And Then There Was One


Its now or never for many in the field in this weeks Southern Farm Bureau Classic in Madison, Miss.
While the PGA Tours elite pad their pockets in the $5 Million Tour Championship, a host of others are trying to gain their playing privileges for next season.
The Southern Farm Bureau is the final official event on the PGA Tour schedule; the last tournament for players to finish inside the top 125 on the money list.

Last year, Steve Lowery rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt from the fringe to beat Skip Kendall on the first hole of sudden death. Lowery forced the playoff by birdieing the par-5 18th, while Kendall made par. It was his first victory since the 1994 International.
The week was also especially sweet for Pete Jordan, who tied for fourth. Jordan shot a final-round 64 to retain his tour card. He entered the tournament 126th on the money list, but jumped to No. 107 with his impressive finish.
This weeks purse is $2.4 million, with $432,000 going to the winner. There is a $9,257 difference between Bradley Hughes, No. 125 on the money list, and Brandt Jobe, No. 126.
Nos. 122-136 in earnings are in attendance this week, with the exception of Fred Couples. Couples is exempt through the 2006 season due to his 1996 Players Championship victory.
