SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus and two-time PGA Championship winner Dave Stockton will play in an exhibition nine-hole, match-play event during the Sanford International at Minnehaha Country Club Sept. 21.

“Last year’s EMC Legends Series was a fun afternoon spent playing golf with good friends in front of a gallery full of enthusiastic crowds, and I’m excited to come back to Sioux Falls to take part in it again,” said Jack Nicklaus. “The support we felt that afternoon from the community proved that the Dakotas deserve major events like the Sanford international.”

The EMC Legends Series will announce two additional players at a later date.

Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and Dave and Cathy Stockton will be on the first tee during the opening ceremonies as their sons Gary and Dave Jr. compete in the regular tournament as sponsor exemptions. The Sept. 16-22 tournament, a PGA TOUR Champions event, will feature a $1.8 million purse.

Tickets to the Sanford International are available online at, at the Sanford Pentagon, regional Austad’s Golf locations or by calling 877-748-3376.
