Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center Tees Up Partnership With The PGA Tour Champions Bridgestone Senior Players Championship

6/7/2022

Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center announces its support of the 2022 Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, which will be held Wednesday, July 6 through Sunday, July 10 at Firestone Country Club in Akron.  

This annual event draws thousands of spectators to see golf legends compete at the famed South Course. The Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship is the 14th event on the 2022 PGA TOUR Champions schedule and represents one of the largest purses for the 27 tour stops. It started in 1983 as one of the five major championships on the PGA TOUR Champions. This is the first year that Crystal Clinic will serve as a supporter.

“As the nationally renowned and #1 ranked orthopaedic hospital system in Ohio, we are committed to getting our patients back to the activities they enjoy most, whether that means participating in competitive sports or leading an active, independent lifestyle. Golf is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime, so this event is a natural fit for us and a perfect opportunity to align our nationally-renowned orthopaedic care with a major, international sporting event in Ohio,” said Paul Fleissner, M.D., Chairman of the Board of Managers at Crystal Clinic and pediatric orthopaedic surgeon. “We are proud to be part of the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, which shines a national spotlight on Northeast Ohio.”

That sentiment is shared by organizers of the tournament.

“We are excited for the 2022 Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship this July and thank Crystal Clinic for their involvement and support,” said Don Padgett, executive director of the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. 

At its 12 locations across Northeast Ohio, Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center treats all types of orthopaedic conditions affecting the hand and wrist, elbow, shoulder, foot and ankle, hip, knee, spine and neck. Imaging services and therapy are offered at most clinics.
