Gentlemen, Heft Your Drivers
In his 17 years as a pro, Vijay Singh has won two Buick Classics, a Buick Open, two Volvos—the Open di Firenze and the German Open—and a Toyota World Match Play Championship. That's why he can afford to drive a Range Rover. After winning the 1997 Buick Open (above), Singh narrowly missed at the Honda Classic this year, but he has earned $743,853 in '98 and merits the pole position at the Buick Open. With many big wheels bypassing Warwick Hills to tune up for next week's PGA, Singh has a souped-up import from the Japanese tour to contend with: Brian Watts, playing on a sponsor's exemption after his British Open heroics. Late entry Tiger Woods is no jalopy either.

Bonus Compounds Interest in Star Bank
Star Bank officials felt shortchanged last week when the supremely bankable Se Ri Pak made an untimely withdrawal. Still, their tournament has something in reserve—a $100,000 bonus for the winner. The fine print: She must have won at least once before in '98. That puts Donna Andrews, Brandie Burton, Dale Eggeling, Tammie Green, Pat Hurst, Rosie Jones and Lisa Walters in line for the dividend, but leaves Colleen Walker locked out. The defending champ is win-less this year after banking the bonus last summer.
