2014 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open Champion Bernhard Langer will be rejoining our Field after a one-year absence in 2016. The World Golf Hall of Fame Member is a two-time Masters winner, taking the green jacket in both 1985 and 1993. He boasts an incredible 30 PGA TOUR Champions victories, including seven Senior Major Championships. In 2016 he secured a record fourth Charles Schwab Cup Title. In 1986 Langer became the sport's first official number one ranked player.
World Golf Hall of Fame Member Mark O’Meara will be joining us again in 2017 as the 1998 Masters Winner, a year in which he also won The Open Championship. O’Meara, the 2014 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open Runner-Up, boasts 16 PGA TOUR victories. He spent nearly 200 weeks in the top-10 of the Official World Golf Ranking from their debut in 1986 to 2000.
Fan Favorite Fuzzy Zoeller is one of three people in history to win the Masters in their first appearance at the Major (1979). He boasts another Major victory at the 1984 U.S. Open, as well a PGA TOUR Champions Major at the 2002 Senior PGA Championship.
Ian Woosnam boasts 52 professional victories, on both the European and PGA TOURS, his most notable victory at the 1991 Masters. The Wee Welshman will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame later this year.
