Kyle Reifers, Theo Humphrey highlight 2022 preview day
GLENVIEW, Ill. – Korn Ferry Tour standouts Kyle Reifers and Theo Humphrey joined officials from NV5, Old National Bank and the Western Golf Association and other special guests Monday to preview the 2022 NV5 Invitational presented by Old National Bank at The Glen Club.
Reifers and Humphrey are both expected to be in the field May 26-29 when golf’s future stars return to Glenview. They’ll be attempting to join past NV5 Invitational champions Scottie Scheffler, Curtis Thompson and Cameron Young, who are all playing on the PGA TOUR this year.
Scheffler has four wins this season, including the Masters, and is the No. 1 player in the world.
“Each week there’s a 150 guys bringing their ‘A’ game,” Reifers said. “If you can win out here, it’s been proven that you can win at the next level as well.”
General admission to the NV5 Invitational is complimentary, courtesy of a partnership with SERVPRO of Glenview. Fans can go online to register for their complimentary tickets or purchase an upgraded experience in The Hangar presented by Corona Premier, a premium hospitality venue with unparalleled views of the 18th green at The Glen Club.
All proceeds benefit the event’s sole charity, the Evans Scholars Foundation, which offers full tuition and housing scholarships to deserving caddies across the nation. There are 1,070 Evans Scholars enrolled in 21 leading universities nationwide this year.
Northwestern Evans Scholar Jonathan Kriarakis, a caddie at Flossmoor Golf Club in Flossmoor, Illinois, shared what the Evans Scholarship has meant to his family during the preview event.
“Even today, I am still realizing the blessing that it is to have this Scholarship,” Kriarakis said. “It means more than financial freedom. It means more than a college education. It means hardworking parents and students are both valued for their work ethic and recognized for their resilience.”
