The Legends Tour Golf Tournament is taking place this year at our very own Formby Golf Club & Formby Ladies Golf Club.
Golf fans will be given the opportunity to watch some of the game’s most iconic names at the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship at Formby Golf Club. Regularly ranked in the top links courses in the country and the world, Formby has hosted a selection of fantastic tournaments. These notably include the Curtis Cup, Open qualifying and the course was the venue for José María Olazábal’s triumph over Colin Montgomerie in 1984 to win the Amateur Championship.
Formby Golf Club is one of the world’s great links courses. Running through mature sand dunes and pinewoods, the combination of well protected greens, undulating fairways and challenging tee shots signifies a course of magnificent contrasts.
They have combined the most historic tournament on the Legends Tour, a world-class golf course and some of the games greatest players, to bring you an experience like no other.
Together with The Senior Open Presented by Rolex, the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship is one of the most sought after titles on the Legends Tour. Won in 2019 by Phillip Price, the 2021 edition will put the Tour’s best against the might of Formby Golf Club.
The Legends Tour’s flagship event will take place on England’s golf coast from July 29 – August 1.
Phillip Price will defend the title he won in 2019 when he triumphed at London Golf Club on his way to winning the John Jacobs Trophy for topping the Order of Merit at the end of the year.
Ryder Cup Captains Paul McGinley and Ian Woosnam will tee it up at the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship at Formby Golf Club, England, from July 29-August 1.
McGinley and Woosnam join Staysure PGA Seniors Championship field
The duo, who are both Legends Tour Ambassadors and each led Team Europe to memorable victories in the biennial contest, will take part in the Legends Tour’s flagship event when it takes place on the stunning links of Formby Golf Club.
Woosnam capped off a stunning Ryder Cup career, which included eight appearances and four victories as a player, by captaining Team Europe to a dominant 18.5 – 9.5 triumph at the K Club in 2006.
The 1991 Masters Champion, who has 52 professional wins to his name in a glittering 45-year career to date, will join a strong field at Formby Golf Club in July.
“This tournament is always one of the highlights of the year and I am really looking forward to playing in the Tour’s flagship event once again,” he said.
“I have never played at Formby but it is in a part of the world which is famous for links golf, so I am sure it will provide a real test for all of us. Hopefully we are treated to some good weather and the spectators can come out and enjoy an exciting week of golf.”
Irishman McGinley, who played under Woosnam in 2006, has a 100 percent record in the Ryder Cup with three wins as a player before leading Team Europe to victory at Gleneagles in 2014 where they defeated Team USA 16.5 – 11.5.
The four-time European Tour winner finished in a tie for ninth place in the last edition of the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship in 2019 and he is looking forward to playing in front of spectators on Merseyside.
“I’m really excited to play in the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship again, it’s always such an enjoyable week,” McGinley said.
“It’s the flagship event on the Legends Tour and I know Ryan and his team put so much effort into making it a success, so I’m thrilled to be going up to Formby.
“To be able to play in front of fans again is brilliant. They’re so passionate about their golf in that part of the country and I just know the atmosphere will be electric all week, which really does make a difference to us players.”
