A host of changes to 2012 Champions Tour schedule

RSS

The Champions Tour revealed its 2012 schedule on Wednesday, reflecting a host of changes.

The tour has seven new tournament venues for its 23-event docket. The ACE Group Classic, Montreal Championship, Charles Schwab Cup Championship and four of the tour's five major championships will be at new sites. 

The Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship will move to Fox Chapel GC in Pittsburgh for its third site in the last three years.

A number of tournaments also shuffled positions on the schedule for 2012.

The Houston-based Insperity (formerly Administaff) Classic moves from October to the first week in May. 

The Regions Tradition moves down one month into the first week June from its May debut last year at Shoal Creek. Ending the month is the new spot for the Senior Players.

Due to flooding caused by Hurricane Irene, the Dick's Sporting Goods Open will move back two months to August to allow En-Joie GC to be restored for play.

The Greater Hickory Classic also leaves June, but for October, to create a North Carolina swing to start the month.

The entire month of September remains TBD for 2012, with no official events scheduled in any of three slots. The only event missing from the schedule altogether, however, is the tour's stop in Korea. 

The Champions Skins Game is also not on the calendar.
