Bottom Lines

Since the 1983 Ryder Cup, Europe has scored 143 1/2 points and
the U.S. 136 1/2.... Colin Montgomerie was a Cup-leading 21
under par, playing all five sessions for the fifth consecutive
time. His streak of 27 consecutive matches is one off Seve
Ballesteros's record, set from 1983 to '93.... Tiger Woods was
14 under for the week, but his opponents were 16 under.... With
his victory at the Texas Open, Loren Roberts, 47, became the
oldest player to win a Tour event since Tom Watson took the 1998
Colonial at age 48.... Fred Couples's second-place finish was
his best since a victory in the '98 Memorial, 76 tournaments
ago.... Andy (son of Johnny) Miller, who won the State Farm
Open, is the fourth son of a PGA Tour winner to take a
title, joining Guy (Julius) Boros, Briny (Butch) Baird and Dave
Stockton Jr.
