The Champions Tour returns to action after a one-week break with the SAS Championship. Russ Cochran only needed a one-under 71 in the final round last year to collect his second straight Champions Tour title. Cochran finished two strokes clear of 2009 winner Tom Pernice, Jr. Two weeks earlier in South Korea, Cochran took down Fred Funk in a playoff. The two victories were Cochran`s first on the senior circuit and he added another big title earlier this year. The 52-year-old Cochran fired back-to-back 67s on the weekend to beat Mark Calcavecchia at the Senior British Open. That was Cochran`s first major title of any kind. Tom Kite will make a little history this week. The 61-year-old will make his 1,000th combined start on the PGA and Champions Tours. Kite will become the 12th player with over 1,000 combined starts. Miller Barber tops that list, as he competed in 1,292 PGA and Champions Tour events. Golf Channel has the broadcast all week. The Champions Tour will be in Texas next week for the Insperity Championship. U.S. Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples cruised to a seven-stroke win last year, thanks in part to a final-round, nine-under 63.
