Former Atlanta Braves pitcher, John Smoltz, will be teeing it up in three Champions Tour events this season, including next month’s Cologuard Classic, the Mitsubishi Electric Classic in April, and the American Family Insurance Championship in June.
The 51-year-old Smoltz, a Baseball Hall of Famer, said, “I got some calls with these opportunities, looked at my schedule, and besides being super-excited, looked at how I could fit it in.
“That is exactly what has worked out. I have a lot of guys that I know, a lot of friends on the Tour, and I have the upmost respect for every single one of them that have played this game their whole career. I just look forward to the challenge.”
Smoltz recently teamed with Eun-Hee Ji to win the LPGA Tour’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions.
He qualified for the U.S. Senior Open last year in Colorado, but missed the cut with opening rounds of 85 and 77.
