Legends of Golf event will not return in 2014
Tuesday, November 12, 2013
The Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf will not be returning for a 12th year in 2014.
Champions Tour president Mike Stevens announced Monday that a new title sponsor could not be found for the Savannah, Ga., tournament. Liberty Mutual Insurance notified the Tour earlier this year that it would not continue its sponsorship of the event.
"Upon receiving notification from Liberty Mutual Insurance earlier this year of its decision not to continue title sponsorship of the Legends of Golf event after 2013, the Tour initiated a search for a new title sponsor. Unfortunately, the efforts to this point have not been fruitful,” Stevens said.
“The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa, along with the Savannah community, have been a wonderful host of this event over the past 11 years. We are extremely grateful for the tournament's many dedicated volunteers and sponsors who have helped us raise over $1.9 million for local charities through the years. Although we will not be returning to Savannah in 2014, our hope is that the Champions Tour will return to Savannah in the future.”
Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman teamed up to win the event in 2013 at the Club at Savannah Harbor.
