Matters of the Hart


No one wishes the Buy.Com season was already over than Jeff Hart. Since winning the Steamtown Classic in June, Hart has steadily slid down the money list. Entering this week's Monterey Peninsula Classic, the former PGA Tour player is tenuously hanging on to the coveted 15th spot.
One-hundred-and-55 others will join Hart for the inaugural Monterey Classic at Bayonet Golf Club in Seaside, CA. It's one of three new events on the 2000 schedule. It's also one of only three remaining tournaments before the season-ending Tour Championship; which is open to only the top 55 players on the money list.
The top 15 players on the final official money list receive playing privileges on the 2001 PGA Tour. This week's purse is $450,000, with the winner collecting $81,000.
