| ||The Senior Players Championship is the fifth and final major of the season
for the Champions Tour. The first four majors were captured by Tom Lehman
(Senior PGA Championship), Bernhard Langer (Senior British Open and U.S.
Senior Open) and Fred Funk (JELD-WEN Tradition). Langer picked up his majors
in back-to-back weeks and remains one of the hottest players in the world on
any tour. He has five wins overall this year and was in the mix for No. 6
last week at the Ensure Classic. The tournament was ultimately won by Gary
Hallberg with a final-round 61. Fred Couples, chasing his fourth victory of
the season, missed an eight-foot birdie putt on the last hole with a chance
to force a playoff. Last year`s Senior Players Championship was won by Jay
Haas, who carded a 64 on Sunday to come from behind and beat Tom Watson by
one shot. Following the tournament, the Champions Tour will be off for one
week, returning on Oct. 22 for the Administaff Small Business Classic, where
John Cook won last year.
