FAME: There will be no additions to the World Golf Hall of
Fame this year. Lloyd Mangrum and Greg Norman came the closest
to being elected.
This is an article from the Feb. 2, 1998 issue
FLUFF COWAN: "I took this job [as Tiger Woods's caddie] to
witness history." We hear the pay isn't too bad, either.
LARRY NELSON: At 100th in the World Ranking, he's the only
Senior tour player among the top 100.
DAVIS LOVE: "We felt like 10 years was too long a time." Love, a
member of the PGA Tour policy board, on its decision to reduce
the exemption given the winner of a major from 10 years to five,
starting this season. Love won his first major last season.
JACK NICKLAUS: Jack's...not back. The USGA won't give him an
exemption to the U.S. Open this year, which will end his streak
of playing in majors at 145.
STREAKS: Only two players have made five birdies in a row to win
a PGA Tour event: Woods, and that guy who won't be playing in
the Open this year.
NO VACANCY: Want a hotel room for the '99 Ryder Cup in Boston?
Good luck. The PGA has reserved almost half the available
lodging for that week.
