IntroductionSECTION1 INTRODUCTIONTimothy W. FinchemCommissionerRick GeorgePresidentChampions TourWith 2008 upon us, we mark the 29th season of the Champions Tour. We obviously wouldn’t have achieved this richhistory without the ongoing coverage of the media, and we thank you for that.The Champions Tour staff, players, title sponsors, tournament and media directors enjoy their working relationship withthe media and stand ready to assist you with interview requests and informational support at any time.One of your colleagues described 2007 as “…the delivery year for restocking the legends aisle,” an apt description forone of our best years ever in terms of compelling competition, “rookies” beginning again and entertainment for our sponsorsand fans.It started with World Golf Hall of Fame member Hale Irwin, notching his 45th Champions Tour victory and culminated inSonoma with Jim Thorpe making the most of his 30th spot on the money list to get to Sonoma and winning the season-endingCharles Schwab Cup Championship. Loren Roberts captured the Charles Schwab Cup after a near miss the year before. Inbetween we had an impressive list of first-time and multiple winners, remarkable rookies and notable performances thatfurther elevated the profile of the Champions Tour.In 2007 we also celebrated the induction of Curtis Strange and Hubert Green into the World Golf Hall of Fame. There arenow 14 members of the Hall actively competing on the Champions Tour.As the 2008 season arrives, we fully expect the excitement and drama to continue. This year, we welcome majorchampionship winners Sandy Lyle (February), Ian Woosnam (March), Hal Sutton (April) and Larry Mize (September), along withJoey Sindelar (March). It will also be the first full season for John Cook, Jeff Sluman, Phil Blackmar, Fulton Allem, Mark Wiebeand Bernhard Langer.New to the Tour for 2008 is The Cap Cana, a first-year event set for early April in the Domincan Republic. We have alsogone back to our historic roots at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, the event that spawned the creation of the ChampionsTour. The Legends Division returns to a 54-hole, two-man, better-ball competition contested as an official-money event andcounted as an official victory for each team member.Similar to last season we have another impressive lineup of venues for our five major championships. Oak Hill CountryClub (Rochester, NY) will host the Senior PGA Championship, Royal Troon (Scotland) will be the site of the Senior British Open,The Broadmoor Resort’s East Course (Colorado Springs) will host the U.S. Senior Open and the JELD-WEN Tradition andConstellation Energy Senior Players Championship will again be held at Crosswater Club (Sunriver, OR) and the historicBaltimore Country Club, respectively.These appealing venues and our other courses will showcase well with our television partners. We have 23 events airingon GOLF CHANNEL. The other tournaments, including four of the five majors, will be telecast on ABC, CBS and NBC.Total prize money continues to increase, as well. The 29 events will offer $55.5 million in prize money in 2008, with thehighest-average-per-tournament purse ever of $1.91 million.Those who follow the Champions Tour are undoubtedly aware that Charles Schwab & Co. is extending its comprehensivemarketing partnership as the “Official Investment Firm of the PGA TOUR and the Champions Tour” and umbrella sponsorshipof the Champions Tour’s Charles Schwab Cup program. Charles Schwab is an outstanding partner, and players, tournamentsand fans have benefited greatly from our relationship with Schwab over the past 10 years. We’re confident the continuation ofthis partnership will provide significant value to both Charles Schwab and the Champions Tour for many years to come.Another area of Champions Tour exposure has more tangible and important benefits. Our players are helping people whohave disadvantages in life realize their dreams. Our players give back in each of the communities we serve, and thanks to theirefforts and those of players on the PGA TOUR and Nationwide Tour we are well on our way in reaching our goal of a secondbillion dollars in charitable donations in the next five to seven years. Our appreciation and congratulations go out to thetournaments, players, sponsors and thousands of volunteers who are helping to make this goal reality.With a terrific core of players delighting fans each week with great play at outstanding golf courses, the Champions Tourdefinitely holds a unique place in the sports world. This promises to be another compelling season, and we hope you enjoywatching and reporting as the drama unfolds. Thank you again for your support of the Champions Tour. We look forward toseeing you on Tour this season.Sincerely,Timothy W.

