U.Va. man on PGA tour makes playoff at New Orleans
James Driscoll, who played college golf for U.Va., is a tour rookie who made it to extra holes but came in second this afternoon in New Orleans at the Zurich Classic. Before this week, Driscoll had missed six cuts and made five, with his best finish in 16th place at Doral. The bummer is that he missed a five-footer on the 72nd hole that would have won in regulation. The winner's share of $990,000 goes instead to Tim Petrovic. Driscoll will have to settle for some $500,000+, which will move him up from 146 to No. 39 on the money list.
