Who Wants It the Most


Last week, Larry Nelson made a monetary move on Bruce Fleisher and Hale Irwin by winning the $195,000 first-place check at the FleetBoston Classic. This week, he'll have another golden opportunity to make up some ground at the Foremost Insurance Championship.
Nelson is among the 78 players battling at Egypt Valley CC in Ada, Mich., for the $165,000 winner's prize. Fleisher and Irwin are not.
Currently, Nelson stands third on the 2000 money list. At $1,773,355, he trails Irwin by $51,993 and Fleisher by $229,551. A fifth place finish or better this week will vault the 3-time 2000 victor into second place in seasonal earnings.
Others in the field this week includes: Allen Doyle, Gary McCord, Andy North, Gary Player and Lanny Wadkins.
