Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf defending champions David Eger and Mark McNulty announced they will be back to defend their Legends Division title when the tournament returns to the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa on April 16-22.
Eger and McNulty came from four strokes back last year to win the event in a playoff over Kenny Perry and Scott Hoch on the second hole. The victory was the eighth official title for McNulty and his first win on the Champions Tour since the 2009 Principal Charity Classic. For Eger, it was his fourth victory on the circuit and first since the 2010 Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic.
Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf executive director Joe Rotellini served as host of Tuesday's media day for the tournament. He provided a preview of next month's event, which will mark the tournament's 10th year in Savannah.
