For 22 years, SAS Championship week – full of golf and community events - has provided countless memories for fans and attendees young and old. Golfing legends have walked the fairways of Prestonwood Country Club each year, battling for one of the largest purses on the PGA Tour Champions.

PGA tour veteran Fred Couples won the 2022 SAS Championship, scoring 12-under par in the final round, good enough for the lowest round in SAS Championship history. Affectionately known as "Boom Boom," the World Golf Hall of Famer finished with a final tournament score of 20-under par.

Notably, 14 golf teams from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) competed in the inaugural SAS Championship HBCU Invitational.

This was an exciting opportunity to not only increase the diversity of golf but to inspire students to consider career opportunities inside and outside of sports. In addition to playing in the tournament, SAS hosted a Career Day at SAS world headquarters for student-athletes to learn more about career opportunities at SAS and resources to help them navigate their careers, as well as the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with employees and executives that extend beyond the SAS Championship.

Howard University's women's golf team won over North Carolina Central University (NCCU), Prairie View A&M University and Savannah State University (SSU).

On the men's side, Florida A&M University took home the Division I title over NCCU, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Chicago State University.

The Miles College Golden Bears won the tournament's Division II men's title. Competing against the Golden Bears were Virginia Union University, Livingstone College, SSU, Winston-Salem State University and Johnson C. Smith University.
