Long, chairman and chief executive officer, Liberty Mutual Insurance. “We are truly grateful for the generosity of golfers like these foursomes who are equally committed to their communities and we are proud to partner with so many worthy local and national charities who serve individuals and families most in need.”

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 and conduct a clinic for the field.

“I am proud and honored to support the more than 12,000 golfers across the country who participated in this year’s Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational, an amateur golf tournament that has raised over $37 million for so many great charities in just six years,” said Strange.
