TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The PGA Tour Champions are back in Tucson for the 2021 Cologuard Classic.
78 of the game’s best players will compete for a $1.7 million purse and the field is one of the best to ever tee it up in a PGA TOUR Champions event. There are ten Hall of Famers, 20 major champions and 57 players with a combined 419 PGA TOUR wins. The returning champ, Bernhard Langer is hoping to repeat his win last year.
“They’re great feelings. The’re positive. You feel like you know how to play the golf course. Of course, you have good memories. Even remember certain shots and how you pulled them off. I’ve played here a number of times so I should know where to go and not to go, it doesn’t mean I can always pull it off but it’s always nice to go to a course you’ve won, because you feel you can do it again,” said Bernhard Langer, 2020 Cologuard Classic Champion.
The Tucson Conquistadores are once again hosting this year’s tournament, raising money for local youth sports and supporting colon cancer awareness.
