Memorial Health Championship looks ahead after COVID

Taylor Moore gets doused with beer after sinking his putt on the No. 18 hole to finish at 27-under and win the Korn Ferry Tour’s 2021 Memorial Health Championship presented by LRS.

The Memorial Health Championship presented by Levi, Ray & Shoup presented its largest donation on Wednesday. 

Last year’s professional golf tournament at Panther Creek Country Club generated $50,000 for Memorial Health’s various foundations in Springfield, Decatur, Jacksonville, Taylorville and Lincoln.  

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for Memorial to provide that economic boost to central Illinois but at the same time the tournament then has the charitable proceeds going back to the foundation, and then we’ll put that back into the community and help many organizations with their health-related projects,” said Melissa Hansen Schmadeke, executive director of the Springfield Memorial Foundation.

The Memorial Health System, a community-based, not-for-profit health care organization, became the title sponsor last year. Its contract runs through 2025.
