Reinforcements Needed To Shore Up PGA Tour's Opening Pro-Am...

Arguably the most interesting thing about this year's lightly anticipated Hyundai Championship: changes in gear. Doug Ferguson reports on Nick Watney's full move to Nike, a bold change for such an elite player. Then again, like Rory says, it's all coming from the same factory!

Rex Hoggard has some of the other comings and goings, including two defections from Nike in Cink and Glover.

Also in Ferguson's notes column is more sign of (A) KJ's class and (B) the demise of the tournament of champions that figures to only be further strained when the "calendar year" schedule kicks in this fall.

K.J. Choi offered to fly to Maui to take part in the Tournament of Champions pro-am because a few extra players were required to fill out the 30-man field. Korean-based Hyundai is the tournament sponsor. Jerry Kelly also is playing in the pro-am. He flew in from Wisconsin, and that much was clear Monday when he unzipped his golf bag and removed hand warmers.
