| ||NOTES || |
| ||This is the season-ender for the Champions Tour and so much is yet to be
determined. In an event reserved for the top 30 on the Champions Tour money
list, Tom Lehman is the leader in the season-long race for the Charles Schwab
Cup and its $1 million annuity, which will be awarded at the end of the
championship. There are only four players with a chance to catch Lehman for
that year-long title. Mark Calcavecchia, Peter Senior, John Cook and Russ
Cochran can catch Lehman and their chances vary with Calcavecchia in second
and Cochran in fifth. Senior, Cook and Cochran need to win the Charles Schwab
Cup Championship in order to win the Charles Schwab Cup. Calcavecchia doesn`t
need to win the event to catch Lehman. Calcavecchia can win the race with a
runner-up finish and if Lehman finishes in a two-way tie for 12th or worse.
Cook may actually be in the best position to unseat Lehman, based on history.
He is the two-time defending champion, although his win in 2009 came at
Sonoma Golf Club. Lehman and Cook are three-time winners this season, while
Senior is the only player in the top five without a victory this season. All
four rounds are on Golf Channel. Champions Tour Q School is in two weeks.
