    Some mistakes in Whicker's column (not picking on Whicker, he's great):

    "Woods never has shot lower than 67 in the final round of his 12 major championship victories. He did that at the '96 PGA, when he and Bob May beat up a defenseless course, and he did it at the U.S. Open in 2000, when he played possibly the greatest 72 holes any professional ever has."

    That PGA with May was 2000, I believe (couldn't be '96, as his first major title was the '97 Masters). And the first stat is wrong, too: Woods shot a 72 in the final round of the 2002 U.S. Open, for instance. (Bump_Wills = below-par second baseman, poor reader.)

    Did you get that off the McClatchy wire? If so, those stories regularly go out unedited.

    Oh, yeah, I'm aware of that. Just providing some help (maybe).

    They said he never shot LOWER than a 67. A 72 would be higher, yes?

    Well, Bump, if he shot 72 at the 2002 Open, that isn't lower than 67, is it?

    Oh, hell, never mind on the last part. Says lower, I read higher.

    Clearly, some mistakes being made here, too.

    And it was the 2000 US Open and the 2000 PGA Championship for his two 67 final rounds.

    And the 2006 British Open.
