The Champions Tour opens the 2009 season with an eight-man Skins Game that will be missing one of the defending champions. Last year, Peter Jacobsen and Fuzzy Zoeller won six skins and $320,000 thanks to a victory on the first playoff hole, where they faced Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus. Jacobsen is hurt and was forced to withdraw from the event. Ben Crenshaw replaced him as Zoeller`s partner. The tour has its first full-field event next week with the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai, where Fred Funk won last year.
