2013:

NOTES: The Champions Tour travels to Canada this week for the Shaw Charity Classic in Calgary, Alberta. Seven of the top-10 players on the money list are in the field, including money leader Bernhard Langer.

Langer leads Colin Montgomerie by more than $800,000 for the top spot. Langer can increase his lead this week, as Montgomerie is not teeing it up. Langer has five victories this season and is the only player with more than two wins. He finished tied for 15th last week at the Boeing Classic, which broke a string of five straight top-10 finishes.

This is the 18th official Champions Tour event to be staged in Canada, and fourth in Calgary. Two Canadian golfers are in the field - Jim Rutledge and Rod Spittle.

Last year, Rocco Mediate carded rounds of 63-64-64 and cruised to a 7-stroke win over Tom Byrum. Mediate finished at 22-under-par 191 for his second Champions Tour win of 2013. His total of 191 matched the lowest 54-hole score in Champions Tour history. Mediate became the first rookie with multiple wins in a season since Fred Couples in 2010.

The Champions Tour remains in Canada next week for the Quebec Championship, where Esteban Toledo is the defending champion.
