Using the just released 2016 Champions Tour set I'll be playing the 2016 Senior Challenge Cup, a series of Five 72 hole stroke play events , utilizing the courses in the Champions Tour set that were contested over 4 Rounds.

The top 6 Golfers on the Schwab Cup points list will be competing. Why the top 6 Golfers ? I wanted to include Miguel Angel Jimenez and he's #6 on the points list ! Jimenez only played 13 events on the Champions Tour in 2016 but still finished #4 on the Money List and #6 on the Points List. He'll be giving Langer a run for his money in the years to come if/when he stops competing on both the regular and Champions tours.

Competing Golfers

Bernhard Langer
Colin Montgomerie
Paul Goydos
Scott McCarron
Joe Durant
Miguel Angel Jimenez

With the cards that these guys have in the 2016 set shooting Par will get you absolutely nowhere.

Points will be awarded as follows. Low 72 hole total will receive 6 points, graduating down to the high 72 hole total receiving 1 point. Maximum points available over the 5 events is 30 (6x5).

Course 1 - Regions Tradition (72)

Round 1

Durant scorches the course for a 64, courtesy of a BD roll on the course card. Jimenez is right on his heels with a 65. Goydos is 3 shots off the pace with a 67, followed by Montgomerie and McCarron, each with 69. Bringing up the rear in the 1st Round is Langer with a 2 under par 70.

Round 2

Durant is still on fire in Round 2 as he shoots 65. Langer matches him with a 65 of his own. McCarron and Jimenez are next at 68, followed by Montgomerie and Goydos at 69.

Course 1 - Regions Tradition (72)

Round 3

A very different scoring day from the first 2 Rounds. Everyone was under Par but only Durant and McCarron broke 70. McCarron had the low score of the day with a 67, followed by Durant with a 69. Langer, Montgomerie, Goydos, and Jimenez all recorded a 71. Durant increased his lead over 2nd place, now occupied by McCarron and Jimenez, to 6 strokes.

Round 4

The Final Round was a bit tougher on scoring than Round 3. All of the competitors broke Par, but only Langer, with a 69, broke 70. Durant finished with a 71 to take the 6 points, ending with a 269 (-19). Langer's 69 enabled him to join a crowded 2nd Place with McCarron and Jimenez as they each claimed 5 points for their score of 275 (-13). Goydos at 278 (-10) and Montgomerie at 279 (-9) brought up the rear.

Course 2 - Senior PGA Championship (72)

Round 1

The pin positions were definitely to everyone's liking as the high score of the day was only 67. Montgomerie led the way with a 64 (-8), helped by a great result on a Putting Skill Check. McCarron was next with a 65 (-7), followed by Langer and Goydos at 66 (-6), with Durant and Jimenez at the bottom as each "only" shot a 67 (-5).

Round 2

Five of the Six tied for the low round as Langer, Montgomerie, McCarron, Durant, and Jimenez ended the day at 66 (-6). Goydos was the only one not to break 70 but he came close, finishing with exactly a 70 (-2). With 2 Rounds left to play Montgomerie holds a slim 1 stroke lead. Everyone is still in the hunt for the 6 points as there's only 3 strokes between 1st and 5th, with Goydos in 6th only 6 off the pace.

Course 2 - Senior PGA Championship (72)

Round 3

Half of the competitors broke 70, while 2 of the remaining 3 were over Par. Durant led the way with his second 64 of the series, courtesy of a great result from a BD roll on the course card. Langer was next with a 68 (-4), followed by Goydos at 69 (-3) and Jimenez at 70 (-2). McCarron and Montgomerie were both 1 over with a 73. Durant (197) has a 3 stroke lead over Langer (200).

Round 4

The highest round of the day still took home 6 points. Goydos carded the low score with a 67, next was McCarron at 68, followed by Langer, Montgomerie, and Jimenez, all with a 69. Langer's 69 left him with a 269 (-19), ahead of Montgomerie, Goydos, McCarron, and Jimenez, who all finished at 272 (-16). Durant needed to end the day with a 71 or better to claim the 6 points for himself and move Langer to 2nd place and 5 points. A poor Drive result on a Skill Check left Durant with a 72, which didn't hurt his point total as he finished with a 269 (-19) and 6 points, but it also allowed Langer to tie for 1st and claim 6 points, instead of 5. Will that 1 point come back to haunt Durant ? Only time will tell.

