Small hits the big time

Danville's Mike Small, a former Illini, earned his PGA Tour card Sunday at the Nike Tour Championship in Opelika, Ala.

Small shot a final-round 74 and finished with a 292, good enough to tie for 17th place and earn $3,840. That put him at No. 14 on the Nike Tour money list with $102,079. The top 15 players on the final money list earned 1998 PGA Tour exemptions.
