One-Trick Gorilla: While Tiger Woods played conservatively off the tees at Sahalee all week, John Daly whaled away with his driver and missed the cut by a mile. "He had no chance," said playing partner Wayne Grady, while Al Geiberger called Daly's runaway-truck approach "a reckless game."
Age Before Beauty: Dave Stockton (below) wants to see more emphasis on players over 60 years old at Senior events. "We have a great tour, but we need to tweak it some," says Stockton, 56. "Let's put the lowest three guys over 60 together in the last round and see who wins. These are great names, and we should let fans in on how hard they play" Stockton, who finished seventh behind winner George Archer at last week's First of America Classic in Ada, Mich., also suggests a season-ending tournament for the 60-plus set.
Hip Check: Jack Nicklaus, take note-Archer won the First of America with two artificial hips. "The old horse went out there today and good things happened," Archer said.
Musical Chairs: In 1991 Daly, the ninth alternate, slipped into the PGA Championship and won the Wanamaker Trophy. This year David Ogrin, the 11th alternate, got in. Here's how: Jim Carter replaced Darren Clarke, who returned to Ireland to join his wife and new baby; Clark Dennis filled in for Bruce Lietzke, sidelined by a hernia; Robert Damron subbed for sore-armed Mark McNulty; Neal Lancaster filled a vacancy created when qualifier Billy Mayfair claimed the spot reserved for the Buick Open winner; fifth alternate Stephen Ames of Trinidad couldn't get into the U.S.; Mark Wiebe replaced Frankie Minoza, who has an ailing back; Rocco Mediate replaced sore-necked Bernhard Langer; PH. Horgan replaced Michael Bradley, who withdrew with a bad back; Billy Andrade got Steve Jones's spot when Jones withdrew after a friend's death; and 10th alternate Brett Quigley reportedly missed his flight to Seattle, leaving Ogrin to replace Dan Forsman, who came down with kidney stones. On arrival at Sahalee, Ogrin—who would finish 44th—spotted 12th-alternate Rick Fehr and said, "Sorry, Rick, I'm here."
