Our inaugural champion David Toms has gracefully moved into competing on the PGA TOUR Champions circuit. He made his season start last month in Hawaii and finished solo third. A year ago, that is where he made his debut on the age 50-and-over TOUR and was tied for fourth. By the end of his first year, Toms was ranked 17th on the money list with just under $1 million in earnings. Our 2003 champion plays this week at the Boca Raton Championship.
