SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – San Francisco is hosting the season-ending tournament for the Champions Tour, with golfers teeing off today at the start of the four-day Charles Schwab Cup Championship at TPC Harding Park.
Among those in the 30-man field, which consists of golfers age 50 and older, are Kenny Perry, Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples, Mark O’Meara and Tom Lehman.
Along with the tournament trophy and a $440,000 first-place prize, the golfers are also vying for a $1 million bonus in the season-long Charles Schwab Cup points race. Perry will clinch the bonus if he finishes at least fifth at Harding Park.
One-day tickets for the event cost $20, while tickets for the whole week are $50. Youths and military veterans get in for free, organizers said.
General parking for the event is at the Stonestown Galleria Mall and costs $10. Fans will be taken by complimentary shuttles to the course.
Bike racks will be provided at the main entrance to the course, at Sunset Circle off of Lake Merced Boulevard.
