PGA TOUR

  • Winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic has been part of big seasons for the last three winners. Notah Begay III (2000), Bob Estes (2001) and Len Mattiace (2002) all finished with multiple- win seasons and were 20th, 9th and 18th, respectively, on the final money list.

  • Who had the longest recorded drive at last week's Buick Classic? How about 49-year old Jay Haas, who had a 325-yard effort during the first round.

  • When Tim Petrovic entered the FedEx St. Jude Classic last year, he was an unknown rookie with $196,721 in earnings. He finished second in Memphis last year and has earned $1,616,434 in his last 32 starts.

  • Look for a winning score of around 266 this week in Memphis. That's the average winning total since the tournament moved to the TPC at Southwind in 1989.

  • Of the Top 125 on the money list, 34 players are international members led by TOUR #1, Mike Weir. International players in the Top 125 hail from 16 different countries.

  • Who are the top under-30 players on TOUR this year? Tiger Woods (#4 money list) leads the way, followed by Chad Campbell (#11), Rory Sabbatini (#19), Charles Howell III (#23) and John Rollins (#24).

  • According to ShotLink, the average PGA TOUR approach shot to the green finishes 40 feet from the hole. Retief Goosen is the leader, hitting his shots to within 30'9".
CHAMPIONS TOUR

  • Inverness CC, site of this week's U.S. Senior Open, was also the site of Champions Tour rookie Craig Stadler's 1973 U.S. Amateur Championship.

  • Miller Barber (age 72) shot his age last week at the Farmers Charity Classic. It was the third time this season that he accomplished the feat.

  • Mark Pfeil finished in a T11 last week at the Farmers Charity Classic, largely on the strength of his second-round 64. The 64 was the lowest round for Pfeil in PGA TOUR-sanctioned competition since he shot a 63 in the 1983 Texas Open.

NATIONWIDE TOUR

  • We missed this one a few weeks ago, but at the LaSalle Bank Open, Brett Wetterich hit the longest recorded drive in Nationwide Tour history --4 18 yards. That tops the old mark of 410 by Rob Bradley at the 2001 Omaha Classic. Not surprisingly, Wetterich leads the Tour in Driving Distance with a 308.9 yard average.

  • Zach Johnson is now the leading money winner on the Nationwide Tour. His $186,866 puts him ahead of Joe Ogilvie who has led the circuit since the first week of the season. Johnson has played in eight events and has finished T14 or better in seven of them, including five Top-10s.

  • This week's event, the Knoxville Open, is one of four original events still on the schedule dating back to 1990. Nine players in this week's tournament, played in that first event -- Ben Bates, Barry Cheesman, Bob Friend, Kelly Gibson, Steve Haskins, Jim McGovern, Sam Randolph, Mike Springer and Mike Standly.

  • Eduardo Herrera started slowly on the Nationwide Tour this season, missing the first three cuts. He's made five in a row since then, however, and has moved up to 48th on the money list with $36,958. Included in that five-tournament stretch were Top-10 finishes at the Virginia Beach Open (T5) and the SAS Carolina Classic (T9).
