Disney World Hosts Fall Series Finale - COPIED

RSS

 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - For the final stop in its 2007 schedule, the PGA TOUR is going to Disney World.
 
Formerly the FUNAI Classic at Walt Disney, the newly-named Children's Miracle Network Classic is the last of seven events that make up the TOUR's Fall Series, a time of year when the fields are normally light on stars and heavy with players trying to make enough money to keep their status for next season.
 
It is the last chance for players to earn exempt status for the 2008 FedExCup or improve their positions on the money list and in the world rankings to ensure positions in major championships, invitationals and World Golf Championships events next season.
 
The first two rounds will feature one professional and one amateur team each day. The amateurs will play with a different professional in the second round, but they will not play on the weekend.
 
Last year, Joe Durant carded three straight rounds of 65 or better to win by four shots over Frank Lickliter and Troy Matteson. It was his fourth PGA TOUR win and first since 2001, and it helped him crack the top 15 on the 2006 money list.
 
Durant will be looking to become the sixth player to win this tournament more than once, a list that includes Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.
 
The field will also get a jolt from 16-year-old Tadd Fujikawa, who was became the youngest player ever to qualify for the U.S. Open when he made the field at Winged Foot in 2006.
 
The GOLF CHANNEL will have coverage of all four rounds.
 
The remaining PGA TOUR schedule this year includes events like the World Cup, the LG Skins Game, Q- school, the Merrill Lynch Shootout and the Target World Challenge -- the so-called 'Silly Season' by some.
