 NOTES:
      Tiger Woods will be competing in this tournament for the third straight
 year. This event features one of the finest fields on the European Tour, as
 Woods will be joined by Lee Westwood, Colin Montgomerie, Jose Maria 
Olazabal,
 Ernie Els, Bernhard Langer, Paul Lawrie, Ian Woosnam, Darren Clarke, Miguel
 Angel Jimenez, Padraig Harrington and Michael Campbell. Trailing world number-
 one and defending champion Woods by two shots heading into last year's final
 round, Westwood fashioned a brilliant 64 to defeat Emanuele Canonica by three
 shots and Woods by four for his 10th career title. Westwood would later add
 four more trophies to his mantle in 2000 to up his total to 14 victories on
 the European Tour. Woods opened with two rounds of 70 and then a five-under
 67, but could do no better than 70 on Sunday to finish tied for third.
 Westwood joined Bernhard Langer as the only multiple winners of this event.
 Langer is the only three-time winner of this event, capturing the tournament
 in 1983, 1992 and again in 1995. Westwood is attempting to become the first
 back-to-back victor of this event. The tournament returns to St. Leon Rot
 after a one-year stop at Gut Kaden, which also hosted the tournament from
 1992-98. The tournament purse is the biggest on the European Tour outside the
 majors and the World Golf Championships. The marquee matchup for the first two
 rounds has Woods paired with Darren Clarke and Montgomerie. Following that
 pairing is Harrington, Els and Paul McGinley. Next week the European Tour
 moves back to England for the Volvo PGA Championship, May 25-28 (Monday
 finish), where Monty will defend his title.
