| ||Fred Funk claimed his first major championship of any kind last year when he
won the Tradition by three strokes over Mike Goodes. Funk dropped three
strokes over the final three holes, but it didn`t matter. He had posted six
birdies prior to that and was able to hold on for the win. He was battling a
variety injuries at the time of his win and battled an injured knee
throughout the off-season. Finally healthy, Funk has been hot recently as he
tied for second at the Senior British Open and is coming off his second major
championship victory at the U.S. Senior Open, where he won by six strokes.
The Champions Tour has one more major remaining with the Constellation Energy
Senior Players Championship, where D.A. Weibring won last year. The Golf
Channel has coverage of the first two days, before NBC takes over for the
final two rounds. The Champions Tour shifts to Washington next week for the
