The Champions Tour Pro-Am golf tournament, that has been a fixture in Tampa for 25 years, is not on the schedule for 2013.

The Champions Tour schedule was released today, and the Pro-Am date of April 15-21 was replaced by a tournament in Duluth, GA.

Outback Steakhouse was the title sponsor from 2004-11, in the Pro-Am format.  But Outback withdrew as a title sponsor, with Encompass Insurance taking over for one year, in 2012.  The tour could not find a title sponsor to take over for 2013.

The tournament began in 1988 at Tampa Palms, as the GTE Classic.  It moved to the TPC of Tampa Bay in 1993, where it was played every year.
