Kenny Perry Commits to Play In Greater Gwinnett Championship
Kenny Perry, who won the 2013 Charles Schwab Cup, has committed to play in the 2nd annual Greater Gwinnett Championship Presented by Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating, an Official Event on the PGA TOUR’s Champions Tour. The tournament will be played April 14-20, 2014 at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, GA. In addition to Perry, 80 other legends of golf will be competing for a total purse of $1.8 million and a first place check of $270,000 including the defending champion, Bernhard Langer, Mark O’Meara, Tom Kite and Miguel Angel Jimenez who played extremely well this past weekend at Doral.
Perry enjoyed a career year in 2013 on the Champions Tour, winning the Charles Schwab Cup season-long-points race as well as player-of-the-year honors. In the four Champions Tour majors that he played in, he won both the U.S. Senior Open and the Senior Players Championship and finished runner-up in the Senior PGA Championship. In 20 events last year he recorded 12 top 10s as well as 18 top 25s and finished second in earnings with $2,241,188. Prior to turning 50, he enjoyed a very productive career on the PGA TOUR, winning 14 times including two Memorial Tournaments and a pair of Colonial Invitationals. Eleven of the titles were earned after the age of 40 and five when he reached 45. In 2008 and 2009, when he was 48 and 49 respectfully, he missed only two cuts in 50 PGA TOUR starts and recorded nearly $10 million in earnings. Now, at 53, he remains one of the longest and most accurate drivers in the sport. Perry competed on four Presidents and two Ryder Cup teams with five winning team efforts and one tie.
