The Week Sept. 5-11


Fall Guy
The only downside to rooting for Tiger: We have to wait five
weeks before he tees it up again.

She's a Loch
Michele Redman's win in the Betsy King Classic makes her a sure
thing for the Solheim Cup.

Big Wheel
It stands to reason. Gil Morgan, his tour's top driver, wins for
the second straight year at Indy.

Gato Love It
At the European Masters, Eduardo (the Cat) Romero, 46, shows he
still has plenty of bite.

PGA When Lee Trevino won the U.S., British and Canadian Opens in
1971, he was a combined 15 under and his average lead at the end
of regulation was a third of a stroke. Woods, the only other
player to win all three in a season, was 53 under and won by an
average of eight shots.... Tiger's next appearance will be in the
Oct. 19-22 Presidents Cup.... This week's SEI Pennsylvania
Classic outside Philadelphia will be the first Tour event in the
state in 20 years.... At $6 million the purse for the Players
Championship will be the largest on Tour in '01.

LPGA With her three-shot victory over Jean Bartholomew and Meg
Mallon in Kutztown, Pa., Redman jumped from 14th to eighth in
the U.S. standings for the Oct. 6-8 Solheim Cup at Loch Lomand,
near Glasgow, Scotland. The top 10 after next week's Safeway
LPGA Championship earn automatic berths.... Six Swedes are on
the European team, the same as in '98.

SENIOR Morgan's win in the Comfort Classic at the Brickyard
Crossing course on the grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
was his third of the season.... Dale Douglass, the honorary
chairman of the Colorado Senior Open, was DQ'd from the event for
breaking a Colorado Golf Association rule that prohibits metal

ALSO Romero, an Argentine with 85 victories on the South
American tour, shot a 23-under 261 to finish 10 strokes ahead of
runner-up Thomas Bjorn of Denmark.... The ground shook during the
trophy presentation at the Taiwan Open in Taipei, not because
Vijay Singh had won for the first time since the Masters but
because of an earthquake 110 miles to the south that measured 6.2
on the Richter scale.
