NORMAN, Okla. – Officials from the Korn Ferry Tour and HNS Sports Group announced today that the Compliance Solutions Championship, an official event of the Korn Ferry Tour, contested annually at Jimmie Austin Golf Club in Norman, Okla., is now owned and operated by HNS Sports Group, a golf event management company headquartered in Dublin, Ohio.

The second playing of the Compliance Solutions Championship will take place June 17–23, 2024, and will feature a purse of $1 million. The tournament field will include 156 Korn Ferry Tour professionals competing over 72 holes of stroke play, with a cut to the top-65 players and ties after 36 holes. Anera Sports of Dallas managed the inaugural championship in 2023.

“On behalf of our membership and staff at the Korn Ferry Tour, we are thrilled to have HNS Sports Group as the new owner and operator of the Compliance Solutions Championship,” said Korn Ferry Tour President Alex Baldwin. “Dan Sullivan and his team at HNS Sports Group have done a fantastic job with several tournaments on our Tour, as well as the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions, and we are confident that they will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Compliance Solutions Championship.”

“HNS is excited to grow the Compliance Solutions Championship, both on the Korn Ferry Tour and in the state of Oklahoma,” Dan Sullivan, president and managing partner of HNS Sports Group, said. “Moreover, it is a pleasure to introduce Lucas Fox as the new tournament director, set to lead an Oklahoma-based team for HNS, who brings 150 years of collective industry experience to the event.”

“On behalf of the entire Compliance Solutions team, we are proud to be working with HNS Sports Group to provide a first-class experience for the golf fans in Oklahoma,” said Mark Lammert, Compliance Solutions CEO. “We are excited for what is in store with this year’s Compliance Solutions Championship and to share more details soon about a brand-new, celebrity event that I know will bring a unique and memorable element to the tournament week schedule.”

In addition to new leadership, tournament officials announced today a new event logo that prominently features the state of Oklahoma as well as a state-of-the-art website where fans can go to learn more about the tournament.

“I am honored to serve as tournament director for the Compliance Solutions Championship and look forward to being a part of the Oklahoma community,” Lucas Fox, tournament director, said. “I invite you to learn about the many ways to get involved with this exciting event. Whether through volunteering, buying tickets or becoming a sponsor, there is really something for everyone. This event is sure to be a best-in-class Korn Ferry Tour stop and is well positioned to positively impact charitable causes in Oklahoma.”
