Exciting “Two-fer”
 
There are two golf contests that will be happening this week that offers $10.5 million worth of prize money and these are the World Golf American Express Championships event in Hertfordshire, England and the 38th Southern Farm Bureau Classic event in Madison, Mississippi steeped in tradition.

Tiger Woods will be going for his sixth straight PGA Tour victory, which would in turn equal his personal best that straddled during the 1999-2000 seasons. His current streak and fifth best all-time, already includes two majors and a World Golf Championships title and winnings of $5.1 million. He’ll add $1.375 million from the grand $7.5 million purse if he can win his fifth American Express title. He’s the current defending champion. Where he has 11 winnings and 19 top 10 finishes in 21 World Golf Championships.

Meanwhile in Mississippi, there are two defending champions. The Heath Slocum won the 2005 edition opposite THE TOUR Championship. Fred Funk will compete  in the field this year and gets a pass from the TOUR Insider since he wasn’t able to compete last year.
 
Last year’s Southern Farm Bureau Classic competition, Heath Slocum fired a closing 6-under-par 66, and his 21 under 267 was good for a two-stroke victory over Loren Roberts and Carl Pettersson.

Also, during the last year’s American Express Championship, Tiger Woods outlasted John Daly in a playoff at Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco to win his fifth title of the season and his 10th WGC title.
