Next Up:FUNAI Classic at WDW

The Tour moves from adult's Disney World t the real thing this week at the Palm and Magnolia courses at the Walt Disney World Resort. The event has a history of making dreams come true, sucha s Lucas Glover's win last year coming from birdies on both the 17th and 18th holes on Sunday, holing out from a greenside bunker on 18. The event's purse is $4.4 million with over $800,000 going to the winner. Both courses feature long layouts, especially the Magnolia course where the final rounds will be played. With Tiger Woods rejecting his invitation to the tournament, ending the prospect of extending his lead to seven straight Tour victories this week and capturing the Vardon Trophy, the tournament will liekly draw a relatively weak field. Golf Heaven's pick for this week will be Davis Love III who ended a 92 tournament win drought at the Chrysler two weeks ago. If Love does not pull through, look for Ryder Cupper Chris DiMarco to end a winless streak of his own since winning the Pennsylvania SEI in 2001. Another player who is looking to get his game going again is young gun Sean O'Hair who won the John Deere Classic in 2005, establishing great expectations that have not yet been met. The WDW event will remain in the PGA Tour's schedule next year occupying the grand finale spot of the eight events following the closure of the FedEx Cup.
