 NOTES:
      Three shots behind Colin Montgomerie after round one, Gary Orr carded
      a course-record 62 in round two and held on the rest of the way to
      defeat Per-Ulrik Johansson by two shots and win for the second time in
      2000 and in his career. Montgomerie finished alone in third, three
      shots back. Orr's total of 267 was just one shy of the tournament mark
      of 266 set in 1993 by Peter Baker. Johansson, defending champion Bob
      May and Patrik Sjoland were the only players in the field to post all
      four rounds in the 60s. May tied for fifth while Sjoland tied for
      eighth. Montgomerie has performed well at this event over the last
      eight years, posting eight consecutive top-10 finishes, winning in
      1998. During the last four British Masters, Monty has a win, two
      seconds and a third. His worst finish over the past eight years, was a
      tie for 10th in 1993. Alastair Forsyth and Roger Chapman recorded
      holes-in-one last year during the fourth round. Forsyth aced the
      second hole while Chapman made his mark at the eighth. Victor Chandler
      On Course, the United Kingdom's leading independent bookmaker, will
      continue to sponsor this event for the next three years. Greg Norman
      was the last player to win this event two straight years (1981-82).
      Playoffs have decided this event only four times in the tournament's
      history. Woburn has hosted this event 14 times in the tournament's 54-
      year history. For the first time, The Marquess Course at Woburn will
      be used for a European Tour event, having been opened for play on June
      5 last year. Designed by Peter Alliss, Clive Clark, European Golf
      Design (Ross McMurray) and Alex Hay, the course, named after the
      Marquess of Tavistock, is a joint venture between PGA European Tour
      Courses PLC and The Bedford Estate. At 7,214 yards, it lies within 200
      acres of mixed woodlands, overlapping the county boundary dividing
      Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Lofty pine, beech, spruce, sweet
      chestnut and oak trees tower above a variety of holes designed to test
      the best golfers in Europe. This tournament was held last year in mid-
      August. Next week the European Tour tees it up at the Marriott Forest
      of Arden Hotel in England, where Darren Clarke will defend his title
      at the English Open.
