Florida-based pro Mark Calcavecchia defeated Russ Cochran on the first playoff hole Sunday, Aug. 28, to get his first Champions Tour victory at the Boeing Classic.
An estimated 30,000 fans watched Calcavecchia claim the title at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.
"Even if I hadn't won or even if I finished 20th or 30th, this is a place that I enjoy,” Calcavecchia said of his Boeing Classic experience. “I thought the course played fabulous."
The Boeing Company, Virginia Mason Medical Center and the Champions Tour have agreed to extend the term of the Boeing Classic in Snoqualmie through 2014.
