((Chip Sullivan spent 1997 as a card carrying member of the PGA Tour teeing it up alongside the top players in the world. Sullivan is back on Tour this week, having qualified to play in his 3rd Capital Open. The Ashley Plantation Pro hopes three's a charm at Avenel. He hasn't made the cut in his two previous appearances.
Chip:
Sullivan will try to hit those fairways with new sticks he is debuting this week. He recently traded in his Callaways for Cleveland irons.
Chip:
Travis: While Sullivan is no stranger to Tour Events, Blackstone, Virginia native Cameron Yancey is getting used to being called a rookie. In December, the former Virginia Cavalier became the first Uva golfer to gain fully exempt status on the PGA Tour.
Cameron:
Yancey is a Scott Robertson tourney alum, who may have gone to school in Charlottesville, but he has a Hokie connection on his bag in caddie J.J. James.
Cameron:
The 24 year old Yancey has made just three cuts in seven events this season. In Potomac, Maryland, Travis Wells, News 7 Sports.))
