Details of Ca Championship and the Ticket Luck value
The CA Championship, known fully as the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, is one of the most prominent pro golf tournaments in the US. Known far and wide as the grand finale of the Champions Tour in the US, it marks the finals of the leading pro golf tour in the world for players of fifty years and above. It is to the Champions Tour what the Tour Championship is to the PGA Tour, a superb competition where the best golfers face each other, head on, to determine the winner, in front of all those who have bought CA Championship tickets to see the event live.
The CA Championship is known fully as the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. It was formerly known as the Senior Tour Championship, in a nod to the Tour Championship of the PGA Tour. Similarly, it also features a small field of thirty, without a half way cut, of the best thirty golfers in the Champions Tour. They take the field against each other in four rounds, unique in the Champions Tour and setting it apart from all over events, which are normally made up of three rounds.
In 2012, the cost of the event came to a total of two and a half million dollars, of which four hundred and forty thousand went to the winner of the CA Championship. Over the course of the many years the tournament has been held, it has seen many host golf courses. For the first three years of the tournament, from 1990 to 1993, it was hosted by the Hyatt Dorado Beach in Dorado, Puerto Rico. From 1994 until 1999, Myrtle Beach in South Carolina became the host city, with the tournament held at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club. In 2000, TPC of Myrtle Beach hosted the tournament, followed by the Gaillardia Golf and Country Club from 2001 to 2002.
Starting from 2003 and going on to 2009, the Sonoma Golf Club in Sonoma, California played host to the championship. TPC Harding Park in San Francisco hosted the championship from 2010 until 2011, followed by a year at the Desert Mountain Club and back to the TPC Harding Park for the scheduled 2013 tournament. This championship has seen as many winners over the course of two odd decades. The current champion is Tom Lehman from the US who won the championship in 2012. Before him, many pro golf players won the tournament, including Jay Don Blake, John Cook twice, Andy Bean, Jim Thorpe thrice, Tom Watson thrice, and Mark McNulty as one of only two non-American winners of the championship.
Other winners of the championship in its older years include Bob Gilder, Gary McCord, Hale Irwin, Gil Morgan, Jay Sigel, Jim Colbert, Raymond Floyd twice, Mike Hill twice and Simon Hobday, the only other non-American to win the championship. It is hardly a surprise that this is a tournament popular with many golf lovers.
