The PGA Tour heads to the historic city of New Orleans for the Zurich Classic. This tournament has been held annually since 1958, although it was first contested in 1938 and is among the oldest on Tour. Previous winners have included some of the greats of the game and include Billy Casper, Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus and Davis Love III to name just a few. Last year, Bubba Watson added his name to the list of champions after matching Webb Simpson's 15-under total in regulation on the TPC Louisiana course and then went one better on the second playoff hole. It was Watson's third PGA Tour victory and second of the 2011 season. The win moved Watson from 10th to 1st in the FedExCup standings and also made him one of two people with multiple wins on the PGA Tour up to that point. Watson will be back in 2012 to defend his title along with early commitments Ernie Els and Graeme McDowell, as well as previous Zurich Champions David Toms, Jason Bohn, Jerry Kelly, Andres Romero, Tim Petrovic, Steve Flesch and Scott McCarron.
