Quebec Championship removed from Champions Tour schedule

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) The Quebec Championship has been dropped from the Champions Tour schedule. The event was scheduled for Sept. 4-6.

The PGA Tour announced the decision Friday, saying tournament organizers recently informed the Champions Tour they were unable to adequately fund a full-field event this year following financial difficulties last season during the inaugural tournament.

Wes Short Jr. won in September at La Tempete Golf Club in Quebec City. The tournament was the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in the area since the 1956 Labatt Open at Royal Quebec.
