Seniors Tune Up Before Senior Open

Champions TourEAST MEADOW, N.Y. -- The Commerce Bank Championship will be hard pressed to match last year's action as John Harris and Tom Jenkins went to a playoff.
Those two finished one stroke clear of Andy Bean, Gil Morgan and 2006 Player of the Year Jay Haas. In the playoff, Harris birdied the first extra hole to pick up his first professional title in his 97th career start.
What made Harris' win all the more special was the fact that he erased a five-stroke deficit to comeback and force the extra session. It was the largest comeback of the 2006 season.
Harris' win stopped Haas' streak of three straight wins last year. Haas shared third place in his first appearance at this event.
The GOLF CHANNEL will have coverage of all three rounds. This event serves as the final tune-up for the season's second major. Next week is the U.S. Senior Open at Whistling Straits, where Allen Doyle will go for his third straight win at that event.
