World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship

Back

The WGC-Cadillac Championship is a professional golf tournament, one of the four annual World Golf Championships. It is sanctioned and organized by the International Federation of PGA Tours and the prize money is official money on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour.

From 1999 through 2006, it was known as the WGC-American Express Championship. In 1999 and 2000 it was held in November, before moving to September/October. Since the start of the FedEx Cup in 2007, the event has been played in March. From 2007 to 2010, it was known as the WGC-CA Championship. After the 2010 event, CA Inc. announced the termination of their sponsorship of the tournament. It was announced on November 29, 2010 that Cadillac would be the new sponsor in a multi-year sponsorship deal beginning in 2011.

During its first eight years, the event was played at different locations in the United States and Europe. Since 2007 it has been played annually on the Blue Monster course, which was recently renovated as part of the Trump National Doral multi-million dollar resort transformation in Doral, Florida. Doral was previously the site of the Ford Championship at Doral, a regular stop on the PGA Tour in March for 45 consecutive years (1962–2006). However, due to the WGC records taking precedence over PGA Tour records, technically the Cadillac Championship succeeded the American Express event, not the Ford Championship.
