Champions Tour in Quebec

Michael Allen ... leading the tour money list

THE US Champions Tour detours to Quebec this weekend and into some very viewer friendly live television coverage times in Australia.

Peter Senior will be the lone Australian battling a quality field at the US$1.8 million 2012 Montreal Championship at the Richelieu Valley Golf Club, half an hour out of the city.

The defending champion is John Cook and also on hand will be Michael Allen who finished tied for 56th at the Olympic Club in the US Open at the weekend.

Coming 56th might not sound too exciting but that’s ignoring the fact he beat the likes of Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald and actually made the cut.

The 53-year-old Californian is the only two-time winner on the Champions Tour this season and is the leading money winner.

“Am I surprised? Not really,” Allen said this week in Montreal. “The fact is I’ve been so close for a while and now it feels like well, since I’ve been so close, I kinda should be (winning).”

The 2012 Montreal Championship is receiving life coverage on Fox Sports in Australia at the following times:

Round 1; Saturday 23rd June, 8.30am-10.30am. Round 2; Sunday 24th June, 8.30am-11.30am. Final Round; Monday 25th June, 9am-11.30am, with a repeat 5pm-6.30pm.
