2019 BMW Charity Pro-Am on Tour

The Tour formed in 1990 as the developmental league for the PGA Tour. The BMW Charity Pro-Am in Greenville, S.C. is their only event that pairs celebrity golfers with the pros. NFL Quarterback Brett Favre made his first appearance at the Thornblade Country Club for the 2019 event, and he made quite a splash for the sports fans at this golf tournament. A rainy forecast brought 3,5-inches to the course on Friday and Saturday, and these challenging conditions hurt attendance and caused several long weather delays.

The format for the 2019 tournament, presented by the Synnex Corporation, changed from a four-course rotation to a two-course rotation. The Thursday and Friday rounds were played at both Thornblade and the Cliffs Valley course, with Saturday and Sunday rounds played only at Thornblade. Top celebrity Brett Favre teed off at Thornblade on Thursday at 12:30 and all players completed play. On Friday played at the Cliffs, but Friday's round was never completed due to weather, and he did not return to play more golf on the weekend.

The tournament concluded after the completion of the third round on Sunday, and the event was declared over. Pro Rhein Gibson wins the 2019 event with a score of 21-under par.
