About The Classic

The Rudolph Canzater Memorial Classic was inaugurated over 25 years ago as the PIC (Palmetto Issues Conference) Classic. 

Each year, hundreds of elected officials, business and community leaders from around the country gather on the shores of South Carolina’s 110,000 acre Lake Marion at Santee to participate in the annual Rudolph Canzater Memorial Classic.

As in years past, proceeds from the Classic will fund need-based scholarships for high school graduates and college students who live in South Carolina’s 6th Congressional District, and the endowment that Jim Clyburn has established at South Carolina State University (SCSU). Over the history of this Tournament, we have funded over 500 scholarships and contributed over $500,000 to the James E. Clyburn Endowment at SCSU.
