European TourCRANS-SUR SIERRE, Switzerland - Last year, Bradley Dredge scorched Crans-sur-Sierre for four rounds in the 60s, with his opening 68 his worst score of the week.
 
Dredge shot 17 under and won by eight over two players for his second tour title at the Omega Masters. Only five players have won this crown two straight years and the last time it happened was in the late 1970s. Dredge is one of nine former champions scheduled to compete this week.
 
Jamie Spence came from 10 shots back on the final day to win here in 1992, setting a tour record for largest comeback win. That record was matched by Paul Lawrie at the '99 British Open Championship.
 
Crans-sur-Sierre has hosted this event every year dating back to 1939 and is hosting for the 61st time in all.
 
The GOLF CHANNEL will cover all four rounds. Next week is the Mercedes-Benz Championship, a new event on the schedule.
