What Do You Know? Another Champions Major!

After winning the Regions Tradition last week, Kenny Perry is after yet another Champions Tour major -- this time, the Senior PGA Championship.

And Perry is probably the best story this week as well.

Kenny Perry

You see, Kenny Perry has had his issues with the PGA, both on the regular PGA Tour and on the Champions Tour.

Last year he was in position to win the Senior PGA. He was 3 shots ahead with 6 holes to play, only to crash and burn while Kohki Idoki chased him down from 5 shots back.

And back in 1996 Perry had a single shot lead on the last hole of the "regular" PGA Championship. He took a bogey and ended up in a playoff where he was beaten by Mark Brooks.

That PGA was held in his home state of Kentucky, at Valhalla Golf Club -- the same place this year's regular PGA will be held. If Perry could manage to win this week, he'd punch his ticket back for another chance at the one that got away.

Of course, although most of his fellow Champions Tour players certainly feel for him -- many of them have felt the same heartbreak -- you can be sure they have no intention of letting him get his 4th consecutive Champions Tour major.

Oh, yes. There are a lot of storylines at this week's Senior PGA, such as the continued search for a major on any tour by popular players like John Cook, Rocco Mediate, and Colin Montgomerie; or Hale Irwin's attempt to win at age 68; or the continued battle for supremacy between Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples, and Jay Haas in the Charles Schwab Cup race. (Perry's win last week vaulted him into the running as well.) But there's no story quite as exciting as a tale of redemption...

Or a quest for revenge, if you prefer. Kenny Perry's out for both.
