ACE Group Classic Field Adds Six Hall of Famers

Bernhard Langer tees off at the 2012 ACE Group Classic. Langer, the 2011 champion, will compete at this year’s event.

When The ACE Group Classic begins in Naples next month, six World Golf Hall of Famers  including Tom Kite, Larry Nelson, Curtis Strange, Sandy Lyle and former champions Bernhard Langer and Hale Irwin will highlight the tournament field set to take on the Talon Course at TwinEagles Feb. 12-17.

“The PGA TOUR’s Champions Tour is widely recognized as one of the most fan-friendly organizations out there,” said Tournament Director Lesley Baker. “These Hall of Famers are not only excellent golfers to watch and learn from but great individuals that have each helped grow the game throughout their respective careers; having them all playing in Naples will be a great opportunity for all the families and fans out there.”

Collectively, the Hall of Famers headed to Naples account for 13 major championships, 75 PGA TOUR wins and 90 wins on the Champions Tour.
