PGA TOUR

  • When Davis Love III wins, he often wins big. In eight of his 15 stroke-play victories, Love has won by four or more strokes. In his two victories at THE PLAYERS Championship, Love has won by four strokes and six strokes, respectively. The average margin of victory for Love in his 15 stroke-play wins is 3.47 strokes.

  • A member of the PGA TOUR since 1976, Jay Haas has enjoyed a tremendous career. This year, at age 49, Haas has claimed not just the largest payday of his career, but the two largest. He won $486,000 for his runnerup effort at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and took home a check for $572,000 this past weekend for his T2 at THE PLAYERS Championship.

  • More on Haas: One reason for his great play has been his brilliant sand play. He leads the TOUR in Sand Saves at 77.4%--getting it up and down from the beach 24 of 31 times this season.

  • Four players (Love, Ernie Els, Mike Weir and Tiger Woods) have all won multiple events this season. The 13 weeks it took to produce four multiple winners is the least amount of time for that to happen on the PGA TOUR since 1976 when Ben Crenshaw, Johnny Miller, Hale Irwin and Hubert Green all won at least twice in the first 11 weeks of the year.

  • Davis Love III's back nine of 31 in the final round at THE PLAYERS Championship is the best final-round back nine score posted by a winner since the tournament moved to the TPC at Sawgrass in 1982.

  • Chad Campbell, the 2001 Nationwide Tour Player of the Year, continues to shine in his second season on the PGA TOUR. His T6 at THE PLAYERS Championship last week was his fourth finish among the Top 6 in his last five starts.

  • Scott McCarron loves the TPC at Sugarloaf, site of this week's BellSouth Classic. In six starts at the course, McCarron has won twice and posted a fourth-place finish while making the cut in five of those outings.

CHAMPIONS TOUR

  • When Bob Gilder 3-putted the 13th hole in the second round at the Toshiba Senior Classic, it ended a streak of 238 consecutive holes without a 3-putt.

  • When Gary Koch played the PGA TOUR he was known for his putting skills. They haven't diminished with time. He leads the Champions Tour in percentage of 1-putt greens at 47.5%.

  • Gil Morgan took over the lead on the Champions Tour in earnings after the Toshiba Senior Classic for the first time since mid-April of 1998. Morgan currently has $462,000 to his credit, just ahead of Hale Irwin's $456,022.

NATIONWIDE TOUR

  • The Gallagher brothers couldn't have been more similar last week at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open. Both Jeff and Jim posted scores of 69-71--140 to miss the cut.

  • Brent Schwarzrock compiled some amazing driving stats in Louisiana. Not only did he lead the field with a 319.6-yard average, he also finished T4 in Driving Accuracy for the week at 71.2%.

  • The cut came at 6-under par at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open, only one stroke off the all-time Nationwide Tour record of 7-under set at the 1991 Dakota Dunes Open. However, in 1991, the fields were cut to the low 50 and ties. The cut is now made at the low 60 and ties.

  • The field at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open last week was made stronger by the presence of 20 former PGA TOUR champions, including past U.S. Open winner Scott Simpson. He's the fifth player to compete on the Nationwide Tour after winning a major championship. The others are Dave Stockton, Andy North, Bob Charles and Wayne Grady. Of course, Jack Nicklaus is scheduled to tee it up at the end of the month at the BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs.
