Champions Tour golfers and South Florida residents Bernhard Langer, Russ Cochran, Olin Browne and Mark Calcavecchia were among the participants in the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
The tournament, which took place in Scottsdale, Ariz., at the Desert Mountain Club’s Cochise Golf Course, consisted of a field of the Tour’s top-30 money leaders, who each competed for four days in The Grand Canyon State.

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities’ Realtors follow both the Champions Tour and the PGA Tour, as many of the players live in the neighborhoods the agents sell. One of the reasons Waterfront Properties’ clients move to the northern Palm Beach County area is because of its excellent and abundant golf courses, as well as golf-course homes, and its growing celebrity-sports list. The Palm Beach Post has coined the county the new world golf capital.
