Montreal Champions Tour stop adds Calcavecchia, Pavin to seniors roster Add to ...

Mark Calcavecchia and Corey Pavin have confirmed they will play in this year's US$1.8 million Montreal Championship, the only Canadian stop on the Champions Tour.

The tournament set for June 22-24 at Richelieu Valley had already announced that the first two winners of the event, Larry Mize and John Cook, as well as 1992 Masters champion Fred Couples would be in the field of golfers 50 and over.

Tournament director David Skitt said he hopes the third edition of the event would have “the strongest field in the short history of the tournament.”

Calcavecchia counts the 1989 British Open and the 2005 Canadian Open among the highlights of his PGA Tour career. In the second round of the 2009 Canadian Open, he set a tour record with nine consecutive birdies at Glen Abbey.

He finished tied for 16th at the inaugural Montreal Championship at Fontainebleau in 2010.

Pavin, the U.S. Ryder Cup team captain in 2010, won the 1995 U.S. Open and was the PGA Tour money leader in 1991. He finished fourth at the Montreal Championship last year.

He won his first Champions Tour title this year at the Alliantz Championship.
