Hall of Famers and Major Champions Highlight SAS Championship Field in 2017

The SAS Championship is where the legends of golf play, and in 2017 the field will feature 15 Major Champions, and seven members of the World Golf Hall of Fame, as part of the most accomplished group in SAS Championship history.

“The accomplishments of the competitors at this year’s SAS Championship are impressive and well-recognized,” Tournament Director Jeff Kleiber said. “They each have had successful playing careers, and have continued their high level of play onto the PGA Tour Champions.
