Past champions Steven Alker, Bernhard Langer and Miguel Angel Jimenez to compete in 2023 Dominion Energy Charity Classic

RICHMOND, Virginia – A trifecta of former Dominion Energy Charity Classic champions have committed to compete in the 2023 tournament. The Charity Classic is now in its eighth year and takes place at The Country Club of Virginia, James River Course.

Defending Champion Steven Alker has taken PGA TOUR Champions by storm, winning six times in a two-year timeframe since turning 50 years of age in 2021. The New Zealand native won four times in 2022, propelling him on to win the season-long Charles Schwab Cup race. His six wins include one senior major, the 2022 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. He has eight top-10 finishes in 2023 and is currently fifth in the Charles Schwab Cup rankings.

Bernhard Langer, the 2017 and 2021 Charity Classic champion, won his 46th event on PGA TOUR Champions earlier this season at the U.S. Senior Open, making him the career wins leader on the Champions Tour. Hale Irwin won 45 times on the senior circuit. Langer also captured the 2023 Chubb Classic and has ten top-10 finishes this season. In his Champions Tour career, which spans 17 seasons and 334 events, he has placed in the top-10 an astounding 67% of the time he tees it up. The World Golf Hall of Fame member and native of Germany is currently second in the Charles Schwab Cup rankings.

2017 Charity Classic winner Miguel Angel Jimenez has 12 PGA TOUR Champions victories to his credit. The list of wins includes two senior majors, the Regions Tradition and The Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex, with both coming in 2018. He joined the Champions Tour in 2014 and has at least one win each season, although he is still looking for his first victory in 2023. The Malaga, Spain native still calls that same city home and is ninth in the season-long Charles Schwab Cup race.

All three rounds of the Dominion Energy Charity Classic will be televised on Golf Channel, airing live from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. EDT, Friday through Sunday. Since its debut in 2016, the tournament has helped to generate over $9.3 million for charitable organizations in the local area. Tickets for this year’s tournament are currently on sale at
