More big names are signing up for the Principal Charity Classic later this month in West Des Moines. Among the latest to committee are 1998 PGA champ Jeff Sluman and Nick Price, who won the PGA in 1992 and the British Open in 1994.
Tournament director Jamie Alt says they have 26 of the current top 30 money winners from the Champions Tour. He says the Principal Charity Classic is one of the most popular events on the Champions Tour. Alt says the players say they love Des Moines for the course and the community support of the tournament. He says thousands come out and wrap around the 18th green, while other tournaments have only 20 or 30 people out.
Alt says Mark O’Mera and Fred Funk are two of the notable names just added to the list. The Principal Charity Classic is May 26th through the 31st at the Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines.
