He has played in two U.S. Opens and seven PGA Championships and next month he will debut on the Champions Tour at the Principal Charity Classic in West Des Moines. Ken Schall has been awarded a sponsor’s exemption to play in the tournament on a course he is very familiar with.
Schall is Director of Golf at the Glen Oaks Country Club. He says to play the club is really exciting, as he will play in front of a lot of friends and family.
Schall turned 50 earlier this month and thought he might get a chance to play in the tournament. He says he was hopeful he would get an exemption and is grateful to the sponsors for getting one.
Now that he is in the field Schall wants to make a good showing, but he says it has been a few years since he has played against a field of this caliber. Schall says he will work hard in the next few weeks to get his game back to where it he wants it to be.
Schall is a seven-time Iowa PGA player of the year. The Principal Charity Classic is May 26th through the 31st.
