Greater Milwaukee Open

 

The Greater Milwaukee Open is a former PGA Tour golf tournament played for approximately 40 years from the late 1960s until nearly 2010. The tournament ended when its last title sponsor (it was at that point called the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee) withdrew its support. Despite the efforts of Wisconsin natives Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly to help find a new sponsor, none was forthcoming. Tiger Woods played his first tournament as a pro golfer at the 1996 Greater Milwaukee Open.

First played: 1968

Last played: 2009

Also known as: U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee
