NOTES
The first Champions Tour event of the season was the kick off for an outstanding 2009 campaign for Bernhard Langer. Langer opened with an eight-under 64 and held off Andy Bean with rounds of 66-68 on the weekend at last year`s Mitsubishi Electric Championship. The win for Langer was the first of four on the season. Bean made a hard charge over the final two rounds, shooting 66-66 to end one stroke back. This week also marks the official Champions Tour debut of Fred Couples. He played in the Wendy`s Champions Skins Game last weekend. The former Masters champion stated last week that he will split time between the PGA and Champions Tours this season before moving full-time to the Champions Tour in 2011. Golf Channel has coverage of all three days of action. After two weeks off, the Champions Tour returns to action in Florida with the ACE Group Classic, where Loren Roberts is the defending champion.
