NOTES
Bernhard Langer cruised to victory at this event last year, but it was one of just three top-10 finishes on the season. Langer injured his thumb a couple weeks after this win and missed significant time. He played the following week at the Toshiba Classic, then didn`t return to the tour until the U.S. Senior Open, which was the last weekend in July. The German opened with a 64, then carded consecutive 66s on the weekend to win by four strokes over Fred Funk. Langer has finished in the top four in all three of his starts at this tournament. The field includes 10 of the last 14 champions, including two-time winners Loren Roberts and Hale Irwin. Golf Channel has tape-delayed coverage all week. After a three-week break, the Champions Tour will return to action in California for the Toshiba Classic. Nick Price held off Mark Wiebe to win by a single stroke last year.
