E-Notes – October 26, 2010
Justin Timberlake
Shriners Hospitals for Children Open winner Jonathan Byrd became the second straight player to record a hole-in-one in a tournament and go on to victory. Last week at the Open, champion Rocco Mediate made a hole-in-one in the first round. Before Mediate, the last player to achieve the feat was Richard S. Johnson at the 2008 U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee.

Two of the four PGA TOUR Fall Series winners – Jonathan Byrd (No. 130) and Rocco Mediate (No. 188) began the Fall Series outside the top 125 on the PGA TOUR Official Money List.

Heading into the final official money event of 2010, the Children’s Miracle Network Classic, Joe Durant has the opportunity to lead the PGA TOUR in both Driving Accuracy (76.14 percent) and Greens in Regulation (72.12 percent). The last player to lead both categories in the same year was Calvin Peete, who did so three straight years (1981-83). In his career, Durant has led the TOUR in Driving Accuracy three times (2001, 2006, 2009) and Greens in Regulation three times (2003, 2004, 2008).

The CIMB Asia Pacific Classic, Malaysia is the first tournament sanctioned by the PGA TOUR in Southeast Asia. The tournament is co-sanctioned by the PGA TOUR, Asian Tour and the Professional Golf Association of Malaysia (PGAM). The 40-player field features the top 25 (and then top available players) from the final FedExCup standings, top 10 from the 2010 Asian Tour Order of Merit, as well as five sponsor exemptions. Thirteen players that competed at THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola are in the field.

Rookie Troy Merritt left the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in sole possession of first place at 17-under-par in the chase for the Kodak Challenge $1 million prize. Merritt eagled the par-5 560-yard 16th hole at TPC Summerlin to pass Rickie Fowler and Aaron Baddeley, who both remain one shot off Merritt’s lead at 16-under-par. There is just one hole left in the 2010 Kodak Challenge, which concludes on No. 17 at the Children’s Miracle Network Classic.

Fred Couples’
seven-stroke winning margin at the Administaff Small Business Classic matched David Frost’s seven-stroke victory margin at this year’s 3M Championship as the largest on the Champions Tour in 2010.

Mark Wiebe’s runner-up finish at the Administaff Small Business Classic earned him $149,600 and vaulted him from 40th to 30th on the money list with $582,546. The top-30 players after this week’s AT&T Championship earn a spot into the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. It was Wiebe’s best finish in a Champions Tour event since his win in 2008 at The Cap Cana Championship.

Fred Couples earned 255 Charles Schwab Cup points for his win in Houston and sliced Bernhard Langer’s lead to 535 points with two events remaining. Even if Langer wins the AT&T Championship (Couples is not playing), the Charles Schwab Cup will be decided at the final tournament of the season, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship at Harding Park in San Francisco.

In three appearances at the AT&T Championship, John Cook has back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008, and a fifth last year. Of his nine rounds at Oak Hills, Cook has posted eight rounds in the 60s (71/Round 2/2009) and has averaged 66.7 strokes-per-round at the course.

Jay Haas’ victory in the 2005 AT&T Championship made him the sixth player to capture both a Champions Tour and PGA TOUR event in San Antonio. John Mahaffey, Don January, Bruce Crampton, Chi Chi Rodriguez and Lee Trevino are the other double-winners in the Alamo City.

Currently in its 26th year in San Antonio, the AT&T Championship holds the distinction as the longest running event in one city on the Champions Tour. The ACE Group Classic (Naples) and Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am (Tampa) are second at 23 years.

It all comes down to this week for 200+ players who began 2010 with aspirations of earning one of "The 25" PGA TOUR cards for 2011 that are available via the Nationwide Tour. Only the top-60 money winners are eligible for this week's season-ending Nationwide Tour Championship at Daniel Island in Charleston, SC. The difference between Nos. 25 and 60 is $75,817. With a first prize of $180,000, every player in the field has a chance to play their way into "The 25".
Chris Nallen (Tucson, AZ/U. of Arizona) is No. 25 on the money list for the second week in a row. He maintains a $1,217 lead over No. 26 Brandt Jobe (Southlake, TX/UCLA).

Finishing No. 1 on the Nationwide Tour money list carries significant implications — fully-exempt PGA TOUR status next year and an invitation to THE PLAYERS. Jamie Lovemark (Jupiter, FL/USC) leads in earnings ($421,784). Chris Kirk (St. Simons Island, GA/UGA) is second ($411,206) and Tommy Gainey (Camden, SC) third ($396,557). At 22, Lovemark is looking to become the youngest player to capture the Nationwide Tour money title (Stewart Cink / 23 years, four months, 29 days in 1996).

The big movers in the last two weeks have been Won Joon Lee (Glenwood, NSW, Australia) and Jeff Curl (Charlotte, NC/UNC-Charlotte). Lee was 70th on Oct. 3rd and had finishes of T16, T4 and T2 in his last three starts to jump to 33rd. Curl was 147th in early September. Three top fives (T5, T5, T2) in October catapulted him to 54th and his first trip to the Nationwide Tour Championship.

Jeff Brehaut (Los Altos, CA/U. of the Pacific) nailed down the 60th and final Nationwide Tour Championship spot by $1,711 over Patrick Sheehan (Orlando, FL/U. of Hartford), who came to Ponte Vedra Beach, FL last week 60th. Brehaut began the week 58th.

Here are the benefits to the players this week based on their final position on the money list (other than No. 1, see above): 1- Nos. 2-25 are exempt on the PGA TOUR in 2011; 2-Those who finish 26-60 are fully exempt on the Nationwide Tour in 2011, in the event they do not secure their PGA TOUR card via the PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament in December; 3-Players who finish 26-40 are exempt into the Finals of the PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament; 4-Players who finish 41-70 are exempt into the Second Stage.
