"We're thrilled to offer golf fans throughout Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale, as well as across Southern Arizona, the opportunity to not only attend three premier professional golf tournaments, but to also have the opportunity to play a PGA TOUR venue with rounds of golf at TPC Scottsdale through the PGA TOUR's Arizona Golf Pack," said Charles Schwab Cup Championship Executive Director Ian Knight. "Arizona sports fans have the unique opportunity to watch some of the greatest champions in golf history at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship this fall, then turn around and watch the game's current stars twice within the first two months of the 2013 PGA TOUR season."
"This is such a unique opportunity for golfers to experience all in one year," said Tiffany Nelson, Senior Director of Business Development, TPC Scottsdale. "To be able to see the PGA TOUR's best golfers at two different events along with the Champions Tour's elite all in one state and then to be able to walk in their shoes with a round at TPC Scottsdale is a bucket list item. Golf enthusiasts will be in heaven, and we are so excited to be a part of it."
Featuring the top-30 points leaders of the season, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship is the culminating event in the Champions Tour's "Road to the Charles Schwab Cup," a year-long competition that awards points to top-10 finishers and ties in 23 official money events. The Charles Schwab Cup Championship awards double points to all 30 players in the field. Players such as Fred Couples, Corey Pavin, Mark Calcavecchia, John Cook and Jay Haas are expected to join defending champion Jay Don Blake and last year's Charles Schwab Cup winner Tom Lehman in the field. Both the winner of the tournament, as well as the year-long Charles Schwab Cup winner, will be crowned at Desert Mountain Club on November 4. Since 1990, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship has generated nearly $5 million for charity.
