HARRISON, N.Y. - The Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship will be at the Westchester Country Club this week for the final major championship of the Champions Tour season. The golf will begin Monday and run through Sunday.
The Westchester Country Club hosted a PGA tour event for 41 years until 2007.
"It is with great pride that Westchester Country Club welcomes championship golf back to the club and to the Westchester area," said Club President Nick Cammarano Jr. "We are excited to host the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship and to welcome back many of the same players who enjoyed playing the past PGA TOUR events staged at our club. We are also pleased that local charities will benefit from what we know will be a very well-received major golf tournament for the entire region."
The Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship typically attracts a field from the current tour season, including such names as defending champion Mark O'Meara, 2010 Champions Tour Player of the Year Bernhard Langer , Fred Couples , Tom Watson and Corey Pavin . Six current Champions Tour players are former champions of PGA TOUR events staged at Westchester Country Club, including Curtis Strange from 1980, Bob Gilder from 1982, Scott Simpson from 1984, Bob Tway from 1986, Hale Irwin from 1990 and David Frost from 1992.
"Westchester is a fantastic course in an area that loves golf as much as any region in the country," said PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem. "The Champions Tour players will be thrilled to have a course with as much history as Westchester Country Club host one of their major championships. The PGA tour enjoyed great success at Westchester Country Club and we know the Champions Tour will as well.
