RSS

The Senior PGA Tour and the Liberty Mutual Group have reached an agreement to extend the sponsorship of the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf through 2006.
 
The Legends of Golf was first played in 1978 with Liberty Mutual assuming the sponsorship in 1980.
 
'It's a great pleasure for us to continue our long association with this historic tournament and its legendary players,' said Edmund F. Kelly, the chairman and president of Liberty Mutual.
 
The 25th edition of the tournament was played this year under a slightly different format. It was the first time the Legends of Golf was played as a 54-hole individual stroke-play competition and an official money event.
 
There was also a 36-hole, two-man better-ball competition featuring two divisions - Raphael (50-69 years old) and Demaret (70+ years old) - playing for unofficial money.
 
Doug Tewell posted a two-under 70 in the final round to win the stroke-play competition, while Bruce Lietzke and Bill Rogers partnered to win the Raphael division.
 
Miller Barber and Jim Ferree teamed to win the Demaret division.
