The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship is embracing its move to the Boston area with the arrival of St. Patrick’s Day by featuring legendary Boston band, the Dropkick Murphys, and their hit, “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” in the official trailer for the championship. The championship will be played at the Belmont Country Club from June 9-15, and is the third major of the year on the Champions Tour and the first event on the Tour to be played in the Boston area since 2008.
“We have fully embraced the city of Boston and its proud inhabitants,” said Joe Rotellini, executive director of the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. “St. Patrick’s Day is important to the people of Boston, and we wanted to showcase a band that is known for its strong connection to the city. The Dropkick Murphys were an obvious choice, and their song ‘I’m Shipping Up To Boston’ injects a lot of excitement into the tournament footage.”
The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS is one of five major championships on the PGA TOUR’s Champions Tour for eligible professionals age 50 and over. Collectively, the Champions Tour has the most recognizable and accomplished players in the game, with many of its members in the World Golf Hall of Fame competing regularly. The Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS has generated more than $9.5 million for charity since 1992.
