The PGA Tour is following the LPGA and the Senior PGA Tour to St. Louis.
The American Express Championship will be held Sept. 13-16, 2001, at the Bellerive Country Club in west St. Louis County.
The tournament is part of the World Golf Championships, a series of events that features the best golfers from the PGA Tour and five other major golf tours.
The locations change each year, so the event is not a permanent stop in St. Louis. However, PGA Tour commissioner Timothy Finchem, who announced details of the event at Bellerive, said St. Louis is one of six areas around the country targeted for a future tour stop.
Tiger Woods is expected to be a part of the field at the American Express tournament.
