The Senior Players Championship (known as the Constellation Senior Players Championship for sponsorship reasons) is one of the five major championships on golf's Champions Tour. Unlike the U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA Championship and the Senior British Open, it is not recognized as a major by the European Seniors Tour, and is not part of that tour's schedule. The inaugural event was in 1983. The lower age limit is 50, which is the standard limit for men's senior professional golf tournaments. The winner gains entry into the following season's Players Championship on the PGA Tour.
