In one of the most important tournaments on the Legends Tour International Schedule, Bjorn joins an already outstanding lineup that includes Major Champions and other Ryder Cup Captains.
“I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship, and I’m excited to play in it for the first time near a place that means a lot to me,” he said.
“Most people are aware of my passion for Liverpool, and despite the fact that I am not a native, I am hoping that the fans at Formby Golf Club will make me feel at ease.”
“I am grateful to Ryan Howsam and his Staysure team for making this event such a highlight on the calendar, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone later this month.”
New Zealander and 2005 U.S. Open Champion Michael Campbell, 1991 Masters Tournament winner and 2006 Ryder Cup captain Woosnam, 2014 Ryder Cup winning captain Paul McGinley, and defending champion Phillip Price will join Bjorn and Lawrie on the English links.
