The Week Nov. 13-19

November 26, 2001

World-beaters
Ernie Els and Retief Goosen give South Africa its first World
Cup win in five years.

Fitting Finale
The center of attention all year, the Annika versus Karrie
rivalry steals the last scene.

PGA Had David Duval not been penalized two strokes for practice
putting on the 16th hole during the first round of the EMC World
Cup, he and Tiger Woods might have successfully defended their
title. Instead, Els and Goosen prevailed in a four-team playoff
that also included the U.S., Denmark (Thomas Bjorn and Soren
Hansen) and New Zealand (Michael Campbell and David Smail). In
regulation the teams shot 24-under 264s at the Taiheiyo Club in
Gotemba, Japan.... Els teamed with Wayne Westner to win the World
Cup in 1996.... Harry Taylor, 47, advanced to the final stage of
Q school for a record 19th time. Ty Tryon, 17, and Patrick
Sheehan, 32, the younger brother of Patty Sheehan, also made the
Nov. 28-Dec. 3 final at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm
Beach, Fla.

LPGA Webb held off a charge by runner-up Sorenstam to win the
Tyco/ADT Championship by two shots with a nine-under 207 at
Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.... Sorenstam
played the final 10 holes in six under to shoot 65--the week's
low score by two--and break Webb's season-scoring-average record
by .01 of a stroke, at 69.42.... The tour will have seven fewer
events (31) in 2002 than this year, and the total purse will
shrink by $2 million, to $36.8 million.

SENIOR Howard Twitty, 52, made it through the Senior Q school
for the third time in the last four years, finishing as the
medalist with a 12-under 276 at PGA of Southern California Golf
Club in Calimesa.... Larry Ziegler, at 62 the oldest golfer in
the 106-man field, came in second.... Erstwhile Tour and USGA
official David Eger earned a conditional card by coming in 14th.

ALSO With his wire-to-wire victory at Royal Queensland in
Brisbane, Robert Allenby became the first player to win
consecutive Australian PGA titles since Greg Norman, in 1984 and
'85.... Former PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman's daughter, Amy
Clark, was killed in an auto accident in Raleigh on Nov. 13. She
was 43.
