Yesterday, team member Chelsea attended the exclusive launch party to celebrate The Northern Trust and the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs!
The Northern Trust is the first of three events as part of the FedEx Cup Playoffs during the PGA Tour Season. Featuring 125 players, some of the best golfers compete to advance. The Northern Trust has also generated nearly $50 million for charities in the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan area since the tournament’s inception in 1967.
Want to catch the action in person? Here’s what you need to know!
