2010 FedExCup champion and PGA TOUR Player of the Year Jim Furyk headlines the field at the TOUR's season-opening event this week, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. 

PGA TOUR Season Launch

Jim Furyk defends his FedExCup title, as the 2011 season marks the fifth since the inception of the FedExCup, the season-long points competition that has provided a strong, compelling conclusion to the golf season.

The official-money schedule features 45 events, beginning with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions (Jan. 6-9) and concluding with the Children's Miracle Network Classic (Oct. 20-23)

The rookies: 28 of 34 PGA TOUR rookies in 2011 are under the age of 30, led by 22-year-old Jamie Lovemark, the 2010 Nationwide Tour Player of the Year.

The PGA TOUR welcomes Hyundai, Cadillac and FedEx as new title sponsors in 2011, at tournaments in Hawaii (Hyundai Tournament of Champions), Miami (World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship) and Memphis (FedEx St. Jude Classic), respectively. Nationwide will serve as the presenting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, OH.

E-notes 

PGA TOUR

At the age of 23, Jason Day is the youngest player in the field at this week’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions. The youngest winner in tournament history was Tiger Woods, who was 21 years and 13 days when he won the 1997 event. In the last 10 years, 2002 champion Sergio Garcia is the youngest winner at 21 years, 11 months and 28 days.

Sixteen players won for the first time on TOUR in 2010, including the 13 following players on hand at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions: Bill Haas, Ian Poulter, Derek Lamely, Tim Clark, Jason Day, Justin Rose, Graeme McDowell, Bubba Watson, Matt Bettencourt, Bill Lunde, Arjun Atwal, Robert Garrigus and Francesco Molinari.  Molinari’s World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions victory was an unofficial PGA TOUR win, but he is eligible to compete at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions under the tournament’s exempt criteria.

Winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions has traditionally sparked an outstanding season – out of the last 19 winners, 2008 champion Daniel Chopra is the only player who failed to advance to THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola, the fourth and final event in the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup.

Dating to 1989, just three players have won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in their first attempt: Daniel Chopra (2008); Sergio Garcia (2002); and Steve Jones (1989).

Geoff Ogilvy is one of seven players to win the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in back-to-back seasons and is seeking to become the third player to win the event three consecutive times: Ogilvy (2009-10); Stuart Appleby (2004-05-06); Lanny Wadkins (1982-83); Tom Watson (1979-80); Arnold Palmer (1965-66); Jack Nicklaus (1963-64) and Gene Littler (1955-56-57). Ogilvy is seeking the sixth win by an Aussie in the last eight years (Appleby, 2004-06; Ogilvy, 2009-10).

International players have captured the title at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions an amazing nine consecutive years (Geoff Ogilvy -- 2009-10; Daniel Chopra – 2008; Vijay Singh -- 2007; Stuart Appleby – 2004-06; Ernie Els – 2003; Sergio Garcia -- 2002). The last American to win the Hyundai Tournament of Champions was Jim Furyk in 2001.


CHAMPIONS TOUR

Sir Bob Charles
, the first New Zealander to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, has been awarded New Zealand’s highest civil honor. The 74-year-old became a member of the Order of New Zealand at the beginning of the New Year. The membership is limited to 20 living people. Charles was knighted for services to golf in 1999.

Seven World Golf Hall of Fame members are scheduled to appear in the 45-man field at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai – Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Nick Price, Curtis Strange and Tom Watson. Forty-five players is the most number of players ever assembled in the history of the event. In both 2007 and 2008 there were 41 professionals in the field.
