This year’s golf and health expo will be hosted by Peter Jacobsen, NBC Sports Commentator and PGA TOUR Champions Professional with 22 wins in a forty year career in professional golf, including two Majors on the Champions Tour.  

The 2017 UHS Golf Expo will begin at 4 PM with an afternoon of UHS-sponsored educational exhibitions on a wide range of health topics.  Attendees can also enjoy free refreshments and enter drawings for prizes.  Also, physicians, surgeons and other providers and clinical experts will be on hand to present information about orthopedics, sports medicine and health programs offered by UHS. People from across the Southern Tier will be able to join Peter Jacobsen as he hosts the event for the first time.  The clinic will begin at 6 PM.  Peter will host a live presentation, giving invaluable tips on how to improve participants’ golf swings and scores. 

“Mr. Jacobsen is one of the true legends of professional golf, and we’re very proud to have him as the host of our annual event in advance of the Open,” said Christina Boyd, vice president for Community Relations at UHS.  “This Expo will be a great opportunity for people in the community to meet Mr. Jacobsen, benefit from his golf insights and gain valuable information about lifelong wellness.”

"We are excited to continue our partnership with UHS and welcome Peter Jacobsen to this special event," said Tournament Director John Karedes.  "There isn't a nicer or more down-to-earth guy than Peter; he is going to host a fantastic afternoon for our community," added Karedes.
