My "5 to Watch" at the SENIOR PLAYERS

Oh yeah, we got TWO majors this week! The Champions Tour is playing the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship so I need to pick my "5 to Watch " for them as well.

Bernhard Langer at last year's event

Bernhard Langer was last year's winner but I'm not sure he's in form to really contend this year. (Yes, it pains me to say that.) And Miguel Angel Jimenez isn't playing this week. (He WILL be in EA Sports' new PGA Tour video game though. It may be your only chance to play like him!) So I'll have to look elsewhere for my picks:
  • Kenny Perry plans to focus on the Champions Tour from now on... and that starts this week. I think this decision to play one tour (that's what he says, anyway) will pay big dividends. That could start this week, as he already has 3 Senior majors so he knows how to get it done.
  • Colin Montgomerie is probably the favorite this week. He only has 3 Champions Tour wins but all 3 are majors!
  • Brian Henninger had been doing commentary for GC before he reached 50. Now he's splitting his time between TV and golf... and he seems to be doing well at both. He's got a T4 and a T2 in his last two starts.
  • Tom Pernice Jr. always seems to play well but he hasn't won much lately. However he has 6 Top10s this season -- better than most of the other players -- so I'm going to show him a little love as well.
  • And my flier is Billy Andrade. His only win on the Champions Tour is the Legends team event but I think it's time he stepped up and got the job done on his own.
Nobody on the Champions Tour has won more than once this season but it's really hard to pick against Monty. You can argue that he's playing better than anybody except the Mechanic -- and, as I said, he's not in the field. But I like Henninger as a dark horse.
