San Francisco, CA
Tom Lehman was Player of the Year on the old Ben Hogan Tour in 1991.
He was PGA Tour Player of the Year in 1996.
He can make history and play his way to Player of the Year honors on the Champions Tour with a solid showing at this week's season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championships at TPC Harding Park.
No player has ever won the honors on all three of the PGA Tour's circuits.
The Hogan Tour was the predecessor of what is today the Nationwide Tour.
Lehman has led the points race for the Charles Schwab Cup the entire season. He's 382 ahead of second place Mark Calcavecchia going into this week. Lehman's had three wins, including a major, Calcavecchia has won only once.
Both have been marvelously consistent. Calcavecchia leads the senior circuit with a 69.02 scoring average while Lehman is right behind him at 69.07.
Depending on Lehman's play this week, Calcavecchia, Peter Senior, John Cook and Russ Cochran can mathematically win the Charles Schwab Cup.
One man who cannot but may be the favorite to win the tournament come Sunday is Fred Couples. Couples has won in two of his last five starts including the last Champions Tour event, the AT&T.
Lehman will face a solid field on a challenging, historic layout at Harding Park.
"It is an excellent course for the season-ending championship," Lehman said.
