The Enquirer and wire reports

The Kroger Classic, a regular stop on the Champions Tour, is scheduled for Sept. 1-7 at the Tournament Players Club at River's Bend.

The 54-hole tournament will be broadcast by the Golf Channel, as will 16 other Champions Tour events.

The Champions Tour for the over-50 set, formerly called the Senior PGA Tour, will have 31 official tournaments worth more than $52 million in prize money.

The Champions became the first golf circuit with five major championships by adding the Senior British Open to its 2003 schedule.

The other Champions majors are the U.S. Senior Open, Senior PGA Championship, The Players Championship and the Tradition.
