the PGA TOUR’s Player of the Year in player voting at the end of the season. Runner-up Justin Leonard finished with eight


pars for a 71. He kept alive his impressive record of never finishing out of the top 125 on the money list since joining the PGA TOUR in 1994. In the scramble to end the season inside


the top 125 on the money list and maintain fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR in 2012, 52-year-old Tom Pernice tied for third place and finished 121st on the money list. D.J. Trahan holed a 22-foot birdie putt on his last hole to finish at No. 125 on the money list by $1,431 over Bobby Gates, who missed a six-footer on his final hole. “I don’t know what par


would have done,” Trahan said. “I really, honestly don’t know what difference that


Course Insight 125 would


have made, but birdie certainly didn’t hurt me. So I’m thrilled that I made that putt.” ■

Magnolia Course at the Walt Disney World Resort


Golf course architect Joe Lee did some of his best work in Florida, and the Magnolia Course at the Walt Disney World Resort is usually mentioned as one of his finest designs in the state and certainly the best at the resort, since he made it a good test for the top players while being fun for guests.


Lee made good use of bunkering and water


hazards, the best case being the 14th hole with its 10 bunkers filled with two acres of sand. The course also has more than 1,500 magnolia trees, elevated tees and greens, and water on 12 of the 18 holes. The par-3 sixth hole has a bunker shaped like Mickey Mouse’s silhouette. The resort’s other courses include Tom Fazio’s
