PERNICE WAS EYEING HISTORY Pernice was trying to become the second- oldest winner in PGA TOUR history and the first over-50 player to win since Fred Funk in 2007. The amazing Sam Snead was 52 when he won the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open. Pernice began the day two strokes back and shot a third-straight 67 to stay in the hunt. He played a fine approach on the home hole to within 10 feet but, like McNeill, he missed his chance to tie with Kirk. “I just needed to make a good firm


stroke, maybe just outside the right edge and all that good stuff,” Pernice said. “But it looked like I pulled it. The young guys are getting bigger and stronger and they’re able to compete right away.” ■


7 With his victory,


Chris Kirk became the seventh player to make the True South Classic


his first win. The others are: D.J. Trahan (2006), Luke Donald


(2002), Cameron Beckman (2001),


Willie Wood (1996), Ed Dougherty


(1995) and Brian Henninger (1994).


How Was It Won? Chris Kirk won the True South Classic with a


display of solid all-around play. ■ He tied for 43rd in Driving Accuracy (36 of 56). ■ He tied for 12th in Greens in Regulation (57 of 72).


■ He tied for 29th in Driving Distance (292.0). ■ He tied for 12th in Total Putts (109).

The Jack Nicklaus design is believed to be the first course in Mississippi to have greens that are seeded with bentgrass. Until that time, the belief was that the extreme heat and humidity of a Mississippi summer required bermudagrass greens in order to survive. In 1984, the PGA TOUR moved the Deposit Guaranty Golf Classic to Annandale from the Hattiesburg Country Club, where it had been played since the tournament began in 1968. Annandale’s signature hole is the 409-yard, par-4 17th. A stream runs through the hole, giving players a choice of either playing cautiously by driving to the left of the hazard and having a mid-iron approach to the green, or driving to the right of the stream, which is protected by more water but leaves a short iron approach.
