FedEx St. Jude Classic
Youth Programs, Inc. was established in 1958 and chartered in 1960 as a non-profit organization to run a professional golf tournament in Memphis, Tenn., and raise funds for youth-oriented charities. In 1970, YPI chose St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its sole beneficiary. Since that date, St. Jude has realized more than $26 million as a direct result of its affiliation with the tournament and the PGA TOUR. YPI is the governing body of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and, by contract with the PGA TOUR, serves as host organization of the Memphis TOUR stop.
