New Senior PGA Tour event for Oahu

The Senior PGA Tour is returning to Oahu this fall for the first since in nearly a decade with the debut of the Turtle Bay Championship.

The $1.5 million tournament scheduled for Oct. 1-7 will replace Maui's EMC Kaanapali Classic. It will be played at The Links at Kuilima at the Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's North Shore.

``Being able to continue a full-field senior tour event in Hawaii is extremely gratifying,'' PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said Monday. ``Our players have always enjoyed competing in Hawaii and this event falls during a particularly important time of year for the players.''

The last Senior PGA Tour on Oahu was the Ko Olina Senior Classic in 1992 won by Chi Chi Rodriguez. The Turtle Bay Resort hosted the inaugural Senior Skins Game in 1988.
