Ryan Watje has always had a thing for pigs. Breeding pigs, bottle-feeding piglets, collecting out-of-state boar semen via air mail. Watje, the mini-mogul of a 25-sow empire in Salinas, parlayed his pig mania into hard cash this year when he won a $500 International Boar Semen Scholarship. The 20-year-old pig-o-phile, who attends Modesto Junior College, was one of 55 applicants for the award, given annually by the Future Farmers of America.

Gary McCord may have won the 1999 Toshiba Senior Classic, but that doesn't mean much in 2001. McCord, who defeated Allen Doyle, John Jacobs and Al Geiberger in a playoff to win two years ago, needed a sponsor exemption to get in this year because he did not finish high enough on the money list last year to gain automatic entry. Only the top 31 finishers on the previous year's money list are fully exempt. McCord finished 33rd.
