ernhard Langer counted on his short game to bail him out of trouble early


and shot a final-round 67 to win the inaugural Greater Gwinnett Championship by three strokes. He had six birdies en route to his fifth top-three finish in six events. “I’ve had very good starts before but


this is exceptional so far,” Langer said. Langer


recovered from a mediocre


1-over-par 73 on Friday before coming back with a 66 on Saturday. “It’s just gratifying to see all the hard


work pay off because sometimes you work hard and it doesn’t pay off,” Langer said. “Lately it’s been the more I practice, the better I get.” Langer credited his short game for his win. “My shor t game got me through,”


Langer said. “I missed three greens and I was 1-under-par. That was pretty cool and it kept me in the lead.” ■


TPC SUGARLOAF TPC Sugarloaf’s par-72, 7,131-yard championship golf course is comprised of nine holes called “The Stables” and nine holes named “The Meadows.” “I remember the TPC Sugarloaf being


a very, very good golf course,” said Brad Faxon. “Greg Norman designs golf courses that can be difficult. I thought it was an amazingly good driving course. The greens were always in fantastic shape and some of the fastest that we played on. I don’t think we had a tremendous amount of rough there so I think it’s a great site for us.”

Course Insight THE CLUB AT SAVANNAH HARBOR


two- every


round is expected to be a scramble to see which team can go lowest the fastest. But last year Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman won at The Club at Savannah Harbor with a final-round, 7-under 65 and 23-under total, the highest figures seen in years. “I don’t know,


I’m not so good at I’ve been here enough to


know that this is a very strange wind,” said Sluman. “Today it shifted again from a little bit of a different direction and the pin placements were tough and the greens were very firm.” Coming down the closing holes on


Sunday, Sluman and Faxon had to make do with pars—and somehow it worked. “I don’t


think anyone would have thought four pars would have won the tournament,” Faxon said. ■


During his long and remarkable competitive career, Sam Snead did a little golf course design work (not many players did in that era), most notably teaming with Robert Trent Jones on some courses. When this tournament moved to Savannah in 2003, it was to a Snead collaboration, this time with Bob Cupp. The opening nine plays out along the Black River, while the inward nine plays through marshes and offers scenic views of Savannah from many of the holes.
