Countdown to Cox Classic

This week’s News-Sentinel Open in Knoxville, Tenn., is the last Tour event before next week’s Cox Classic at Champions Run.

Purse: $550,000, $99,000 to the champion. 2012 champion: Darron Stiles (on 2013 PGA Tour). TV: none.

Last week: Andrew Svoboda fired an 8-under 64 in Sunday’s final round to win the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Mo., for his first Tour victory.

Friesen watch: After not making a cut since May, ex-Husker Steve Friesen tied for 55th in Springfield to remain alive for inclusion in the Cox Classic — which is restricted to the 156 players highest on the season money list.

Friesen is No. 175 with $10,783. No. 156 is Vaughn Taylor with $15,600.
