The Galleri Classic: Storylines, how to watch and more

1 Min Read



    Written by Staff @PGATOUR

    PGA TOUR Champions closes out the month of March with the second playing of The Galleri Classic at historic Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California.

    Defending champion David Toms will tee it up with a loaded field that includes Charles Schwab Cup points leader Steven Alker.

    Six members of the World Golf Hall of Fame will join them, including Fred Couples and Ernie Els. Other notables include reigning Charles Schwab Cup winner Steve Stricker, Jerry Kelly and both captains of the 2024 Presidents Cup, Jim Furyk (USA) and Mike Weir (International).

    Toms captured the inaugural event last year, going wire-to-wire to claim his second victory of the 2023 PGA TOUR Champions season. It wasn't all plain sailing for Toms as Retief Goosen birdied nine of his first 12 holes in the final round to take a three-shot lead. But Toms took back control playing the final 10 holes in 6-under, while the South African played the final six holes in 2-over.

    The Dinah Shore Tournament Course at Mission Hills will once again host. From 1988 to 2022, the course was home to The Chevron Championship one of the LPGA's five majors.

    So far, the 2024 season has featured five different winners, each from a different country: Steven Alker (New Zealand), Stephen Ames (Canada), Ricardo Gonzalez (Argentina), Joe Durant (United States) and Padraig Harrington (Ireland). Can the field of international contenders continue this trend?
