Two more big names have committed to play in the Champions Tour Allianz Championship next week in West Des Moines. Ben Crenshaw and Fuzzy Zoeller both committed to take part. Tournament director Jeff Starr who says not only are both popular with the fans but they also should be competitive.
Starr says Zoeller’s been playing well and Crenshaw showed he could still compete at the Masters. It will be Zoeller’s fourth straight appearance at the Allianz and the first for Crenshaw since he tied for tenth in 2003.
Fourteen of the top 20 money winners on the Champions Tour are already in the field and Starr is hoping for some late additions like Craig Stadler and Jay Haas. Starr says the golfers have until Friday to make a decision as to whether or not they’ll play. He says they like to see how they’re feeling before deciding to play.
The Allianz runs from May 29th through June 4th at the Glen Oaks Country Club.
