Chris Kirk won his first PGA Tour event of his five year career in the Viking Classic in Madison, Mississippi.

The native of Knoxville, Tennessee, who ultimately went to college at the University of Georgia, scored a one-stroke win, shooting a 4-under-par 68 in the final round for a 22-under total.

Kirk beat out Tom Pernice, Jr., and George McNeill by one stroke.

The 6’3, 190-pound golfer became the fifth rookie to win on Tour this season. It’s only the second time the Tour has had that happen since 1970.

Tiger Woods gets 2011 season off to good start

Tiger Woods said a few days ago that he was ready to put the disappointing 2010 PGA Tour season behind.

If his play on Thursday is any indication, he might be the week-to-week threat he was before all of his personal issues affected his golf game.

Woods began the new season with no bogeys and no birdies on the par 5′s.

The world’s #3 golfer, had very little drama in the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, shooting a 3-under-par 60 on the North Course at Torrey Pines that kept him just five strokes behind rookie Sung-hoon Kang of South Korea.

Woods’ history in the tournament is well documented. Yesterday, he finished in the middle of the pack. In the past, four of his six wins at Torrey Pines, he has been at least five shots behind after round one.

Kang, a 24-year-old rookie, finished with back-to-back birdies on the North Course for an 8-under-par-64, giving him a one-stroke lead over Chris Kirk, Alex Prugh and Rickie Fowler.

Woods did not put well on Thursday, but he did make two important ones, longer than 3 feet; a 10-foot to save par on number 8 and a 25-foot birdie on the par-3 number 6.
