NOTES:
The Champions Tour travels to Canada this week for the Quebec Championship. Five of the top-10 players on the money list are in the field - Jay Haas (3), Jeff Sluman (6), Michael Allen (8), Gene Sauers (9) and Kirk Triplett (10).

The 2010 tournament was the first time that the Champions Tour has played in Canada since the 2002 AT&T Senior Open Championship in Ontario, won by Tom Jenkins. The only other time a Champions Tour event was held in Quebec was the 1999 AT&T Senior Open Championship, won by Jim Ahern at Vallee du Richelieu.

Last year, Esteban Toledo chipped in for a birdie on the third playoff hole to defeat Kenny Perry. Toledo carded a 3-under 69 in the final round at La Vallee du Richelieu Golf Club's Rouville Course to finish the tournament at 5-under- par 211 with Perry.

John Cook posted rounds of 63-66-66 in 2011 to win by three shots over Chien Soon Lu. Cook finished the tournament at 21-under-par 195 for his third win of 2011 and eighth tour victory. He easily set a new tournament scoring record with his total of 195. Larry Mize established the old mark of 199 in 2010. It was the second time that Cook won in Canada, as he captured the 1983 Canadian Open on the PGA Tour.

In 2010, former Masters champion Mize fired an 8-under 64 in the final round to win his first title on the Champions Tour. He finished 54 holes at 17-under 199, good for a 1-shot win over second-round leader Cook. It was his first win at a PGA Tour-sanctioned event in 16 years, 10 months and 26 days.

The Champions Tour moves to Hawaii in two weeks for the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship at Kapolei Golf Club, where Mark Wiebe is the defending champion.
