The first full-field event of the season gets underway this week at the Chubb Classic in Naples, Florida and the defending champion, Miguel Angel Jimenez, leads the Charles Schwab Cup standings after two events. Jimenez won the season opener at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai and finished T24 at the Morocco Champions.
The Chubb Classic is marking its 33rd year on PGA TOUR Champions, the fifth oldest tournament on Tour and Chubb Limited stands as the longest title sponsor at 23 years.
Jimenez won last year in a playoff over Bernhard Langer and Olin Browne at The Classics at Lely Resort.
Past champions of the Chubb Classic include: Fred Couples (2017, 2010), Bernhard Langer (2016, 2013, 2011) and Hale Irwin (2002, 1997). Gary Player won the first playing of the event in 1988.
There are some notables making their PGA TOUR Champions debuts including Tim "Lumpy" Herron, who turned 50 on February 6th, along with Robert Karlsson and Thongchai Jaidee, who both made it through Qualifying Tournament. Karlsson is an 11-time winner on the European Tour while Jaidee is a 13-time winner on the Asian Tour.
