Senior Tour Champ May Change Venues

RSS

The Senior Tour may leave the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area for the first time in seven years when it meets to decide the location of its 2001 Tour Championship
 
The weather is in the main obstacle. It was perfect this year, but the previous six years it was iffy, with temperatures reaching down into the 30s. The tournament also may lose its sponsor, IR, formerly Ingersoll-Rand. IR has sponsored the event three years.
 
If the tournament leaves, it would be the second major golf event to leave Myrtle Beach this year. The Kathy Ireland Greens.com LPGA Classic will move to California next year.
