TOUR TALK

PGA TOUR
Five players that competed at THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola have captured Fall Series events during their careers: Matt Kuchar (2009 Turning Stone Resort Championship), Dustin Johnson (2008 Turning Stone Resort Championship), Martin Laird (2009 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open) Ryan Palmer (2008 Ginn sur Mer Classic) and Zach Johnson (2008 Valero Texas Open).

At this week’s Viking Classic, Arjun Atwal will make his first start since his win at the Wyndham Championship. A non-member until his victory in Greensboro, Atwal was not eligible for the four tournaments in the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. It will mark Atwal’s third career start at the Viking Classic.

As the 5-tournament PGA TOUR Fall Series begins this week, there are a number of players vying to jump or stay inside the top 125 on the Official Money List. As it stands through THE TOUR Championship, Chris Stroud currently sits at No. 125 with $611,069. At the same time last year, Jimmy Walker was No. 125 with $542,685.

With five events remaining in the Kodak Challenge, Rickie Fowler leads at 14-under-par over fellow rookie Troy Merritt, who sits at 12-under-par. Six players are three back at 11-under-par. Players must play at least 18 of the 30 Kodak Challenge holes throughout the season to compete for $1 million and the Kodak Challenge title. A player’s lowest score relative to par on his best 18 Kodak Challenge holes will be counted.

Five players in the field last week at THE TOUR Championship qualified in all four seasons of the FedExCup:

CHAMPIONS TOUR
With the Ryder Cup being staged in Wales this week, the Ensure Classic at Rock Barn field is made up of nearly 25 percent of former Ryder Cup representatives. Four players in the field served as captains (Tom Kite/1997 and Hal Sutton/2004 for the U.S.; Mark James/1999 and Bernhard Langer/2004 for Europe).

Tom Byrum, the winner of the 1989 Kemper Open, will make his Champions Tour debut at the Ensure Classic at Rock Barn, playing on a sponsor’s exemption. Byrum, who turns 50 on Tuesday, Sept. 28, spent more than 20 years on the PGA TOUR, earning over $6.5 million. His older brother, Curt, will be serving as a GOLF CHANNEL analyst for the tournament telecast.

Mark Carnevale, the 1992 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year, will play on a sponsor’s exemption at the Ensure Classic at Rock Barn. Carnevale was the former tournament director of this event before working as an analyst for the PGA TOUR Sirius XM Network.

John Cook, Mike Goodes and Mark Wiebe are the only players to have competed in all 21 previous Champions Tour events this year. Goodes and Wiebe are scheduled to compete at the Ensure Classic.

Tom Pernice Jr.’s runner-up finish at the SAS Championship was the best effort by a defending champion this year on the Champions Tour. It was also his seventh straight top-10 performance.

NATIONWIDE TOUR
This week's Soboba Classic will have the strongest field to date in 2010. —All but one of the top-60 money winners are entered and 95 of the top 100.

The Nationwide Tour has three players who are ranked among the top 200 in the world based on this week's Official World Golf Ranking - Jamie Lovemark (126), Chris Kirk (138) and Kevin Chappell (185). Lovemark, Kirk and Chappell are Nos. 1, 2 and 6, respectively, on the Tour's money list.

Jamie Lovemark, a native of the San Diego area, heads home to Southern California this week for the Soboba Classic as the Nationwide Tour's leading money winner. The former USC All-American is the Tour's youngest player (22). He has a win in Mexico, three runners-up, two third-place finishes and eight top 10s in all.

Jeff Klauk announced last week he will be making his return to competitive golf next month on the Nationwide Tour. A 2008 Nationwide Tour graduate after finishing third on the money list, Klauk has committed to play the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open (Oct. 28-31), which will be played at the Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass. The 2000 Florida Southern University grad grew up playing at TPC Sawgrass and served on the maintenance staff under his father, Fred, the club's longtime superintendent. Klauk had back surgery in May. He subsequently had a procedure done to repair a lingering left ankle injury. Klauk suggested he may play one or two other Nationwide Tour events in October.

Four of the Nationwide Tour's final five events will be televised on GOLF Channel — this week's Soboba Classic/San Jacinto, CA, followed by the Miccosukee Championship/Miami, FL, Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open/Ponte Vedra Beach, FL and Nationwide Tour Championship at Daniel Island/Charleston, SC.
