With weather conditions unlike that of the previous eight NGA/Hooters Tour tournaments here, "it should be an interesting week," according to 2008 Buffalo Run Casino Classic winner Jeff Corr.
"My caddie and I were talking about that," Corr said. "The last couple of years I have been out here in June and July, usually you play in the morning, you sweat, there is a rain delay on one of the days, but this year the forecast should be pretty good."
The tour's player of the year title could be decided here.
While Brandon Brown is ahead of Corr in the money standings, Corr has an insurmountable lead in points, 5,622 to 4,955.
"I had a deficit going into the last two tournaments and had two good top-five finishes, so I have to make up about $10,000 this week. That is my goal.
"It is within reach, but we will see what happens."
Corr, who had briefly worked in sales after graduation from college before deciding to fulfill his dream as a professional golfer ("I just got tired of being a number"), admits that '11 has been his most consistent year since turning pro in 2006.
He's missed the cut just twice in 19 starts and has 12 top 10 finishes.
Corr posted back-to-back wins at the Victoria Texas Open and the Heart of North Carolina Classic.
What makes it more impressive is the fact that after the Texas win, the tour took a three week break before starting back up in North Carolina.
In addition to the two wins, he's had a T2, a third, a T3, a fourth, a T4, two T5s, a T7, a T8 and a T10.
His third came two weeks ago in the Woodcreek Classic.
"Yeah, hands down it is," he said. "This is my best year as far as golfing. Confidence is lot out here. I am putting it well and I am hitting it where I can find it.
"I know where its going."
Surprisingly, the only serious practice he does while on the road is on the putting green.
"I do a little bit on the golf course like during the practice rounds," said Corr. "I know where all the pins are at and I know where you don't want to hit it."
He's using the same range book that he used when winning in 2008.
"I just put a few notes in there, but they're not anything to preach about," Corr said.
