  • When Phil Mickelson won last week at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic it marked the fifth time in his career that he won his initial start of the season. The others were Tucson (1991), Mercedes Championships (1994 and 1998) and the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in 2002.

  • Vijay Singh will be looking for his 11th consecutive Top-10 finish this week. If he does it, he'll be the first player since Greg Norman in 1993-94 to have 11 in a row.

  • If Phil Mickelson isn't the player to watch this week at the FBR Open, Rocco Mediate might be. In his last five starts in Phoenix, Mediate has posted 17 rounds in the 60s (out of 20), is 67-under par and has finished 1-T2-2-T15-T28.

  • How about 50-year old Jay Haas? In his last four starts at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, Haas is 100-under par and still has not won.

  • Go low or don't go was true once again in the California desert. No less than 61 rounds of 65 or better were posted during last week's Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. Included in that number was a 60, two 62s and 12 63s.

  • With Phil Mickelson winning last week, it made the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic the first PGA TOUR ever won three consecutive years by a lefty. Mickelson won in 2002, Mike Weir last year and Mickelson again this season.

  • If you want to win this week, don't mess up the 17th hole. The 17 winners of the FBR Open (since the move to the TPC of Scottsdale) have played the short par-4 in 37-under par. In fact, the 17 winners have made exactly one bogey on the hole during that time span.

  • Gary Player's final-round 68 at the MasterCard Championship allowed him to shoot his age for the third time on the Champions Tour.

  • When Jack Nicklaus shot rounds of 68-66-67 at the MasterCard Championship, it marked the first time that he had ever posted three rounds in the 60s in a 54-hole event on the Champions Tour.

  • Hubert Green made his first competitive appearance since last June when he finished 37th at the MasterCard Championship. Green missed the last half of the 2003 season while fighting cancer.

  • It was nearly three victories in a row for Nationwide Tour alums on the PGA TOUR. Stuart Appleby and Ernie Els (both alums) won the first two TOUR events of the year and Skip Kendall nearly extended the string before losing in a playoff last week at the Bob Hope Chrysler Clasic.

  • At least one Nationwide Tour alum has finished in the Top-10 in 375 of the last 377 PGA TOUR events.
