The full field for next week’s 31st annual Chubb Classic has been announced.
The PGA Champions Tour event, which will be held at TwinEagles, features a plethora of big names, including eight past champions of the event, 10 hall of famers, and nearly all of the top players on golf’s senior tour.
“This competitive field ensures for spectacular play and memorable performances,” tournament director Matt Hilliker said. “We look forward to celebrating the 31st year of the Chubb Classic with some of golf’s greatest legends.”
Among some of the big names on the list are defending champion Fred Couples, two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer, perennial golf fan favorite John Daly, and hall of famers Sandy Lyle, Colin Montgomerie, and Mark O’Meara.
“The Naples community has put forth tremendous support of the Chubb Classic for 30 years, and I’m excited to return to TwinEagles to compete in this year’s event,” said Couples. “Winning my first PGA TOUR Champions title here [Naples PGA TOUR Champions event] in 2010 was a special moment in my career, and I’m hopeful that I can build on that success next week.”
The gates open to fans on Tuesday with professional practice rounds, while the tournament begins on Friday. Tickets can be purchased at http://chubbclassic.com/
