After his first season as a professional, Reid Travis sought out a comprehensive training program that would improve his game. So he left his hometown of Minneapolis and spend the five months at the Sanford Sports Complex in Sioux Falls.

“One of the things that drew me to Sanford was that there are some other places where you are just a number. You’re thrown into a workout group and you’re just another guy working out for the summer. But I felt like everyone here went the extra mile to make this feel comfortable and make it feel like home.” – Reid Travis, McDonald’s All-American and All-Pac 12 selection

About the Championship Trophy

At the culmination of the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic, the championship team will take home the tournament’s custom trophy, created by artisan sculptor and jeweler Malcolm DeMille. Born to renowned artist Leslie B. DeMille, DeMille has created acclaimed trophies, gifts and awards in the United States for more than 30 years to serve a diverse clientele including the PGA and Fortune 500 companies.

His design for the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic represents the legacy and tradition of the tournament, pulling in polished wood that harkens to Heritage Court’s signature parquet floor. The trophy also uses the two-barred Cross of Lorraine, a symbol of rallying and refuge, that’s central to Sanford Health’s mission of improving the human condition and connecting people at the intersection of health and sports.

This trophy is the mark of a new era as traditions begin and legacies are celebrated at the Sanford Pentagon for years to come.
