The Fourth Champions Major of 2019

As we noted a couple of weeks back, the final three majors on the Champions Tour come one after the other. This week they play the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship.

Defending champion Vijay Singh

When Vijay Singh won this event last year, it was the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. Now it's the Bridgestone and has moved to the famous Firestone Country Club, where Tiger won eight WGC Invitationals.

At least the Champions Tour players don't have to worry about him yet.

The field will play the South Course, which usually plays 7400 yards from the tips at a par of 70. I have trouble believing the Champions will play it at that length though I haven't found anything that tells what yardage it will play. But Firestone has always separated the best from the rest, and we can expect the same this week.

The favorite going in is definitely Steve Stricker, who has won two of the year's three majors thus far. And with Stricker bypassing the John Deere (aka the Steve Stricker Annual Annuity Classic) to play in this event, you know he has to be feeling good about his chances.

GC has exclusive coverage of the event this week. Their broadcasts begin Thursday at 1:30pm ET.
