The Rapiscan Systems Classic is a non-profit PGA TOUR Champions golf tournament in South Mississippi. It debuted eight years ago in 2010 at Fallen Oak Golf Club in Saucier, north of Biloxi. Each year, the tournament draws large crowds and puts the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the national spotlight, thanks to live coverage from The Golf Channel. The purse for the three-day competition is $1.6 million, and 78 Champions Tour players will participate.
