The 2018 Regions Tradition is the first of five major tournaments put on by the PGA Tour Champions, which features professional golfers age 50 and older. The event has been held in the Birmingham-Hoover metro area since 2011.

Last year’s tournament raised more than $700,000 for charities in Alabama.
