Charles Schwab Cup Championship Champions Tour
Champions Tour is a part of the PGA Tour that was founded in 1980 as the Senior PGA Tour, functioning as a separate tour for
golfers aged 50 and older and has seen some of the biggest names in golf take part. For decades the Senior PGA Championship
was the only big event for golfers fifty and over but that all changed in 1978 when the success of the Legends of Golf tournament
gave way to the Champions Tour which would form two years later. The Charles Schwab Cup Championship has gone under several
different monikers and been held at several separate locations before settling on San Francisco in 1993. Various big name
golfers including Fred Couples, Jim Thorpe, Mike Hill, Tom Watson, and others have won the tournament and each year the action
grows more intense. The 2014 contest should be the biggest and most hotly contested Charles Schwab Cup Championship to date.
Do not hesitate to make the necessary reservations to be there as the best of the best of the Champions Tour go head to head
for the Charles Schawb Cup Championship, the tour's season ending event.
Throughout the entire
Champions Tour, the golfers are fighting to assure that they will be among the top thirty money earners come season's end
so they are bestowed the honor of participating in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. After working so hard all season there
is no way they are just going to lay down and not put up a fight at the season's final event. These are some of the best golfers
of all time and much of what made them so great, aside from incredible skill, is their dedication and unrelenting desire to
win. Simply being a part of the Champions Tour requires that a golfer has made a name for himself and established himself
as one of the best golfers of his generation during his earlier career. Thus, making it all the way to the Charles Schwab
Cup Championship as one of the premiere golfers on the tour is not a task easily accomplished. Each golfer is simply the best
of the best in their age group, and possibly beyond in many cases, and these athletes are guaranteed to put on an incredible
show. Get ready for some world class golf and make your way to TPC Harding Park in Fall of 2014.
it can be fun and relaxing to watch professional golf on a nice flatscreen television back at home, but you don't really get
a feel for the action and an understanding of the elements the golfers are battling unless you are out on the links. Spending
a lovely Fall day outside walking a beautiful course and seeing the best golfers in the world do battle against one another
is an experience you will never forget and will likely have you never wanting to settle for watching from your couch ever
again. As the days and holes wear on, the tension builds and each stroke becomes more and more vital. The nervous tension
in the air builds and this can be felt both by the golfers swinging their clubs and the fans following them from hole to hole
holding their breath with each approach to the ball. A trip to SAn Francisco in Fall is vital for any golf lover who wants
