Cumberland University Announces Annual Tyler McChurch Memorial Golf Tournament to be Held on May 23


The eighth annual Tyler McChurch Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on May 23 at 9 a.m. at Pine Creek Golf Course.

The McChurch family established the Tyler McChurch Memorial Scholarship in 2014 soon after tragically losing their son Tyler in a car accident at the age of 29. At Cumberland, Tyler was a standout student athlete on the football team and graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in 2007.

Each year, the Tyler McChurch Memorial Golf Tournament raises vital funds for student scholarships at Cumberland and across Wilson County. With over $30,000 raised in 2021, Cumberland University and the McChurch family hopes to raise even more scholarships in their son’s memory this year.

“The tournament is always a bittersweet time,” said Dan McChurch, Tyler’s father. “We are so proud to honor Tyler and to know the scholarship funds raised are changing young athletes’ lives.”
