PGA TOUR Champions and Grail, LLC have announced a partnership to host a new professional golf tournament in Rancho Mirage next March. The Galleri Classic, named after biotechnology company GRAIL’s multi-cancer early detection test for people over 50, will debut March 20 - 26, 2023 at the Mission Hills Country Club (the host course for what is now the Chevron Championship for 51 years). This marks the first time PGA TOUR Champions has hosted a tournament in Coachella Valley since 1993.

The Galleri Classic will feature 78 PGA TOUR Champions professionals, including World Golf Hall of Fame members, who will play 54 holes of stroke play for a purse of $2.2 million.
