NOTES
Jeff Sluman goes for a third consecutive win at this championship this week. Sluman has one other Champions Tour victory besides the two at Pebble Beach, and he hasn`t enjoyed the greatest season in tour history. He has five top 10s in 2010, but two of them came in his last two starts. Sluman aced the fifth hole and shot a four-under 68. He was the only player under par in the final three groups on Sunday, as the winds hit the California coast. The last six players on the course last year (Sluman, Mark McNulty, Tom Lehman, Bob Gilder, Loren Roberts and Mark O`Meara) combined to shoot 14-over par on Sunday. Play rotates over the two courses for the first two rounds, then Pebble Beach hosts on Sunday. Golfers compete with junior players and amateurs, with the top 22 juniors and top 10 amateur teams advancing to the final round. Sluman and the other players in the field might have a fighting chance this week. Bernhard Langer, who collected his fifth Champions Tour title of the year on Sunday at the Boeing Classic, is not in the field. Those final six players on the course last year are all in the field this year, with the exception of McNulty. Fred Couples is scheduled to be on hand to see if he can get back into the winner`s circle. Couples hasn`t won since the Cap Cana Championship in late March. Golf Channel will carry all three rounds. Next week is the Songdo Championship, which is a new event on the Champions Tour.
