The Champions Tour has announced its 2007 Schedule.
There have been a couple of additions to last year’s schedule, and one major switch.
New in 2007 will be the Principal Charity Classic in the Des Moines, Iowa area, and the Ginn Championship in Florida. The Dick’s Sporting Good Open will be played at the En-Joie Golf Course in Endicott, NY, replacing the PGA Tour’s BC Open, which was a staple of that area for 34 years.
The Allianz Championship, which was formerly played in Des Moines—now replaced by the Principal Charity Classic—will move to Boca Raton, Florida in February. That will give the Senior Tour three Florida Events in February.
For me, though, the most significant change is the change in venue and sponsorship of the Senior Players Championship. Ford’s abandoment of golf led the Senior Players Championship to move from Dearborn to Baltimore, where it will be known as the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship. I’m just glad that I took my ten year old to see the Seniors last summer. He had a great day, and still talks about how Gary Player came over to the ropes to talk to him as we followed him down the fairway. He didn’t know who Gary Player was at the time, but now he asks about the Black Knight every time there’s a tournament on tv.
The full schedule follows:
