 NOTES:
      This is the first year of the tournament and the first  of  three
 new  events  on  the  Senior Tour this season. Professional golf is no
 stranger to the San Jose area. In 1926-27, the San Jose  Open  was  in
 played  in  the area with Bell Mehlhorn capturing both events. Almaden
 Country Club hosted a PGA Tour event in the early 1960s.  Jim  Ferrier
 won  the  first  Almaden  Open in 1961 while Billy Casper won the 1964
 title and Al Geiberger won the 1965 event.  Almaden Country Club  also
 hosted  the  NIKE  San Jose Open in 1995-98. Next week the Senior Tour
 moves back to the state of Florida  for  the  Emerald  Coast  Classic,
 where Gil Morgan will defend his title.
