McNulty and Eger teamed for a final-round 11-under 61 and a 27-under 189 total. That got them into a playoff against Scott Hoch and Kenny Perry, which ended when McNulty got up-and-down for par on the second extra hole. It was a key victory for McNulty and Eger, who were back after missing much of the 2010 season with injuries and subsequent surgery.
Seventy-one teams will compete in three divisions at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. Seven of the 16 World Golf of Fame members will play in the Legends Division. They are Hubert Green, Hale Irwin, Lanny Wadkins, Larry Nelson, Bernhard Langer and Tom Kite.
Competition in the Demaret Division -- for Grand Champions ages 70 and above -- is Monday and Tuesday. Mark James and Des Smyth will defend their title in the 36-hole Raphael Division Friday and Saturday.
Three players will make their first appearances in the Legends. The newcomers are Steve Pate, who will team with U.S. Senior Open champion Olin Browne; John Huston, with partner Jim Gallagher, Jr., and Brad Faxon, with Jeff Sluman. Faxon won the Insperity Championship in Houston in his rookie season last year.
