 NOTES:
      It took 49 events, but Briny Baird captured his first career win,
 defeating  Mark  Hensby  by  four  shots  last  year. Two shots behind
 heading into the weekend, Baird carded a third-round 67 and  a  Sunday
 score  of  66  to  set  a  new  tournament record of 268, breaking the
 previous mark of 269 set by Scott Gump in 1994. Baird, son  of  Senior
 Tour  player Butch Baird, was the only player in the field to post all
 four rounds in the 60s. Currently on the PGA  Tour,  Baird  led  Tripp
 Isenhour  and  J.J.  Henry  by one shot with one round to play, but he
 eagled the first hole and added birdies on four and five  to  increase
 he  lead  and  cruise  to  victory. Baird has made the cut in three of
 seven events on the PGA Tour this year with one top-five finish, as he
 ranks  60th  on  the money list. Isenhour finished with a round of 71,
 tying for third while Henry carded an even-par 72 to  tie  for  sixth.
 David  Berganio, winner of this event in 1996, carded a final round of
 66 to move from 29th to a tie for sixth. Harry Rudolph became only the
 third  player  in BUY.COM Tour history to record three eagles during a
 round in 1997, when he accomplished the feat during the second  round.
 Rudolph  finished  tied  for  40th.  This  is  the second event on the
 BUY.COM Tour schedule for 2001. Ian Leggatt recorded the  first  hole-
 in-one  at  this event since 1997 last year when he aced the 16th hole
 with an eight-iron. There have been a  total  of  five  aces  at  this
 event.  All  eight previous winners of this event have advanced to the
 PGA Tour the following year.  Next  week  the  Tour  moves  LeTriomphe
 Country  Club  for  the Louisiana Open, where Rob McKelvey will defend
 his title.
