BellSouth Classic

AT&T Classic

The AT&T Classic, formerly known as the BellSouth Classic, is a regular golf tournament on the PGA Tour. AT&T, which acquired BellSouth in 2006, is now the main title sponsor of the tournament. The tournament was founded in 1967 as the Atlanta Classic although previous events dating to 1934 are included in the PGA Tour's past winners list. From 1967–96, it was played at the Atlanta Country Club in Marietta, northwest of Atlanta. Since 1997, it has been played over the Stables and Meadows Courses at the TPC at Sugarloaf in Duluth, northeast of Atlanta. This event is not to be confused with the AT&T Champions Classic played in Valencia, California, a Champions Tour tournament which bore the "AT&T Classic" name in 2006, prior to AT&T's acquisition of BellSouth.

For many years the Atlanta tournament was usually held in May. From 1999–2006, it was played in early April, the week before the Masters. Since 2007, it has been held in mid-May, concluding on the third Sunday of the month, a week after the Players Championship (which was moved from late March). The AT&T Classic is a part of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup competition.
