 Regions Financial Corporation and the PGA's Champions Tour announced today that the 2015 Regions Tradition, a major championship on the Champions Tour, will be played at Shoal Creek from May 13-17 next year.
 
"Our May dates will allow us to once again host a major championship that will be popular with both the players and our patrons," said Regions Tradition general chairman Brad Bailey. "It's an honor for us to kick off the major championship season on the Champions Tour with one of the strongest fields of the year."
