With this win Crane becomes the first ever two-time winner of lame duck events in the same year. And just think, the notoriously shy former British Open Champion won't have to do two media days next year. Take that Tiger!
*too many hours in the hot So Cal sun today made me type this incorrectly. Really.
Ouch, Mike Dudurich in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette wrote this on the eve of Sunday's final round:
Curtis, the 2003 British Open champion, hadn't won until the Booz Allen Classic in Washington in June. If he prevails in the birdie fest today, it has been suggested that he will have completed the Tim Finchem Slam, winning two tournaments in the same year that won't exist in 2007.
In Finchem's defense, he did try and give the 84 Lumber a better date, only to be rebuffed by the company.
