A wagering man looking for a good bet to win this week's GTE Byron Nelson Classic in Irving, Texas, would be wise to put his money on one of the players whose 1998 numbers are listed below. Woods, the defending champion, will be teeing it up along with all four of the Tour's other under-30 stars for only the fourth time this season. On the other occasions, Phil Mickelson won the Mercedes, Justin Leonard took the Players, and David Duval should have won the Masters. "They're going to start a Junior tour for all the guys under 30," says Paul Azinger. "That way the rest of us have a chance."
