Jamie Meade of Redmond will be among 240 amateurs who will compete in the Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational National Finals at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, South Carolina, March 21-25. Meade qualified for the national event by winning their local Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational held at The Golf Course at Newcastle in Newcastle on July 24, which supported Sea Mar Community Health Center.

The Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational National Finals is the culmination of a series of more than 75 charity golf tournaments around the country in 2017 hosted by Liberty Mutual and local and national charitable organizations that raised more than $9 million for charity.

“These foursomes were among more than 12,000 amateur golfers across the country who generously supported national and local charities by playing in the Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational,” said Nicole Guidara, senior vice president and manager, Enterprise Brand & Communications, Liberty Mutual Insurance. “We sincerely appreciate these players’ efforts and look forward to celebrating their invaluable contributions to their communities.”

Two-time U.S. Open Champion and World Golf Hall of Famer Curtis Strange, honorary chairman of the Liberty Mutual Invitational, will interact with players during the four-day tournament.

“I am proud and honored to be a part of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational,” said Strange. “In just the last eight years, this annual tournament for amateur golfers has raised over $55 million for so many worthwhile charities and the people that they serve.”

The Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational tournaments are single-day events featuring an 18-hole scramble format open to men and women amateur golfers of all skill levels in the local community.
