NOTES
The PGA Tour shifts to California this week for the lone five-round tournament on the schedule, the Bob Hope Classic. Bill Haas carded five rounds in the 60s last year, including a closing eight-under 64 on the Palmer Course at PGA West, to earn a one-stroke win. It was his first tour victory in 141 career starts. He followed his father into the winner`s circle at this event, making them the eighth father-son duo to win on the PGA Tour. Jay Haas claimed the Hope in 1988. Bill Haas will look to join Johnny Miller as the only back-to-back winners of the Hope. Twelve former winners have posted top-10 finishes in their title defense, but that has happened just five times in the last 33 years. Four U.S. Ryder Cuppers from last year are scheduled to compete this week - Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, Jeff Overton and Stewart Cink. The tour is coming off a 36-hole Sunday at the Sony Open in Hawaii and this tournament had its own weather issues last year. Thursday`s action was rained out and pushed the final round to Monday. With the professionals being joined by amateurs, the event is spread over four courses during the first four rounds. The final round will again be contested on the Palmer Course at PGA West. Among the celebrities competing this week are - musician Alice Cooper, actors Kurt Russell, Craig T. Nelson, Kevin Nealon, John O`Hurley, and former athletes including 355-game winner Greg Maddux as well as former National Football League and Major League Baseball star Bo Jackson. Golf Channel has coverage of all five rounds. Coverage runs from 3-6 p.m. (et) the first three days, while Saturday and Sunday`s coverage goes from 4-7 p.m. The tour remains in California next week for the Farmers Insurance Open, where Ben Crane was a one-stroke winner last year.
