LEHI — The Champions Challenge, a mainstay on the Utah golf scene for the past 12 years, will not be played this year and may be gone for good in Utah.”I have been told by tournament director Ken Leister that the Champions Challenge will not be played this year,” said Randy Dodson, the president of Fairways Media, who handled press relations for the event. “The tournament that has annually brought some of golf’s biggest names to Utah has had a remarkable run and will be missed by golf fans here in Utah.”The tournament, which was scheduled for Aug. 2 and 3, has struggled to keep sponsors and has had challenges with consistent tournament dates. Usually played in midsummer at Thanksgiving Point, it has twice been postponed until October, including last year’s event, won by long drivers Bobby Wilson and Jason Zuback. Sponsors over the years have included Rug Doctor, WOW Digital TV, Trend Micro, Nokia and the Sorenson Group.The Challenge was the brainchild of former BYU golfer and Utah resident Johnny Miller, who brought top-name golfers to Thanksgiving Point Golf Club, which he designed, on an annual basis.The first tournament was held June 22 and 23 in 1998 and featured the likes of Jack Nicklaus, John Daly, Laura Davies, Fuzzy Zoeller, Gary Player, Hale Irwin, Jim Furyk, Craig Stadler and Billy Casper, who was part of the first winning team with his son, Bobby.In subsequent years, the tournament attracted top golfers such as Sergio Garcia, Annika Sorenstam, Lee Trevino, Tom Kite, Juli Inkster, Mike Reid, Dave Stockton, Bruce Summerhays, Ray Floyd, Mark O’Meara, Ian Baker-Finch, Rocco Mediate, Mike Weir and Dean Wilson.Besides the famous golfers, the tournament has also included the likes of Bill Murray, Deron Williams and Kyle Korver as noncompeting players.A few years ago when he was asked about the health of the tournament, Miller said: “It’s always a struggle for a two-day event on a Monday and a Tuesday for that kind of purse. Imagine having to pay off the pros $400,000-plus in a two-day event. But we’ve been able to pull it off.”But not any more.With the announcement Thursday that Miller had purchased the Silverado Resort in Napa, Calif., there is speculation that Miller will relocate the Champions Challenge at his new course in the future.e-mail: [email protected]
Related All the guys feel really bad for him, Hopefully he can rehab as quick as possible and get back as soon as he can. – Joe Ingles, on Alec BurksSALT LAKE CITY — Suddenly that gimme home game on Monday night against Philadelphia doesn’t seem like such an automatic win for the Utah Jazz after all.Not after what transpired on Saturday night.That’s when the Jazz, already down a starting player in center Rudy Gobert, played without Derrick Favors and then had Alec Burks go down with a serious injury midway through a 109-104 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.Meanwhile down in Phoenix, the woeful 76ers were defeating the Phoenix Suns 111-104 for just their second win of the season in 32 games.So the Jazz won’t be able to sleepwalk through Monday night’s home game with the 76ers, a team they beat by 28 points in Philadelphia in the opening week of the season.Burks, who had to miss the last two-thirds of last season with a shoulder injury, was diagnosed with a broken left fibula resulting from a hard foul late in the second quarter of Saturday night’s game when he also suffered concussion-like symptoms. No surgery is required, but Burks will be out indefinitely.“Obviously for him and our team, it sucks after what he’s just come off and the rehabbing he’s done and to play at the level he’s been playing at the first 20 to 30 games this year,’’ said Joe Ingles, who should get increased playing time in Burks’ absence. “All the guys feel really bad for him, Hopefully he can rehab as quick as possible and get back as soon as he can.’’Coach Quin Snyder said as bad as everyone feels for Burks, the Jazz can’t feel sorry for themselves as a team, which still stands in the eighth spot in the Western Conference standings at 12-16.“It’s one of those times, you feel bad for Alec, but you don’t feel bad for yourself,’’ he said. “It doesn’t do any good. Guys have got to come together and continue to work hard and get better.’’Snyder wouldn’t say how his rotations would change, but it’s expected that Ingles and Elijah Millsap will pick up a lot of the slack along with Chris Johnson. All three played at least 10 minutes Saturday night, with Ingles going 25 minutes, his second-most of the season.“Suddenly at the wing position we become less deep,’’ Snyder said. “We’ve got some guys that need to come in and compete — compete within the team.’’With Burks joining Dante Exum and Rudy Gobert on the sidelines, the Jazz will be quite short-handed for at least the next few weeks until Gobert returns. But Snyder said the Jazz won’t necessarily be bringing in new players.“You’re always evaluating your roster, it’s something Dennis (Lindsey) does and we talk about,’’ Snyder said. “We don’t overreact is the bottom line. Those thoughts and discussions, they happen in May, in August, they happen all the time. This is no different. Right now we are who we are. We’ve got a couple of guys on the bench who are going to play more.’’The Sixers have been called one of the worst teams in NBA history after losing their first 18 games of the season before beating the Lakers and standing 1-30 before Saturday night’s victory. The Sixers’ bench was particularly effective against the Suns, scoring more than half the team’s points with 57 of the 111.Nik Stauskas led the reserves with 17 points, while veteran Carl Landry scored 16 and Hollis Thompson added nine. Among the starters, point guard Isaiah Canaan scored 22 points, while Nerlens Noel and Ish Smith each added 14 points, with Noel getting 11 rebounds. Rookie center Jahil Okafor missed the game with a sore right knee.Snyder said the Sixers are able to push the tempo more after picking up Smith last week, and he praises the work of coach Brett Brown, who he worked with in the San Antonio Spurs organization.“They’re getting better, they’re young, they play hard,’’ Snyder said. “They’ve hit a tipping point where they’re a more confident team and obviously they’re playing better.”The Jazz hope to have Derrick Favors back Monday after he missed Saturday’s game with back spasms. He is listed as questionable. However, Rodney Hood, who twice left Saturday’s game with a glute strain, is expected to play.After Monday’s game, the Jazz will take a quick trip to Minnesota to face the Timberwolves Wednesday night before returning home for three straight home games, Thursday against Portland, Saturday against Memphis and Monday against Houston.
