Texas golf great Tom Kite will be teeing it up this weekend at the Champions Tour Administaff Small Business Classic at Augusta Pines in Houston. The next week he'll be at the AT&T Championship at Oak Hills in San Antonio. Maybe one of these two tournaments will be the one that allows him to finally get off the 0-for-Texas schneid.
You see, Tom Kite has never won a professional tournament in Texas. He's played 103 pro events in the state, but none of his 19 PGA Tour victories or 9 Champions Tour wins have come in Texas.
This nugget is found in the Houston Chronicle's weekly golf notebook, which this week advances the Champions Tour event there.
