For the most part, though, this is one of the more wide open of tournaments, which means that absolutely anything can happen after the opening tee-off.
Great Hickory Kia Classic Trivia
Did you know that Jay Haas and R.W. Eaks are the only two golfers to win more than once?
After Haas won in 2005, it took him a while to get back to the top of the leaderboard, though he did exactly that in 2009. In the meantime, it was Eaks who took down a couple of tournaments, and at one point Haas and Eaks had won four out of five titles at the Great Hickory Kia Classic (then called the Greater History Classic at Rock Barn).