The dean of the ChampionsTour, World Golf Hall of Fame memberHale Irwin, started his season bynotching his 45th Champions Tourvictory. The season culminated with thevenerable Jim Thorpe making the mostof his 30th spot on the money list to getinto and later win the season-endingCharles Schwab Cup Championship. Inbetween there was an impressive list offirst time and multiple winners,remarkable rookies and notableperformances.It was also a season of LorenRoberts’ redemption after a near miss in2007 Charles Schwab Cup champion Loren Roberts2006.The 2006 Charles Schwab Cup came down to the final putt of the season,with Jay Haas being the beneficiary of an uncharacteristic 4 1/2-foot missedputt by Roberts, known as the “Boss of the Moss,” on the 72nd hole of theCharles Schwab Cup Championship. Haas’ 20-point victory margin was thenarrowest in the six-year history of the Charles Schwab Cup competition.This past season Roberts’ ever reliable putter didn’t desert him nor did hisconsistency throughout 2007.Before the battle even began, though, there was much anticipation at theat the start of the season for the scheduled debuts of rookies Mark O’Meara,Nick Price, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer and John Cook. And thecompetition was as keen as ever, with 21 different winners in 29 events. In theend, however, it was the two most talked-about players from 2006 who made allthe headlines again in 2007.Haas dominated the start of the season, earning four wins from March toJune. He led the Charles Schwab Cup points race for 19 of 28 weeks overall, justas Roberts led in 2006 for 19 of 27 weeks. With Roberts’ eventual return to thetop by the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, it triggered feelings of déjà vu.Roberts worked his way to the top of the standings with three weeks leftin the season, earning double points for his win at the season’s final major—theConstellation Energy Senior Players Championship. That victory allowed him totake a 165-point lead as players headed to Sonoma.As the Charles Schwab Cup Championship began, only four players had anopportunity to claim the 2007 Charles Schwab Cup based on the points available(880) to the winner of the of the season’s finale. Besides Roberts and Haas, TomWatson and Brad Bryant were still mathematically eligible to win the trophy andits $1-million annuity. But the latter two needed to win to claim the Cup.Going into Sunday’s final round in Sonoma, Bryant appeared to have thebest shot. He was tied for second after three rounds and appeared poised to win.But he faltered, firing off four bogeys, one double bogey and a handful of birdiesto shoot a disappointing 1-over 73 and fall from a tie for second into a tie for10th place. Haas went the wrong direction as well, needing 73 strokes to getthrough his final round, which dropped him into a tie for 20th for the tournamentWatson was not a factor either, tying for 20th.Roberts started the final round tied for 18th and eventually improved to atie for 13th, nine strokes back of tournament champion Jim Thorpe.Despite not finishing in the top 10 (only players 10th or better earn pointseach week), Roberts had enough of a cushion to retain his lead in the race andcapture the trophy and earn a bit of redemption in the process.“For me to get up on the last hole (in 2006) and have a chance to do it andhave probably the best club in my bag fail me, obviously that’s something that Idealt with in the off-season and part of this year,” Roberts said. “It was verysatisfying to be able to come down and finish it off this year.”Roberts prevailed, thanks to his consistency. He not only won theConstellation Energy Senior Players Championship, but he also earned a win atThe Boeing Championship at Sandestin and led the Tour in Scoring Average,Putting Average and Scrambling. Remarkably he was among the top-fivefinishers 13 times in 23 tournament appearances. That means 56 percent of thetime he was one of the five best players for the week.“That’s what it all boils down to, playing for a million dollars on one day.That is what is so exciting about the Schwab Cup is that it’s such a year-longthing and invariably it comes down to this last week and it comes down to thelast day,” Roberts said.Roberts is the fifth different player and the seventh overall to hoist theCharles Schwab Cup, after Allen Doyle (2001), Hale Irwin (2002, 2004), TomWatson (2003, 2005) and Haas (2006).With players like O’Meara, Langer, Price and Cook making their presencefelt in 2007, plus Joey Sindelar, Hal Sutton, Tom Lehman, Fred Couples andCorey Pavin, to name a few, turning 50 this season and next season, the 52-yearoldRoberts is happy to see his name engraved on the trophy before theonslaught of younger talent arrives.“The competition is going to be looking tougher and tougher as theChampions Tour moves on with a lot of new guys that are coming on. I’m glad tobe able to get one now instead of having to wait a few more years,” he said.About Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.The Charles Schwab Corporation (Nasdaq: SCHW) is a leading provider offinancial services, with more than 300 offices and 6.9 million client brokerageaccounts, 1.2 million corporate retirement plan participants, 200,000 bankingaccounts and $1.4 trillion in client assets.
