  • 10/1/00 --Michael Campbell claimed his third European Tour title of the season without hitting a single shot on Sunday. Campbell won the Linde German Masters when the final round was cancelled due to rain.

  • 10/1/00 -- David Duval didn't make the trip to Pine Mountain, Ga. just to compete. He came to Callaway Gardens Resort to win. And he did just that.

  • 9/28/00 -- Jeff Maggert won more money in a single event last season than he has in 22 starts this year. Not to say Maggert's had a dismal 2000; he's earned five top 10s and nearly $850K in cash.

  • 9/27/00 -- All of Europe's top names are in Cologne, Germany for this week's Linde German Masters. All except Darren Clarke.
