For the 10th year in a row, Constellation will sponsor the annual SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, one of only five major championships on the PGA TOUR Champions. With committed players including Bernhard Langer, John Daly, Tom Watson and three other former Masters winners, this event is sure to be an exciting matchup of some of golf’s finest players.
