RIDGEDALE, Mo. – The Bass Pro Legends of Golf Big Cedar Lodge “Legends and Champions Tour” officially kicks off tomorrow today.
Through the weekend, some of the top names in the golf world will be found teeing off at either the Top of the Rock or Buffalo Ridge Golf Courses.
Returning as partners for year three of the legends tournament are World Golf Hall of Famers Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. During a media interview Thursday morning Nicklaus says he really enjoys being back for the tournament and getting the chance to play with his friend Gary Player:
Player adds to Nicklaus’ statement by sharing how much he values his friendship with Nicklaus:
Nicklaus and Player finished 9-under-par in 2015, just behind the 2015 legends tournament winners Bruce Fleisher and Larry Nelson who took the tournament with a 12-under-par.
