families receiving treatment at St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food. Because the family’s only concern should be their child healing. If you would like to make a donation, please visit the St Jude website: stjude.org/give.html

Wilson Air Center – Memphis is proud to serve as the preferred FBO for the Invitational and donate to such a great organization. Congratulations to all the golfers and we look forward to another great event in 2020!
