The year 2003 produced a clean sweep of first-time Major winners-Mike Weir at the Masters, Jim Furyk at the U.S. Open, Ben Curtis at the British Open, and Shaun Micheel at the PGA Championship-and that hasn't happened in thirty-four years. Their stunning achievements prove that golf is more unpredictable than ever and more appealing to golf enthusiasts. PGA Tour events saw an average increase in viewership of 44 percent. Tiger Woods's victory at the Accenture Match Play Championship was the most-watched Match Play event in its history. Even the tournaments played before Woods returned from a layoff because of knee surgery also saw increases in viewers. For the fifteenth year, this calendar presents the big golf moments and some not-so-big ones. Readers will snicker at the golfer whose low drive smacked the women's tee marker and ricocheted back toward the surprised duffer, whereupon he caught the ball. They will chuckle at the guy who sent his shot over the green, up a walkway to an open clubhouse kitchen door, and into a bowl of eggs. Silly or serious, the entries in the Amazing But True Golf Facts 2005 Calendar are sure to please the gallery.
