RICHMOND, Virginia – Tournament officials announced today that John Daly and Rocco Mediate have each committed to play in the 2021 Dominion Energy Charity Classic, October 22-24 at The Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course.
“John and Rocco have always been fan favorites from their days on the PGA TOUR to now on the Champions Tour," said Executive Director Steve Schoenfeld. “We are thrilled to welcome the two of them back this year and I know how fans will enjoy following them on the James River Course.”
Daly, who won five-times on the PGA TOUR including two majors (1991 PGA Championship, 1995 The Open Championship), has one win (2017 Insperity Invitational) and 12 top-10s since joining PGA TOUR Champions in 2016. This season, Daly has played in 26 events, recording seven top-25 finishes. He has played at the Dominion Energy Charity Classic four times.
