Birmingham, AL (WIAT)-The Champions Tour will tee things up this week for the Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek.
As one of five majors, Shoal Creek never disappoints.
We’re told the golf course hasn’t looked this good in almost 8 years and Tuesday the pros got the chance to make their own assessments during practice.
The field includes six World Golf Hall of Famers: Hale Irwin, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Larry Nelson and Fred Couples.
Also a familiar name to this major event is Tom Lehman.
Lehman returns to Birmingham with a chance to not only defend his title but to capture a three-peat.
A win this weekend would enter him into the ranks with Hale Irwin becoming just the second player to win a major championship on the Champions Tour three years in row.
