The player field has been finalized for the inaugural American Family Insurance Championship at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison on June 24-26.
The PGA Tour Champions event will include eight of the top 10 players in the current Schwab Cup standings, including Bernhard Langer, winner of two major senior championships in the 2016 season.
