Following the postponement of Friday’s opening round at the 40th Annual Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf due to heavy rains, PGA TOUR Champions announced a pair of schedule adjustments for Saturday’s competition.
The Tour announced that the tournament will now be 36-holes only with both rounds contested at the par-3 Top of the Rock course. There will be no play at the Buffalo Ridge Golf Course due to saturated course conditions. In addition, competition in the Legends Division will be nine holes only instead of the scheduled 36 holes, with the winning team to be crowned in a trophy presentation following play on Saturday.
Play will get underway on Saturday starting with the first wave of competitors in the Champions Division (10 foursomes) from 8:00-9:39 a.m. Five foursomes in the Legends Division will kick off at noon followed by the remaining Champions Division players from 1:20-2:48. The foursome of Jack Nicklaus/Gary Player and Lee Trevino/Mike Hill, competing in the Legends Division, will follow at 3 p.m.
There will be no change to Sunday’s plans with only the 38 teams in the Champions Division competing along with a Skins Shootout featuring Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino and five-time Grammy Award nominee Kid Rock. A trophy presentation for the Champions Division will take place at 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Golf Channel will feature live tournament coverage from 4-6 p.m. CST on both Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday is Family Fun Day at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf where kids 17 and under get in free with a paid adult. Special activities include a special appearance by Dude Perfect on the Top of the Rock Arnold Palmer Practice Range at 3:00 p.m. Kids can meet the trick-shot aficionados and win gifts and great prizes.
