After hitting the 50 mark in February, Bjørn, who is the most successful golfer in Danish history having won 15 tournaments on the European Tour, certainly made his mark on his Legends Tour career in 2021. The Dane claimed his maiden Legends Tour title at the Irish Legends presented by the McGinley Foundation at Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort after posting a closing six under par round of 65 to join Welshman Phillip Price on 15 under par which forced a play-off. The duo both made par on the first trip down the par five 18th hole and on the second play-off hole, Price saw his birdie putt lip-out leaving Bjørn with a five-foot putt for the win, which he duly converted.
The 2018 Ryder Cup Captain is set to cap off his maiden Legends Tour season by teeing it up at the tenth anniversary edition of the MCB Tour Championship – Mauritius from 25 – 27 March 2022.

Having turned 50 in December 2020, Čejka made his Legends Tour debut this year and it was a fairy-tale start to his over 50s career, becoming the first golfer in the history of the PGA Tour Champions to win his first two starts in major championships.
He captured the 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship by four shots after a 3-under 67 Sunday, only three weeks after winning the Regions Traditions beating Steve Stricker in a play-off. At the start of the season Čejka was playing in the Monday Qualifiers and said his goal was primarily to get status for the rest of the year, however a lot has changed since then now that he is a two-time major winner.

This season Cévaër competed in eight events on the 2021 Legends Tour schedule with his best finish coming on home soil at the Legends Open de France hosted by Jean van de Velde cementing a top 20 finish in 19th position – an event which saw former Frenchman Thomas Levet secure his first of two Legends Tour titles in 2021.