While it is all anecdotal, what I enjoy seeing are the overall scores on each course.

Mediate won the real life Senior PGA at -19 last year. And Langer won the 2016 Regions tradition at -17. Which are on par (pun intended) with your results.

Massaging the course cards for the game is probably one of the most difficult ratings we do for ANY game. And it's always cool to see the results.

Love the pun ! I may have mentioned to you a few times Very Happy that POTG Golf is my favorite game, from any company. I've played it a lot, and I do mean a lot, and have been very impressed with the results. The Team Edition is the icing on the cake.

I expect that the next course, SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, will be a much tougher test for these six. It's a Par 70, and the Base Scores, as well as the course card in general, are just brutal. That's as it should be since the winning score was 1 over Par.

Course 3 - SENIOR PLAYERS Championship (70)

Round 1

The low scores of the first two courses are just a memory. The base scores and course card are brutal and the results show it. Only 2 scores broke par, both by the slimmest of margins. Langer and McCarron both carded a 69 (-1), with Montgomerie at 71 (+1), Jimenez at 72 (+2), Durant at 73 (+3), and Goydos at 74 (+4).

Round 2

As in Round 1 there were only two rounds out of the six that broke par, but the scoring was a bit better. Goydos had an 8 shot improvement over his first day score and went from worst to first as he had a great result on a Fairway Skill Check to record the low round of the day with a 66 (-4). Durant was 5 shots better than yesterday as he notched a 68 (-2). Jimenez was next with a 70 (E), followed by Montgomerie with his second straight 71 (+1). Langer and McCarron both went from first to worst as they each carded the high round of the day with a 73 (+3). Langer's score came courtesy of a poor result on a Par 3 Scoring Check.

The 6 points are still anyone's to claim. Goydos is in the lead with a 140 (E), with Durant in second with a 141 (+1). Everyone else is just 2 shots off the pace with a 142 (+2).

Course 3 - SENIOR PLAYERS Championship (70)

Round 3

Only 3 strokes separated the high round from the low round. Jimenez was the only one of the six to shoot under par, carding a 69 (-1). McCarron was next with a 70 (E), followed by Langer and Montgomerie at 71 (+1), with Durant and Goydos bringing up the rear at 72 (+2). Jimenez is in the lead with a score of 211 (+1) but it's still anybody's ballgame as there are only 2 strokes between the top and the bottom.

Round 4

This round was even closer than the third as there were only 2 shots between first and sixth. No one could crack 70 for the day with Goydos coming the closest, recording exactly a 70 (E). The next spot was crowded as Durant, McCarron, and Jimenez all notched a 71 (+1). Langer and Montgomerie were at the bottom, each with a 72 (+2).

At the end of the 4th Round there were more points separating first from last than there were strokes. Goydos and Jimenez each claimed 6 points with a 282 (+2). McCarron took 4 points for his 283 (+3), while Durant grabbed 3 points with a 284 (+4). Langer and Montgomerie shot identical scores in the 3rd Round, 4th Round, and overall as they both came in at the bottom with a score of 285 (+5), good enough for just 2 points.

With 2 events left to play there are still 5 in the running for the title. Montgomerie's chances however are about the same as mine.

Course 4 - Senior Open Championship (72)

The base scores are no walk in the park, with the course card being perhaps a bit more forgiving.

Round 1

Four of the six scorecards reported totals under par. Langer had a good result from a Putting Skill Check, while Durant grabbed a good result from the course card, enabling them both to record the low round of the day at 69 (-3). Montgomerie and McCarron are each 2 strokes back after shooting a 71 (-1), with Jimenez next at 72 (E), followed by Goydos at the bottom with a 75 (+3).

Round 2

It was deja vu all over again as Yogi purportedly said, with four of the six rounds again being under par, as well as 69 again being the low round of the day, recorded, again, on 2 scorecards. Goydos pulled his game out of the rough, getting a good result from the course card, while McCarron made hay with a Par 3 Scoring Check, as they both notched a 69 (-3). Next in line, again, was a 71 (-1), marked, again, on two cards, this time by Langer and Jimenez. An even par score was, again ( last time, I promise Smile ), on one scorecard, as Montgomerie shot a 72 (E). Bringing up the rear was Durant with a 74 (+2), courtesy of a poor result on a Putting Skill Check.

