The Ally Challenge 2020
Modifications have been made to the 2020 PGA Champions Tour following the outbreak of coronavirus. However, it appears as though the Ally Challenge will go ahead as planned on the 31st of July and into early August. The tournament is presented by McLaren and will be contested at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc Township, Michigan.
In addition to the main event which takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there is a pro-am on Wednesday and Thursday. Some of the proceeds from the tournament go to local charities plus the Community Foundation of Greater Flint and Junior Achievement of South-eastern Michigan.
The Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club previously hosted the Buick Open until 2009, at which point the venue was searching for a new tournament. That is why the Ally Challenge came to fruition and the first tournament took place in 2018, with Englishman Paul Broadhurst as the winner. Last year, American Jerry Kelly came out on top, winning the event with a score of -16, two strokes clear of his nearest challenger.
In terms of the potential winner of the Ally Challenge 2020, it is not easy to pick out a name considering the recent events has stopped professional golf around the world. However, one man who has what it takes to win at this venue is Fred Couples. The 1992 Masters champion tasted success at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club back in 1994 as the American won the Buick Open of that year. Yes, it was close to being 30 years ago but when a golfer arrives at a venue where they have previously won a PGA Tour event, it generates a special feeling.
Couples will be able to draw on his success at the 1994 Buick Open but he has also been performing well on the PGA Champions Tour. Prior to the suspension of the tour, Couples was leading the way in terms of top 10 finishes having finished inside the top 10 in each of the four tournaments he played. Couples finished T2 in the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai following a playoff and T2 in the Hoag Classic, which was the final tournament to be played before the suspension of the tour.
One man who has tasted plenty of success on the PGA Champions Tour recently is Miguel Angel Jiménez. The Spaniard has won two events this season, the Mitsubishi Electric Championship and the Chubb Classic. He clearly knows what it takes to get the job done and will be looking to complete a hat trick of victories at the Ally Challenge 2020.
Another name to look out for in the Ally Challenge 2020 is Bernhard Langer. The winner of the Cologuard Classic, the German currently leads the way in the Charles Schwab Cup money list and continues to impress on the golf course. He has four top 10 finishes to his name from five events this season, which is a fantastic record. It is difficult to discuss the potential winners of any event on the PGA Champions Tour and not mention the name Langer.
Other players to look out for include Kevin Sutherland, Woody Austin, Stephen Leaney, Brett Quigley, Ernie Els and Scott Parel.
