Arnie and Other Big Names Prep for Hyundai


Stars from the PGA, Senior PGA and LPGA Tours convene this week at the Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point, Calif., for the annual playing of the $1.2 million Hyundai Team Matches.
The format of the event pits four two-man teams from each tour against one another via two days of match play. The two winners from each division on Saturday advance into Sundays finals, with the ultimate winners from each tour splitting the total purse equally.
Last year, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson took the Senior division, while Dottie Pepper and Juli Inkster won on the LPGA side. Duffy Waldorf and Tom Lehman took honors for the PGA Tour.
While Nicklaus recently pulled out of the event due to an ailing back, the 18-time major champion will be replaced by Andy North.
The scheduled divisions and teams are as follows:
PGA Tour:
Tom Lehman / Duffy Waldorf
Fred Couples / Mark Calcavecchia
David Toms / Steve Flesch
Joe Durant / Skip Kendall
Senior PGA Tour:
Andy North / Tom Watson
Bruce Fleisher / Arnold Palmer
Allen Doyle / Dana Quigley
Gary McCord / Tom Kite
LPGA Tour:
Dottie Pepper / Juli Inkster
Janice Moodie / Wendy Ward
Karrie Webb / Kelly Robbins
Lorie Kane / Grace Park
