The final event of the PGA Tour’s Champions Tour is teeing off in San Francisco on Thursday, when some of golf’s well-known 50-and-older stars will be playing at TPC Harding Park.

The golf course, located in the southwest part of the city near Lake Merced, has hosted several PGA tour events, as well as the President’s Cup in 2009 and the Charles Schwab Cup in 2010 and this year.

Fred Couples, Tom Watson and Tom Lehman — the current No. 1 player on the Champions Tour — are among the 30 top senior players competing in this year’s tournament.

A pro-am will be played today, followed by the four-day tournament from Thursday through Sunday.

People planning on attending the tournament are recommended to park or take public transportation to the Stonestown Galleria Mall, where shuttles will run to and from the golf course.
