The Cologuard Classic is an annual event on the PGA TOUR Champions schedule. In 2022, Miguel Angel Jimenez shot 18-under par and captured his twelfth win on the PGA TOUR Champions. Jimenez posted a 198 to set the Cologuard Classic 54-hole aggregate scoring record. This is Miguel Angel Jimenez’s fourth consecutive two-win season. Jimenez made a hole-in-one on the par 3, 14th hole with a 6-iron from 188 yards in the final round. This was his second ace in one week having also knocked in a hole-in-one during the first round on hole 7. The 2023 tournament will mark the sixth year as the Cologuard Classic, named after Wisconsin based Exact Sciences’ noninvasive at-home colon cancer screening test for average-risk individuals 45 years or older, and the ninth year the Conquistadores have partnered with the PGA TOUR Champions.
Tournament week is used as a platform to support critical messaging tied to colon cancer awareness, with PGA TOUR Champions players and the Tucson Conquistadores participating in a pledge to get screened for colon cancer. And, while the tournament message reaches a national audience, locally, the Cologuard Classic impacts the lives of many colon cancer survivors, advocates, and caregivers. Over the past seven years, charity and community impact have been at the core of the event, with the Exact Sciences partnership taking those efforts to new heights in recent years. The First Tee Tucson and Tucson Conquistadores provide children in need with the character-building experience of participating in sports. Since 1962, the Conquistadores have contributed more than $40 million to youth athletic programs.
