Tour Travels to Tennessee

J.J. Henry shot 73 in the final round of last years Buy.Com Knoxville Open, yet it was good enough to give him his first career tour title.
The Knoxville victory helped Henry earn his way onto the PGA Tour, where he appears set to stay. Henry has earned over $425,000 this year and has all-but secured his playing privileges for the 2002 campaign.
This weeks Knoxville winner will try to follow in Henrys footsteps. A purse of $425,000 is up for grabs, with $76,500 going to the winner.
For the third straight year, the Fox Den Country Club (par-72, 7,142 yards) in Knoxville, Tenn., will host the event.
Last weeks winner Todd Barranger is in the field; as are 2001 money leader Tim Petrovic and Heath Slocum, who has a win and a third-place finish in his last two starts.
