RSS

2006 Regions Charity Classic BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- He's a World Golf Hall of Fame member, a five-time major champion, the all-time European Tour wins leader, and he's got a trophy named after him.
 
And this week, Seve Ballesteros will make his debut on the Champions Tour.
 
'The Champions Tour just received another dose of charisma with the exciting news of Seve's debut,' said Champions Tour president, Rick George. 'We couldn't be more delighted.'
 
Ballesteros, a nine-time PGA TOUR winner with 79 international victories, turned 50 on April 9th and will become the third high-profile addition to the senior's circuit this year after Nick Price and Mark O'Meara.
 
He's doing it at one of the Champions Tour's premier non-major events, the Regions Charity Classic, where Brad Bryant shot a 64 on Sunday to beat Mark McNulty by two shots last year.
 
GOLF CHANNEL will have coverage of all three rounds beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET each day. Next week is the season's first major, the Senior PGA Championship, where 2006 Schwab Cup winner Jay Haas beat Brad Bryant in a playoff last year for his first major championship title.
