The British Open

David Duval proved he can win when it counts and Ian Woosnam went "ballistic" after finding out his caddie needs to go back to math class. Here's a look at the highs and lows of the 2001 British Open.

High - David Duval finally won a major tournament after coming so close in the past - only to choke in the final few holes. There was no choking for David in 2001. He went 10 under par for the tournament to win by three strokes over Niclas Fasth of Sweden.
Low - Tiger Woods got lost in the woods, the weeds, the water and just about everywhere else at the 2001 Open. He fired an ugly triple bogey during the final round and finished nine shots behind Duval. It was Tiger's worst showing at a major tournament in four years.

High - It was beginners luck for Frank Lickliter. In the second round, Frank licked the fifth hole with a 212 yard hole-in-one. This was Frank's first time ever playing in the British Open.
Low - Ian Woosnam will be sending his caddie back to school to take Introduction to Counting. Myles Byrne miscounted and put 16 clubs into Ian's bag. You're only allowed to have 15 so Ian was given a two stroke penalty. "At that moment, I felt like I'd been kicked in the teeth. Myles feels as sick as a parrot. It's the biggest mistake he'll make in his life. He won't do it again. He's a good caddie. He will have a severe bollocking when I get in, but I am not going to sack him," said Ian. Myles is lucky - he certainly wouldn't have much chance finding a job as a math teacher.

High - For winning the British Open, David Duval won nearly $900,000 and the silver claret jug. The jug has been given out as a prize for more than 130 years.
Low - The 2001 British Open was played at the Royal Lytham St. Annes golf course in England. Besides golf, Lytham St. Annes is famous for a lifeboating accident in 1886 where 27 people drowned when their lifeboats overturned off the coast of Lytham St. Annes. Tiger Woods could have used a lifeboat several times during the Open when he and his ball could be seen floundering helplessly in water.
