BOTTOM LINES

GRAND SLAM: Forget about it. A different player has won each
of the last 12 majors.

JUSTIN LEONARD: The secret to his success? It's not ball
striking. (He's 142nd in total driving and 124th in greens in
regulation.) No, it's his work on the greens: He ranks 17th in
putting.

BIG THREE: Tiger Woods, Ernie Els and Justin Leonard? Maybe, but
in one poll 76% of the respondents think Leonard is a one-hit
wonder.

JERRY HEARD: An ad for the Senior tour players' newsletter says,
"After years of intense research and experimentation, I have
finally developed a golf swing that I believe...produces the
longest and most accurate driver, wood and iron hits. We have
named this swing the Heard Super Swing." Heard opened with an 85
at the Franklin Quest Championship.

JOHNNY MILLER: "If I can get my [short] game where it should be,
I should be quite successful. It's not like I can't beat Hale
Irwin if I'm on."

JESPER PARNEVIK: On when he knew Darren Clarke wouldn't be a
factor in the final round of the British Open: "When he shanked
on number 2."
