Now for the First Champions Tour Major

It's finally time for the Champions Tour players to play a major. (Of course, some of them played at the Masters but that's not their major, if you know what I mean.) In this case, it's the Regions Tradition where Kenny Perry is the defending champion.

Although Kenny has played more PGA Tour events this season than Champions Tour events -- 7 versus 4 -- his best finishes have been on the "old guys tour," including a playoff loss at the Insperity Invitational just a couple of weeks ago. He should be in good form to mount his defense this week.

Fortunately for him, his competition will be somewhat less intimidating. Davis Love is out due to foot surgery, Vijay Singh is at the Wells Fargo Championship (here in NC, about 90 minutes south of me), and Miguel Angel Jimenez is over in Spain to defend his title at the Open de EspaƱa.

Unfortunately, Kenny is at #22 in the Schwab Cup Race... but with the exceptions of Jimenez and Rocco Mediate, it looks like everybody ahead of him is playing this week!

This should be a pretty good event. The Shoal Creek course has hosted 2 PGA Championships and usually gives the players all they can handle.

GC lists coverage starting Thursday at 12:30pm-2:30pm ET.
