Tiger Time

IN THE BEGINNING Tiger Woods made his pro debut at the Greater
Milwaukee Open on Aug. 29, 1996. That day he shot a 67, but at
the end of the first round he trailed leader Nolan Henke by five
strokes. Woods finished the tournament at seven under par, tied
for 60th. Who won the event?

a. Mark Calcavecchia c. Jesper Parnevik
b. Jay Haas d. Loren Roberts

TIGER TAMER Woods is deadly when he has a lead. But in his rookie
season he was leading the Quad City Classic by a stroke after the
third round when he shot a 72 on Sunday to finish tied for fifth.
That is the only PGA Tour event that Woods lost after entering
the final round alone atop the leader board. Who came from behind
to win that tournament?
