GIANT EAGLE LPGA CLASSIC NOTEBOOK From Squaw Creek Country Club



Published: Mon, July 30, 2001 @ 12:00 a.m.



Toughest hole: For the third straight round, the par-4, 367-yard No. 3 hole was toughest to play. For the three rounds the hole played at an average of 4.442 strokes. There were only 17 birdies the entire weekend and 23 double bogeys. The second toughest hole was the par-4, 375-yard 10th, which played to 4.227 strokes for the tournament. That hole gave up one eagle and 18 birdies and had eight double bogeys. The easiest hole was the par-5, 486-yard No. 8, which played to 4.667 strokes for the tournament. There were six eagles and 121 birdies there and just 17 bogeys and three double bogeys. The par-5, 452-yard No. 13 was the second-easiest playing to 4.706 strokes for the tournament.Tournament stats: The champion, Dorothy Delasin, probably wasn't the most accurate driver for the three days, but she hit more greens than any of the top three finishers. Delasin hit only 25 fairways for the three days, but reached 42 greens in regulation and averaged 28.5 putts per round. Runner-up Tammie Green hit 31 fairways and 40 greens, and averaged 28 putts. Se Ri Pak hit 25 fairways and 41 greens, and averaged 28 putts. Sherri Steinhauer hit 48 of 54 greens, but she averaged 32 putts. The most accurate drivers for the week were Becky Iverson, My Hyum Kim and Donna Andrews, who hit 35 fairways each.Squaw Creek best: Dorothy Delasin's total of 13-under par beat the previous best winning score, which was 9-under 207, held by Beth Daniel in 1990 and Deb Richard in 1991. Delasin's final round of 7-under 65 also equaled the best LPGA tournament score ever at Squaw Creek. Daniel and Debbie Massey both had 65s in 1990 and Julie Inkster equaled that in 1991.Coe-Jones' round: Delasin wasn't the only player who had a round to remember. Although Delasin's 65 was the best of the day, Dawn Coe-Jones fired a 66 and finished at 5-under 211. "I haven't had many rounds in the 60s this year," said Coe-Jones. "I've been working hard on my putting, and today I finally saw them go in." Poor putting has plagued Coe-Jones this season. "I was looking at my stats the other night, and I noticed I was 127th. That's not good enough. Everybody hits the ball well on Tour, and whoever chips and putts [well] will be on top of the leaderboard every week." Coe-Jones didn't begin the round hoping to shoot a particular score. "I just wanted to play smart and put the ball on the right side of the hole. Then maybe I'd get on a little bit of a roll." Coe-Jones will not play in this weekend's British Open. Instead, she plans to stay in Tampa, Fla., as her 5-year-old son, Jimmy, begins kindergarten.Buckeye backer: Count 1990 Ohio State graduate Suzy Green among the supporters of new football coach Jim Tressel. Green said she met Tressel three weeks ago at the Buckeye Pro-Am golf tournament. She also met his wife, Ellen, at the event. "He's a great guy," Green said. "I'm really excited about the football season. We needed a change and I think he's the right man for the job."
