Chunky Lumpy's Bumpy Ride
Tim Herron, the 1996 Honda Classic champion, got his second Tour title at last year's LaCantera Texas Open. The 28-year-old pro known as Lumpy has taken his lumps this season, going winless and dropping from 33rd to 51st on the money list. Still, a repeat victory in San Antonio, over a field that includes Justin Leonard and U.S. Amateur champ Hank Kuehne—playing on a sponsor's exemption—would give Herron his third win in three years and a shot at playing in his first Tour Championship, the season-ending bash to which only the top 30 money winners are invited.

More Reign Forecast For Sorenstam
With apologies to CBS's The King of Queens, Annika Sorenstam (above), with two wins in the Betsy King Classic's two years of existence, is the queen of Kings. As for the event's eponymous Hall of Famer, King missed the cut here in '96 but joined Sorenstam in the final pairing last fall and tied for third. This year the King boasts a new title sponsor, First Union Bank, and a fatter purse of $650,000, up $50,000 from a year ago. Both Sorenstam and Se Ri Pak are shooting for their fifth victory of the season.
