He has one major championship, the 1997 PGA Championship, and has made the cut in 516 of 674 events.

    What about Webb Simpson? I'll bet he plays too. I saw Davis Love play this one several times after he hit the tour. I'm happy to see Pettersson play in this one too. The article writer stopped short in listing several, IMO.

    Don't be too surprised if Tim Clark joins the field, and I am sure that Duke will have a contingent of their own. Guys like Kevin Streelman and Joe Ogilvie are former Blue Devils.
