The JCPenney Classic tournament was the last of its kind. The history of mixed team events actually dates back to the 1960s, before it came to a halt at the turn of the century. Its reintroduction has been welcomed by the golfers.

‘A long time coming’

Back in March, after the Grant Thornton schedule was announced, Cole Hammer had thrown his weight behind the event, saying: “I think this has been a long time coming.” Hammer had earlier played in mixed-team events like the Palmer Cup.

Mixed-sex sport isn’t something new. Sports such as lawn tennis, table tennis, badminton and bowling have embraced it a long time ago. It has come to athletics as well. In golf also, it used to be a part of the circuit. In fact, in many American universities, the men’s and women’s golf teams train alongside each other. Grant Thornton is reviving an old tradition.
