 Pick to Win - Tiger Woods, David Duval, Phil Mickelson
 Darkhorse   - Brad Faxon, Jim Furyk, Billy Mayfair

 Last week's Pick to Win (Tom Lehman) - Missed the cut
 Last week's Darkhorse (Hal Sutton) - Missed the cut

      Tiger Woods outdueled Bob May in a three-hole playoff, 12-to-13 to
 capture his second straight PGA Championship last year. One shot off the pace
 heading into Sunday's final round, May carded his third straight 66, which
 included a birdie on the final hole to force the extra session. Woods needed
 birdies on the final two holes to reach the playoff. On the first extra hole,
 Woods sank a 20-footer for birdie and then parred the next two holes while May
 parred all three holes. Woods is looking to become the first player to win
 three straight PGA Championship titles since Walter Hagen produced four
 straight from 1924 through 1927. This is the final major of the 2001 PGA Tour
 season. Woods captured The Masters in April, Retief Goosen defeated Mark
 Brooks in a playoff to win the U.S. Open and David Duval won the British Open
 in July. The method of play will be four rounds of stroke play. Following the
 first 36 holes, the field will be reduced to the 70 players having the lowest
 scores and those tied for 70th place. In the event of a tie after 72 holes,
 there will be a playoff. The PGA of America implemented a new playoff system
 last year, as Woods and May competed in a three-hole, cumulative score system
 in the event of a tie after the completion of regulation play. Playoffs have
 decided the PGA Championship four times in the last eight years. Players
 eligible for the Championship are: all former PGA Champions, winners of the
 last five U.S. Opens, Masters and British Opens, current PGA Seniors'
 Champion, low 15 scores from last year's PGA Championship, low 25 scores from
 the 2001 PGA Club Professional Championship, top-70 money leaders on the PGA
 money list through The International, members of the 1999 United States Ryder
 Cup team, winners of tournaments co-sponsored or approved by the PGA Tour and
 in addition, The PGA of America reserves the right to invite additional
 players not included in the categories above with a total field of a maximum
 of 150 players. Woods is the all-time money winner at this event with
 $1,612,625 in earnings. With a minimum of 30 rounds played, Steve Elkington
 has the lowest scoring average at 70.57. There have been five wire-to-wire
 winners of the PGA, the last coming in 1983 when Hal Sutton captured the
 event. Jack Nicklaus and Ray Floyd hold the record for the most cuts made at
 this event with 27. Hale Irwin and Arnold Palmer are next with 24. Americans
 have won four of the last five PGA Championships, however International
 players have captured five of the last 11. The Atlanta Athletic Club hosted
 the PGA Championship in 1981 when Larry Nelson captured the event. AAC has
 also hosted the 1976 U.S. Open won by Jerry Pate; 1982 Junior World Cup, 1984
 U.S. Mid-Amateur and the 1990 U.S. Women's Open. The 2002 PGA Championship
 will be held at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. The total
 purse for the tournament will be announced on Tuesday. Next week, the PGA Tour
 has two events, as the WGC-NEC Invitational takes place at Firestone Country
 Club and the Reno Tahoe Open will be held in Nevada. Last year, Woods captured
 the NEC while Scott Verplank won in Reno.
