PGA Tour Champions to play alongside celebrities in Orlando

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — PGA Tour Champions professionals will play alongside celebrities in the Diamond Resorts Invitational.

The tour and Diamond Resorts International says as many as 30 senior players will compete in the 54-hole modified stableford event Jan. 13-15 at Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Orlando.

The players will be grouped in threesomes of one senior professional and two celebrities. The seniors will play for $750,000 in the offseason competition, and the celebrities for $500,000.

Tennis player Mardy Fish won the celebrity title last year.

Golf Channel will televise the tournament.
