The First Champions Tour Major of 2021

Yep, it's about time the Champions got to their majors. This year the Regions Tradition is back on the schedule and the previous champ is in prime form to defend.

Defending champion Steve Stricker

Steve Stricker got his first ever major at Graystone Golf & Country Club a couple of years back, but you could be forgiven if you think he's got too much on his mind to put up a good defense this time around. After all, the US Ryder Cup captain has his hands full this year trying to sort through his six captain's picks for the best team available.

That is, you could be forgiven if he wasn't playing so darn well. He's got a 4th place at the WM Phoenix Open earlier this season on the PGA Tour, as well as a 3rd (Cologuard Classic) and a win (Chubb Classic) on the Champions Tour. This simply isn't what you expect from a Ryder Cup captain with bigger things on his mind!

Of course he'll have plenty of competition but it's hard not to wonder if he isn't the favorite coming in.

GC's coverage starts today (Thursday) at 11am ET. The first major of the season is always interesting, no matter which tour it's on, simply because there's so much anticipation from the players. We saw some great stuff at the ANA Inspiration and the Masters; I have no doubt we'll get some fireworks from the old guys this week as well.
