Furyk still feels like it’s the tail end of 2005. He played in South Africa, went halfway around the world to the Target World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, and three weeks later it was time to start the new year. He was third at last week’s Mercedes Championships and his game hasn’t changed much. “Maybe I’m not as fresh, but my game … I was able to keep that up easily,” he said. The 2007 schedule: The absence of the Booz Allen Classic in the Washington D.C. area was among the biggest changes in the 2007 PGA Tour schedule, two days after the tour announced a new six-year TV deal. Washington has been a fixture on the PGA Tour since 1968, when Arnold Palmer won the Kemper Open. Another PGA Tour event that has been demoted include Hartford, Conn., which has been around since 1952 and traditionally was played before the football season began. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said he was in discussions with six tournaments __ the Booz Allen, Hartford, Disney, Texas Open and Southern Farm Bureau Classic – about becoming part of the post-Tour Championship schedule. The 2007 Nissan Open is scheduled for Feb. 12-18 at Riviera Country Club. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I felt really comfortable today.” This isn’t the last of Wie playing in men’s events this year. Friday, it was confirmed that she will return to Japan in November and play in the Casio World Open, where she almost made the cut and received $1.5 million in appearance money. Wie is also expected to play twice more on the PGA Tour this year, although the events have not been determined. Campbell, coming off a winless year on tour, took the last two months off and showed up in Hawaii ready to go. “I didn’t do much, started practicing a little bit the last few weeks, but didn’t really play that much at all,” said Campbell, who joined Furyk at 6-under 134. “That made it really good to come out here and be refreshed and stay patient during my round.” With a 5-foot putt on the 18th hole for her seventh birdie of the round, the 16-year-old finished with a 2-under 68 to match her record from two years ago as the lowest score by a woman competing on a male tour. Even so, she was at 7 over and missed the cut by four shots. And at the end of two days, all she could do was say to playing partner Camilo Villegas, “Play well tomorrow.” Chad Campbell and Jim Furyk each shot 3-under 67 on Friday and were tied for the lead at the Sony Open in Honolulu going into a weekend that again will not include Michelle Wie. But as always, she kept it entertaining.
