August 10, 2003

Aggressive play is the key to victory at the International, which
uses a modified Stableford system that awards five points for an
eagle, two for a birdie and minus-one for a bogey. Recent winners
have all had good numbers in the Tour's birdies-per-round stat
category, including Rich Beem, who made seven birds and an eagle
on Sunday last year to win an epic duel with Steve Lowery.
