Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf Starts Today

AUGH! It's Easter weekend, my friends are on vacation and all kinds of things are going on... and when I finally cranked up my computer this afternoon, I realized I had forgotten to do today's post! So I'll make this brief.

I just wanted to make sure everyone remembers that the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf tournament starts today on Golf Channel. (CBS has the last two days.) This is the tournament that really got the Champions Tour started, and it may be the most enjoyable event on the whole tour.

Past champions Watson and North
Four-time winners Tom Watson and Andy North are playing together again this year.

It's a two-man team event, and you get to see some unusual teams like Jumbo Ozaki and Ian Baker-Finch, or Andy Bean and Chien Soon Lu. And there are three different divisions -- the Demaret Division, the Raphael Division and the Legends Division. The Champions Tour site has an article explaining all the divisions, but here's a quick summary:

The Demaret Division is for players 70 and older, and they played Monday and Tuesday. Gibby Gilbert and J.C. Snead won this division.

The Raphael Division plays Friday and Saturday, and features players who don't play full Champions Tour schedules and/or are otherwise ineligible for the official 54-hole competition. The defending champs in this division are John Bland and Graham Marsh.

And the Legends Division is the main event. Mark O'Meara and Nick Price are the defending champions in this division.

So if you find a few spare moments this weekend, you might want to peek in and see how the old guys are doing. Like I said, it's one of the most fun events of the year.
