Editor's note: Vartan Kupelian is the Champions Tour Insider and a PGATOUR.COM Contributor. Each week, Kupelian will size up the field and provide his top five players going into the tournament, based on factors such as the player's strengths, the course setup, recent performances, etc.
This week's AT&T Championship is the final full-field event on the 2010 Champions Tour schedule.
Phil Blackmar will defend the title he won last year by one stroke over a trio of golfers: Jay Haas, Tom Kite and Andy Bean. Blackmar fired a final round 7-under 64 at Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio.
The top 30 golfers on the money list after the AT&T Championship will qualify for next week's season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship at Harding Park. Blackmar made an enormous leap last year, moving up 27 spots in the Charles Schwab Cup points list to claim the last spot in the field for the finale.
Designed by A.W. Tillinghast in the golden era of golf course architecture in the 1920s, Oak Hills is the kind of course many of the Champions Tour players grew up playing, so the positive feelings dominate.
