Funk’s victory last year was set up with a majestic shot -- a 5-iron from 174 yards over water - on the final hole which finished within a foot of the flagstick. He tapped in for a 1-shot victory over Tom Lehman.
“One of the best shots I ever hit,” said Funk, who birdied four of the final five holes to close with 67.
Another highlight of the week for Funk was that his 16-year-old son, Taylor, was on the bag.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Insperity Championship, the eighth of 26 official tournaments on the 2013 Champions Tour schedule. The Woodlands is a 7,018-yard, par 72 layout designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert von Hagge.
Bernhard Langer, the 2011 Charles Schwab Cup winner, leads the race through April with 928 points. David Frost is second with 676 points, followed by Tom Pernice, Jr., with 488 points. Langer is the only two-time winner (ACE Group Classic, Greater Gwinnett Championship) on tour this year.
