Bob Hope British Classic Golf Tournament

The PGA Tour tournament that Bob Hope's name was on for decades is still played and well-known; the defunct European Tour event that carried his name much less so. This was also a pro-am, but Hope's name was dropped after the fourth iteration. Then it had almost as many names as it did champions.

First played: 1980

Last played: 1991

Also known as: Four-Stars National Pro-Celebrity, London Standard Four-Stars National Pro-Celebrity, Wang Four Stars National Pro-Celebrity, Wang Four Stars, European Pro-Celebrity
