Keys to the Kingdom


Though many people dream of winning the lottery, the odds of actually winning it are pretty long ' one chance in the 10s of millions.
But how inspiring would the odds be if it were a mere 55-1? Throw in the fact that its not just a random drawing ' that you'd actually have some say in the outcome. And imagine if you were to win, not only will riches surely follow, but also, you would finally see your dreams and aspirations come to fruition.
Sound like something youd be up for? Now also throw in the mix that all this takes place on a beautiful golf course AND youve got serious game!
Well, unfortunately for you, they dont sell these kinds of tickets at your corner 7-11 (could you imagine the line out the door!), but for 55 Buy.Com Tour players, that is the situation theyre in at this weekends season-ending Tour Championship.
Last week's winner David Morland IV needed every bit of the first-place check as he vaulted all the way from 199th to 54th on the money list and into the Tour Championship.
Being played at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capital Hill in Prattville, Ala., the $108,000 first place check will almost assuredly get a player a place in the top-15 on the tours all-important season-ending money list.
It is these 15 players that will be granted membership to the PGA Tour for the 2003 season.
In other words, the keys to the kingdom. And at 55 to 1, who wouldnt love those odds?
