LIBERTY MUTUAL INSURANCE


April 26-28


LEGENDS OF GOLF


THE LIBERTY MUTUAL INSURANCE LEGENDS OF GOLF holds a special spot on the Champions Tour since it is the tournament that got the whole thing started. Back in 1978, Sam Snead and Gardner Dickinson teamed to win the


inaugural


event, which was played at the Onion Creek Country Club in Austin, TX. The overall play was impressive and so were the television ratings. The following year Julius Boros and Roberto De Vicenzo beat Tommy Bolt and Art Wall in a memorable playoff. The interest in senior golf was so great that in 1980, the Senior Tour was founded.


Last year Michael Allen and David Frost proved they are very good partners as they fired a final-round, better-ball 62 to edge former Ohio State teammates John Cook and Joey Sindelar by one stroke.


The victory was particularly sweet for Allen, who won the 2009 Senior PGA Championship and then was winless in his next 40 stops. But he finally won at TPC Tampa Bay one week prior to the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf. His two wins put him atop both the Champions Tour money list and the Charles Schwab Cup points race.


“It took so long to win the second one,” Allen said. “Then, I had the breakthrough last week. It was great having David on my side. I’ve never won two real tournaments in a row in my life. Now, I know my kids will jump all over me and tell me how great I am.”

FROST’S EAGLE ON 14 WAS CRUCIAL With Allen in the trees off the tee, Frost chipped in for an eagle that gave the team their margin of victory.


“I was a little nervous over that chip,” Frost said. “The ball was lying downhill, but it came out just right and rolled down, into the hole. We didn’t make a bogey all week, and we got lucky when we needed to.” ■

During his long and remarkable competitive career, Sam Snead joined Robert Trent Jones on some golf course design. When his playing career finally ended, he began to get more involved in design work. He and Gene Sarazen collaborated on The Slammer & Squire Course at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, FL, which is a former site of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf. When this tournament moved to Savannah


in 2003, it was to another Snead collaboration, this time with Bob Cupp. The opening nine plays out along the Black River, while the inward nine plays through marshes and offers scenic views of Savannah from many of the holes.
