Location: Broken Sound Club, Boca Raton, Florida
The Champions Tour returns to Boca Raton, Florida and the Broken Sound Club for this week’s Boca Raton Championship. Previously known as the Allianz Championship, this will be the first year the tournament will be played under a different name after the controversial German insurance company pulled its sponsorship. Despite the change, the field for this year’s event will once again be very strong including 2017 Champions Player of the Year Bernhard Langer, John Daly and Fred Couples among the notable entries. Langer enters the weekend as the favorite. Let’s take a closer look at this event and determine who is the best bet to win it all.
The tournament lost its longtime title sponsor, Allianz, last year. Martin County resident Hollis Cavner, the owner of Pro Links Sports, which runs the event, put together a deal that included support from the tour, Sallyport and various entities of the city of Boca Raton and Palm Beach County to keep the tournament going.
Cavner is confident he can find another company to replace Allianz. But he knows a tournament without a title sponsor doesn’t remain a tournament for long.
Cavner isn’t the only Martin County resident who has skin in this game. Nine players with Martin County ties – Olin Browne, Mark Calcavecchia, Russ Cochran, Brad Faxon, Fred Funk, Mike Goodes, Jesper Parnevik, Gene Sauers and Jeff Sluman – are in the 78-player field.
Scott McCarron is another notable name that will compete in this year’s Boca Raton Championship as he attempts to successfully defend his title after winning here last year. McCarron sank a six-foot eagle putt on the final hole to win this tournament by one shot in 2017. While he isn’t listed as the odds-on favorite to win this event, McCarron is among the betting favorites and should be in the mix once again this weekend.
