This week: Nationwide Tour’s Fort Wayne Gretzky
Classic, Thursday through Sunday, The Georgian Bay Club and Raven Golf
Club in Ontario, Canada.

World ranking: 544th.

2008 earnings: $45,028 (63rd on the Nationwide Tour).

Last tournament: The Tacoma native broke a string
of four missed cuts by going the distance at last week’s Knoxville Open
(3-under 285), finishing 59th and earning $1,550. This week, he is the
CEO of “Team Putnam,” paired with a semi-celebrity in Canada in the
debut event for ex-NHL star Wayne Gretzky, who is no doubt the
headliner athlete this week. Most of the celebrities are former and
current hockey players, but others include ex-Denver Broncos
quarterback John Elway, Buffalo Bills starting QB Trent Edwards, and
actors Kevin Dillon (“Entourage”) and Alan Thicke (“Growing Pains”).

Tee time Thursday: 4 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee of The Georgian Bay with Jason Schultz.
