 NOTES:
      One stroke behind at the midway point last year, Stephen Leaney
 carded rounds of 65-68 over the weekend to cruise to a four-shot win over
 Bernhard Langer and win this event for the second time in three years. Langer,
 Mathias Gronberg and Angel Cabrera were the only players in the field to post
 all four rounds in the 60's. Gronberg and Cabrera tied for third along with
 1999 winner of this event Lee Westwood. John Huston was the low American in
 the field, tying for 33rd. This year's field includes four of the six players
 who tied for third at last week's British Open (Ernie Els, Darren Clarke,
 Miguel Angel Jimenez and Langer). This is the 9th year that Noordwijkse Golf
 Club has hosted this event. The event is one of the oldest in continental
 Europe, dating back to the inaugural event in 1919 at The Hague. Among the
 early winners were South Africa’s Bobby Locke and Argentina’s Roberto de
 Vicenzo, both major champions. More recently Seve Ballesteros (1976, 1980 and
 1986), Bernhard Langer, José Maria Olazábal and the late Payne Stewart, all
 winners of major championships, have won this prestigious title. The
 Noordwijkse Golf Club celebrates its 86th birthday this year but the course is
 significantly younger after the old nine-hole course had to give way to the
 expansion of the village of Noordwijk in 1971. The Golf Club moved several
 kilometers to the north where there was room for 18 holes and three practice
 holes. Designed by Frank Pennink with the help of sketches from club secretary
 Paul de Jong, the new layout opened in 1972 and dramatically undulates between
 high sand dunes and is distinctive by having trees on the fifth, sixth and
 seventh, the latter being a much debated dogleg left requiring a longish iron
 off the tee. Over the past 29 years Nordwijkse Golf Club has established an
 international reputation and is ranked among the top 20 courses on Continental
 Europe. This event was held at Hilversumsche Golf Club the previous six years.
 The purse was increased by 428,000 euros from last year. Next week the
 European Tour moves to Sweden for the Volvo Scandinavian Masters where Lee
 Westwood will defend his title.