Langer and McCarron flip flopped 1st and 2nd Round scores and are tied at the top with a 140 (-4). Montgomerie, Durant, and Jimenez are bunched together at 143 (-1), with Goydos at the bottom with a 144 (E). Goydos will have to step it up or he'll be with Montgomerie, playing the final course just for fun.

Course 4 - Senior Open Championship (72)

Round 3

Five of the six scores broke par. Montgomerie and Durant each finished with a 69 (-3), followed by Jimenez at 70 (-2). Langer and McCarron were next at 71 (-1), with Goydos at the bottom after shooting a 74 (+2). After three rounds Langer and McCarron are at the top, each with a 211 (-5). Just 1 shot back are Montgomerie and Durant at 212 (-4), with Jimenez next at 213 (-3). Goydos is still alive but only in the world of mathematics, as his 218 (+2) leaves him 7 shots back and his chances for picking up a significant number of points doesn't look good.

Round 4

Not a good day for scoring as only two rounds finished under par. McCarron and Goydos each squeezed in under par with scores of 71 (-1). Montgomerie, Durant, and Jimenez all just missed par as they each ended the day at 73 (+1). Langer came in at the bottom, carding a 76 (+4), courtesy of a disastrous result on an +(SD) roll.

McCarron took 6 points for the first time in the competition, finishing with a 282 (-6). Montgomerie and Durant were next, each claiming 5 points for scores of 285 (-3). Jimenez picked up 3 points for his 286 (-2). Langer came away with only 2 points after ending with a 287 (-1). His overall chances severely damaged by that +(SD) result. Goydos took only 1 point after finishing at the bottom with a 289 (+1).

With one course left to play there are still four in the hunt for the Cup. Realistically however, that four is only three. Montgomerie and Goydos will enjoy a leisurely four rounds at the final course as they are out of the running. Langer cannot win the Cup, he can only tie for it. For that to happen he has to take 6 points, and then have Durant, McCarron, and Jimenez finish in a certain order. A very tall task indeed, and I rate his chances as Silm and None, with Slim already headed out of town. Stranger things have happened however, with 2016 in Augusta, Georgia coming to mind. Durant, McCarron, and Jimenez are the ones truly in contention for the Cup and that race is still wide open.

Course 5 - U.S. Senior Open (70)

Round 1

There was only one round under Par, but it scorched the rest of the field. Miguel Angel Jimenez got a fantastic result from a Drive Skill Check and finished the day with a 65 (-5), putting him 6 strokes ahead of his nearest competitor. Joe Durant was next on the leaderboard at 71 (+1), followed by Goydos, Langer, and McCarron, all at 72 (+2). Colin Montgomerie found his name at the bottom after shooting a 74 (+4).

Round 2

No fantastic results today, as everyone finished over Par. Jimenez, Durant, and Montgomerie tied for the low round of the day at 71 (+1). Goydos shot a 72 (+2) for the second straight day, while Langer and McCarron brought up the rear, each notching a 73 (+3).

After two rounds Jimenez leads the way with a 136 (-4). Durant is 6 strokes back at 142 (+2), with Goydos next at 144 (+4). Langer, McCarron, and Montgomerie are tied for the bottom, with each of them putting a 145 (+5) on their scorecard. Durant doesn't have to catch Jimenez to win the Cup, finishing second to Miguel would be good enough. Durant's real battle will be to stay in second, and he only has a 2 shot cushion for that spot. Miguel on the other hand, needs to secure the 6 points, and get some help. Langer, for the tie, and McCarron, for the win, are both still alive, but only in a mathematics classroom.

Course 5 - U.S. Senior Open (70)

Round 3

The answer to the question of who's going to win the Cup just got murkier. Bernhard Langer's great result on a Trouble Skill Check enabled him to record the low round of the day with a 66 (-4). Colin Montgomerie got a good result on a BD roll and finished second on the day at 69 (-1). Miguel Angel Jimenez was next at 70 (E), followed by Joe Durant with his third straight 71 (+1). Scott McCarron ended fifth on the day with a 72 (+2). Paul Goydos finished on the bottom, carding a 76 (+6), courtesy of a +SD roll.

