KAPALUA, Hawaii _ Missouri Western State is not exactly a pipeline to the PGA Tour. Neither is Gallatin, Missouri, a farming community of 1,800 where Brice Garnett honed his game on a nine-hole course. Thirteen years ago, Garnett was finishing up his degree in business finance with every intention of working for a bank. “Never thought we’d be here, at Kapalua, playing the Tournament of Champions,” Garnett said. What sets him apart is not the five years he spent on the Web.com Tour, or even the three years he spent driving across Texas on the Adams Tour in a Chevrolet Equinox his parents gave him for a graduation present.
