Even with Halloween and fall in the air, spring is in the minds of some in Gwinnett.
And again in 2014, that will mean pro golf in Gwinnett. The PGA Champions Tour will stop at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth in April.
Dates for the event, which features pro golfers 50 and over, will be April 14-19, the week after the Masters tournament in Augusta, according to Stan Hall of the Gwinnett Sports Commission. And Hall said the sports commission is "well under way" in planning for the 2014 event.
The 2013 event at TPC Sugarloaf marked the return of pro golf to Gwinnett for the first time since 2008. And the three-day tournament portion drew about 25,000 spectators despite a rainy Friday.
Germany's Bernhard Langer was the winner, with a 10-under 206.
The proximity on the calendar of the Gwinnett event to the Masters also means that some big names from the Augusta event will stop in Duluth. In 2013, Tom Watson was among those playing in both tournaments.
