This week, 56-year-old Fred Funk makes his Web.com Tour debut at his hometown event, the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters. Not only is he seeking his second win at TPC Sawgrass – he won the 2005 PLAYERS Championship on the Stadium Course; this week’s event is on Dye’s Valley Course – he’s also seeking to join a small group of players who have won events on all three Tours.
Funk has eight wins on the PGA TOUR and also eight wins on the Champions Tour, including last week’s Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn. If he wins this week, he’ll become the seventh member of the Triple Tour Club.
