The AT&T Championship in San Antonio, Texas, is the final full-field event of the US Champions Tour 2012 season.
The top 30 on the money list at the conclusion of this event advance next week to the Charles Schwab Cup Championship at the Desert Mountain Club’s Cochise course in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Germany’s Bernhard Langer leads both the Charles Schwab Cup points list and the tour money list but there are still seven other golfers with at least a mathematical chance of winning the season-long Charles Schwab Cup.
The defending champion in Texas this week was to have been Fred Couples but he has been forced to withdraw due to continuing back problems.
Other major contenders this week include Tom Lehman, currently second in the cup standings, Michael Allen, Jay Don Blake, Mark O’Meara and Fred Funk.
Always another chance of course is Australia’s Peter Senior who at 11th in the Charles Schwab race can’t win the cup but can win a pile of money and lots of added prestige if he were to claim either of these two important titles as his first Champions Tour victory.
The AT&T Championship is being broadcast in Australia on Fox Sports.
1st Round: Saturday Midday – 1.30pm; 2nd Round: Sunday 10.30am – 12.00pm; Final Round Monday 10.30am – 12.00pm.
