WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS -

Many people know the grand prize for the champion of the Masters, the Green Jacket.

In the Super Bowl, the winners receive a championship ring.

Now, the Greenbrier Resort is trying to live up to that legacy.

The ring is made by the Jostens Ring Company.

On the front of the ring,  shows the iconic spring house.

Engraved on the sides are the Greenbrier Classic logo and the Greenbrier Resort.

"Everyone gets a ring," said Jostens of West Virginia Owner, Wendell Samson. "I met with Mr. Justice
and came up with the idea of doing a Greenbrier Classic ring. SO it's really cool."

Samson says this is an historic event, because this is the ONLY professional golf event in the world
that gives the champion a ring and a sports jacket.
