The Tradition was founded by real estate developer Lyle Anderson in 1989 to honor the game's great champions. It was hosted by the Golf Club of Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, Ariz., a Lyle Anderson property, from 1989-2001 before moving to another Anderson property in 2002, nearby Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club. Jack Nicklaus is the only four-time winner of the Lyle Anderson Trophy, awarded annually to the tournament champion.
