It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. The Championship is always a proud week for Whirlpool Corporation and the KitchenAid brand, and we are thrilled to have you join us for all of the exciting events and activities we have in store both virtually and in person at Southern Hills Country Club.
The health and safety of our volunteers, fans and players has always been our top priority. We have worked closely with the PGA and local health officials to safely bring this incredible Championship to the area, and to showcase Tulsa across the globe.
During Championship week, you can expect a variety of culinary experiences and product displays from KitchenAid. The KitchenAid Fairway Club located at Southern Hills is a fun experience geared towards the entire family, featuring cooking demonstrations, putting competitions, our signature KitchenAid Smoothie Shoppe, and more. KitchenAid Chef Chris Covelli and a lineup of local chefs will be on hand to showcase favorite recipes and answer culinary questions all while inspiring your inner maker in and out of the kitchen. If you can’t make it out to the Fairway Club, or you miss one of the cooking demonstrations, we will be streaming much of what happens in the Fairway Club for all to view at srpgachampionship.com.
Hosting the Championship in Tulsa is extra special for us, since the city is home to our Whirlpool Corporation Tulsa plant and its 1,700 employees. The Tulsa plant is part of our investment in America, with 21,000 U.S. based employees, including 15,000 in our nine plants. Our Tulsa plant is proud to make ranges for consumers all across North America. We could not be more thrilled to bring this memorable Championship experience to our Whirlpool Corporation family in Tulsa.
We are proud of what the partnership between KitchenAid and the PGA of America has been able to accomplish so far, and we are confident that the 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship will be our best one yet. We know that Tulsa is a big golf community as well as a foodie town. Together, we will continue to bring communities together through cooking and golf to create cherished memories.
We look forward to hosting you and your family at the 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.
