Chip Beck appears to be on the come back trail after several years of struggling with his game and no wins in 14 years!

Chip so far in 5 events on the Champions Tour has 2 runner-up finishes, owns a 68.08 scoring average and has earned $505,467.00 dollars in these 5 events. That puts him in 35th place on the money list.

You probably won’t find a nicer guy then Chip and we’re all rooting for him to play well. Chip is also one of three players to shoot 59 on the PGA Tour PGA Tour. First was Al Geiberger, followed by Chip, and then David Duval. Annika Sorenstam is the only woman to have shot this “magic number.”

Fred Funk won this weeks Champions event by birdieing 3 of the last 4 holes and winning by a shot over Chip. Congratulations to Fred and to Chip.

Charlie Howell - Can He Win?

Howell, experiencing a tough year in which he has changed his swing and his coach, had a 4-under 68 to match Ben Curtis at 12-under 204 for the tournament. Curtis had his second consecutive 69 after starting the tournament with a 66.

Curtis, who has worn a Steelers shirt and cap for three consecutive days to fulfill an endorsement contract, kept his share of the lead by sinking a tough 9-footer for par on the par-3 17th. He had a chance to take the sole lead, but a 13-footer for birdie slipped by the left side of the hole on the par-4 18th.

Howell, who has won nearly $12 million on the PGA TOUR PGA Tour but is only No. 81 on the money list this year, picked up four strokes in three holes with the best run of the day. After consecutive bogeys on Nos. 11 and 12 dropped him to 8 under, he birdied Nos. 14 and 15 and dropped a long putt for an eagle 3 on No. 16.

“I hung in there and I have a chance to win,” said Howell, who hasn’t finished in the top 30 since a tie for second at New Orleans in April. “I’ve been through my share of swing changes, and I’ve had an iffy year.”

Curiously, Howell is contending for first TOUR victory since the 2002 Michelob Championship at a resort, Nemacolin Woodlands, where a academy is named for renowned swing coach David Leadbetter. Howell parted ways with Leadbetter before undergoing his latest swing change.

On a day when the average score was 75.984 — the highest opening round since 1986 at Shinnecock Hills — there was no fun at . Then again, no one expected it.

“This is the ,’’ said Duffy Waldorf. “If it’s fun, something’s gone wrong out there.’’
