Wadkins Back to Defend in Florida

2006 Boeing ChampionshipSANDESTIN, Fla. -- Last year, Bobby Wadkins claimed his first Champions Tour title since 2001 by winning the Boeing Championship in wire-to-wire fashion.
Since then, Wadkins, the younger brother of Lanny, has won two more times: at the Ford Senior Players Championship last July and the ACE Group Classic in February of this season.
The younger Wadkins will be joined in the field this week by usual smattering of Champions Tour stars, including its newest major champion, Denis Watson, who won the Senior PGA Championship on Sunday for his first title of any kind in 23 years.
The GOLF CHANNEL will have seven combined hours of coverage this weekend beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET on each of the three days. Next week's event is the Principal Charity Classic (last year's Allianz Championship) where Gil Morgan is the defending champion.
