Regions re-ups with Champions Tour in Birmingham

The Champions Tour will continue to play its season-opening major championship in Birmingham, Ala., through 2018.

Regions Financial Corp. has extended title-sponsorship of the Regions Tradition, the Champions Tour announced Tuesday.

This year’s $2.2 million event will be played May 15-18 at Shoal Creek, with David Frost as the defending champion. After next year’s Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek, the tournament will move to nearby Greystone Golf & Country Club for 2016-18.

The tournament began in 1989 as The Tradition at Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, Ariz., before moving to Oregon in 2003 as the Jeld-Wen Tradition. It moved to Alabama in 2011.
