Congratulations to Chad campbell for his victory at the 2003 TOUR Championship! Campbell's first PGA TOUR victory also marked the first time in the history of the TOUR Championship that it has been won by a first time winner. Campbell, considered by many to be the best player to have never won on TOUR, dominated the field by finishing 1st in Total Driving, 1st in Greens in Regulation, 1st in Par 5 Scoring, 1st in Par 3 Scoring and 1st in Eagles. Campbell had an extremely impressive 2003 season finishing with three 2nd place finishes, nine Top Ten's and fifteen Top 25's, missing the cut in only two of the 27 starts he made this year. He finished the 2003 season with total winnings of $3,912,064, placing him in 7th on the PGA TOUR money list. Chad uses a Launcher 400 (8.5), TA7 irons (2-9), a 900 PW (52º), a 485 SW (56º) and a 588 LW (60º), all standard "off the rack" equipment. We know that we'll all be seeing a lot of Chad's face in the future as the search for the "NEXT big thing" starts all over again...

Congratulations are also in order for Vijay Singh, who, with his 5th place tie at the TOUR Championship, clinched first place on the 2003 PGA TOUR money list with a total of $7,573,907. In 2003, Vijay won a total of four PGA events (Phoenix Open, EDS Byron Nelson Championship, John Deere Classic & Funai Classic) and finished 2nd in five other tournaments. His 18 top-10 finshes were the most in one season, on the PGA TOUR, dating back to 1981. Throughout the entire 2003 season, Vijay missed the cut only once in 27 starts, while finishing in the top-25 an astonishing 24 times. Congratulations again Vijay on one remarkable year!
