Daly, Langer, Miguel Angel Jimenez paired in Boca Raton Championship


Crowd favorite John Daly, Boca Raton’s own Bernhard Langer and the charismatic Miguel Angel Jimenez will comprise arguably the most prominent threesome when the Boca Raton Championship gets underway Friday at the Old Course at Broken Sound.

That trio begins the 54-hole event on the first tee at 11 a.m., one hour after the tournament begins on both the No. 1 and No. 10 tees.

Ten minutes earlier, at 10:50, defending champion Scott McCarron will be joined by Colin Montgomerie and Tom Lehman in the first full-field event of the 2018 Champions Tour season. Jupiter’s Jesper Parnevik, David Toms and 2017 Charles Schwab Cup champion Kevin Sutherland go off at 11:10.

Two former Boca champions, Michael Allen (2015) and Esteban Toledo (2016) will be paired with Larry Nelson at 10:50 on the No. 10 tee, immediately followed by the trio of 2014 champion Rocco Mediate, Jeff Maggert and Kirk Triplett.

Tickets are $20 general admission, with children 17 and under and those 70 and over admitted free.

Close call: With the wind blowing 15-20 mph, 300 yards turned out to be too short a distance between the two ends of the driving range Wednesday.

A ball hit by an amateur at the east end of the range missed hitting McCarron by inches as he was standing at the west end. Tournament officials immediately sent an order for players at the east end to hit nothing more than a 5-wood and no further incidents were reported.
