Bruno's Supermarkets has withdrawn as the presenting sponsor of the Champions Tour's Regions Charity Classic, the Birmingham (Ala.) Business Journal is reporting today.

Bruno's founded the event in 1992, when it was known as the Bruno's Memorial Tournament. In 2006, Regions Financial Corp. took over title sponsorship, when it became the Regions Charity Classic Presented by Bruno's Supermarkets.

There is no word yet on why Bruno's has pulled its support or how it might affect the tournament.