Jimenez is at the top after 3 Rounds with a 206 (-4) and looks good for the 6 points with a 5 shot lead. Langer is in second with a 211 (+1). Bernhard already had a steep hill to climb coming into this course, and the ascent hasn't gotten any easier. Durant has been pushed to third at 213 (+3). Joe is 7 shots off the lead which seems to be out of reach, but he's only 2 shots out of second, which would be good enough for him to win the Cup. The flip side however is that he's only 1 shot ahead of fourth, and fourth place does him no good with Jimenez looking good for first. Montgomerie was out of the running coming into this course but he's in fourth at 214 (+4) and could certainly spoil things for Durant. McCarron's odds were long coming in and they haven't gotten any shorter, as he's currently in fifth at 217 (+7). Goydos, who had no chance coming in, is at the bottom with a 220 (+10).





Round 4

Everyone shot under Par, 2 Rounds of 66 and 4 Rounds of 69. For the second day in a row Langer marked a 66 (-4) on his scorecard, this time the result of a Par 4 Scoring Check. Joining Langer with a 66 (-4) of his own was Scott McCarron, courtesy of a Drive Skill Check. Jimenez, Durant, Montgomerie, and Goydos all notched a 69 (-1). After 4 rounds of play Miguel Angel Jimenez had survived a furious final 2 day charge by Bernhard Langer and held onto the top spot on the leaderboard, and the 6 points, with a 275 (-5). Langer took 5 points with his 277 (-3), but even if he had overcome Jimenez the rest of the dominoes wouldn't have fallen his way. Durant fended off spoiler attempts by McCarron and Montgomerie, finishing third and claiming 4 points with a 282 (+2). McCarron and Montgomerie each took 3 points after they both finished with a 283 (+3). Goydos occupied the bottom rung with his 289 (+9).

By taking 6 points Jimenez ended at the top with a total of 24. Miguel had company at the top however, as Joe Durant, with his third place finish, also ended with 24 points. McCarron and Langer both had just too much to overcome heading into the final four rounds, finishing with 22 and 20 points respectively. Montgomerie with 15 points, and Goydos with 14 points, finished in fifth and sixth.

After taking Monday off, this is the "Senior" Challenge Cup after all Smile, the Cup will be decided by 18 holes of Match Play at this same U.S. Senior Open course.

2016 Senior Challenge Cup Playoff

Match Play

Course - U.S. Senior Open

Joe Durant -v- Miguel Angel Jimenez


The fans who left this Match early could hardly be blamed. They had already stayed two extra days past an expected Sunday finish, and this contest started out as a laugher. However, those who stayed until the end were in for a treat, as this laugher turned into a nail-biter.

Jimenez takes the 1st Hole, the 2nd is Halved, and after two have been played Jimenez is 1 Up. Miguel then wins the next 3 in a row, #'s 3, 4, and 5, to go 4 Up after five and it appears that the rout is on. Durant gets one back by taking the 6th, but Jimenez returns the favor by claiming #7 to bump his lead back to 4 Up. Numbers 8 and 9 are a repeat of 6 and 7, Durant winning #8, Jimenez winning #9, and with only 9 to go Durant is in a very deep hole as Jimenez is still 4 Up. The 10th is Halved and then it seems as if Durant has a shovel in each hand as the hole that he's in gets deeper when Jimenez takes #11 to go 5 Up with just 7 left to play.

The 12th is Halved and Jimenez remains 5 Up, but now there's only six holes left to play. Things are looking very bleak for Durant, until Mo decides to switch sides. Joe wins 13 and 14 to cut Miguel's lead to 3 Up, but there's only four left to play and Durant is still in the fire, trying to climb back into the frying pan. The Match goes dormie when the 15th is Halved and Jimenez just needs to Halve one of the remaining three holes to seal the win. Miguel doesn't get it done at #16, or #17, as Durant wins both Holes and Jimenez is now just 1 Up with one hole to play, in a Match that looked like it was done and dusted just a short while ago. Durant pars the 18th and I'm hoping, along with the remaining spectators, that Jimenez bogeys the hole because we want to see this Match go more than 18. It was not to be however, as Jimenez also pars the hole, giving him the Match, 1 Up, and along with it the 2016 Senior Challenge Cup.

I was really pulling for Jimenez to bogey the 18th, but the dice had other ideas. And as we all know, the dice always get their way.
