Nineteen Major Winners Highlight ACE Group Classic Field

NAPLES, FL ( FEB 1, 2013)  –  Nineteen major winners have committed to The ACE Group Classic being held at TwinEagles Feb 12-17. The official Champions Tour event returns to Naples for the 26th year.

“Winning a major once, let alone multiple times like eight of these players have, are epic milestones of their careers but they’re also incredible moments we remember as fans,” said Tournament Director Lesley Baker.  “I think all of our spectators will appreciate and enjoy the competitiveness these players still have and the great setting provided at TwinEagles.”

Ben Crenshaw, Fuzzy Zoeller, Bernhard Langer, Larry Nelson, Hale Irwin, Curtis Strange, Mark O’Meara and Sandy Lyle are all multiple major winners while Tom Lehman, Mark Calcavecchia, Jeff Sluman, Larry Mize, Tom Kite, Craig Stadler, Bob Tway, Hal Sutton, Steve Elkington, Mark Brooks and Scott Simpson each have one major victory to their credit.

Collectively, the winners have claimed 29 trophies including nine Masters titles, eight U.S. Opens, seven PGA Championships and four British Opens.
