BOCA RATON, Fla. –  Tom Lehman looks to continue feasting on the Champions Tour when he begins the defense of his title at the Allianz Championship Friday.

His victory at last year’s Allianz Championship kick-started a season in which Lehman won the Charles Schwab Cup, the money title and was named by his peers as the Champions Tour’s player of the year.

That honor completed a rare trifecta. Lehman became the first golfer to be named Player of the Year on the Nationwide Tour (1991), PGA Tour (1996) and Champions Tour.

Lehman will have his work cut out this year at the Allianz Championship.
