Toms was terrific, Mickelson missed a major once again and Shingo the Cowboy came close to getting in the record books. Read on to get the story of the 2001 PGA Championship.

1David Toms won the tournament by one stroke over Phil Mickelson. With the victory, David qualifies for the US Ryder Cup team and gets to cash a check for $936,000 US. The turning point of the tournament for David may have been during the third round when David picked up a hole-in-one on the 266 yard 15th hole.
1By finishing second, Phil Mickleson keeps his reputation as a player who can't play under pressure or win big tournaments. Phil was tied with David Toms during the final few holes but three-putted on the 16th hole. Too bad, so sad.
1Shingo Katayama came close to becoming the first Asian born player to win the PGA Championship. He led the tournament after two rounds but dropped back on the final two days to finish five shots off the lead. Even though he didn't win, Shingo gets two thumbs up for wearing a cowboy hat for the entire tournament.
1Has Tiger Woods lost his teeth, his tail, his claws and his ability to play golf? Probably not. But the player considered to be the best in the world has now finished out of the top ten in five straight tournaments. When you win as much as he has, expectations become sky high.
1The winner of the PGA Championship receives the Rodman Wanamaker Trophy. Rodman Wanamaker founded the PGA in 1916 and donated the trophy. He was a rich department store owner who also came up with the idea of singing the national anthem before sporting events.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
