BOTTOM LINES

September 07, 1997

ANNIKA SORENSTAM: "Now that I've had time to dissect my
performance [in missing the cut] at the U.S. Women's Open, I
have reached this conclusion: I still don't know what happened."

ROBERT FLOYD: Ray's youngest son turns pro, following in the
footsteps of Guy Boros, Gary Nicklaus, Wayne Player and Dave
Stockton Jr.

BETH DANIEL: The LPGA Hall of Fame will have to wait until '98.
She's out for the season after arthroscopic surgery on her left
shoulder.

LESSONS: Seventy-four percent of women golfers have had some.
Men? Only 46%.

CADDIES: Their future's no longer threatened by the IRS, which
has ruled that loopers aren't club employees.

PUTTING: The average Tour pro makes 50% of six-footers and less
than 10% of 30-footers.

PREDICTIONS: "The way I played this week, I wouldn't pick me
[for the Ryder Cup]. Mentally, I'm not there." So said Davis
Love III--one week before the PGA Championship.

BOBBY JONES: He and Tom Lehman are the only players to have led
after three rounds in three consecutive U.S. Opens. Jones,
however, won two of them.
