SAL'S CORNER

The Hyundai Tournament of Champions might not be in vogue with most of the game's biggest names, but the winner of the exclusive event has traditionally capitalized on his early success. Consider that since the advent of the Tour Championship in 1987, all but three T of C winners (Mac O'Grady, 1987; Tom Kite, 1991; and Daniel Chopra, 2008) have qualified for the lucrative season-ender. Here's how the Hyundai champion has finished since the start of the FedEx Cup, in 2007.
