Calcavecchia from Laurel, Nebraska, is a 13-time winner on the PGA TOUR and a four-time winner on the Champions Tour, including this year’s Boca Raton Championship. Calcavecchia captured the 1989 Open Championship at Royal Troon defeating Greg Norman and Wayne Grady in a playoff.

DiMarco is in his rookie season on the PGA TOUR Champions. The Orlando, Florida, native has three PGA TOUR victories on his resume and one international victory at the 2006 Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. DiMarco may best be remembered for his runner-up finish to Tiger Woods at the 2005 Masters. DiMarco was a member of the 2003 and 2005 President’s Cup team, as well as a member of the 2004 and 2006 Ryder Cup Team.
