BARRINGTON, Rhode Island – Good things come in threes!
CVS Health Charity Classic Co-Host Billy Andrade, Keegan Bradley and Brooke Henderson claimed the CVS Health Charity Classic for the third consecutive year in a row. This win also marks Keegan Bradley’s fifth CVS Health Charity Classic victory.
The CVS Health Charity Classic, which has donated $22 million to Southern New England charities, brought some world-class talent to the scenic Rhode Island Country Club on a picture-postcard type of New England summer day.
Bradley broke a PGA TOUR record by becoming the first ever PGA TOUR athlete to win the same tournament for five straight years. In 2018, Bradley joined Tiger Woods and Walter Hagen as the third ever PGA TOUR athlete to win the same tournament for four years running.
The 2019 season has brought immense success to the winning team. Bradley tied for second at the Travelers Championship on Sunday June 23, just one day before participating in the Charity Classic, while Andrade has earned six top 10 finishes this season. Henderson broke the Canadian record for most Tour wins after claiming her second LPGA title of the season at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give on June 16.
Golf fans from Southern New England enjoyed another exciting day of competition as they watched the champions approach 18 green just one shot ahead of the runner ups, Lexi Thompson, Kevin Kisner and Darren Clarke. The group held their composure and solidified the win with par on the final hole. Each of the six teams had a player from the PGA Tour, Champions Tour and LPGA.
