Langer's perspective on Champions Tour competition

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) – A 1.7$ million dollar purse is up for grabs in Oro Valley and some of golf’s biggest names have gathered back in Tucson for 5 days of competition.

Round 2 of the Tucson Conquistadores Classic is about to tee off at the Omni Tucson National. Last year professional golf returned to Tucson after the Accenture Match Play Championship left town.

We caught up with one of this week’s favorites Bernhard Langer. Why is he a favorite? He’s won 26 times on the Champions Tour, he’s fresh off a win at the Chubb Classic, and he is your tour money leader. Langer won’t argue that the players can equal the talent on the PGA Tour, but as far as how they stack up competitively, Langer makes a compelling argument. Click on the video link above to get his response.

Here are some notable times and dates for golf fans making the trip to the Omni this week.
