Player Notes

Captain Paul Azinger called J.B. Holmes a "bomber," and that might be the understatement of the year. This long-hitting Kentuckian currently ranks third on the PGA Tour in driving distance with a 310.4-yard average and knows Valhalla like the back of his hand. Holmes proved his mettle at the FBR Open earlier this year, where he sank a 13-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to force a playoff and then birdied it again on the first playoff hole to beat Phil Mickelson and win the event for the second time in three years. Holmes made the Taylor County (KY) High School golf team as a third-grader, was No. 1 or No. 2 man by fifth grade and won Kentucky high school title as a sophomore.
