In 28 years as a professional golfer, the Charlotte-native has 30 second place finishes, 176 top 10 finishes and 315 top 25 finishes with a total career earnings of $42,487,061. He has one major championship, the 1997 PGA Championship, and has made the cut in 516 of 674 events.

Pettersson graduated from Grimsley High School and North Carolina State University and turned pro in 2000. He is currently ranked 46th in the world and 101st on the FedEx Cup rankings with five career PGA Tour wins and a total career earnings of $ $19,797,390.

    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.
