The Deutsche Bank-SAP Open at the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club in Heidelberg, Germany, was not your typical European Tour event, featuring as it did one Mr. Tiger Woods. The distinguished visitor was a four-stroke victor over Michael Campbell. Padraig Harrington was the top Irish finisher, sharing fifth place with two others at 15-under 273 (70-69-64-70). His earnings amounted to $85,000.

Paul McGinley tied for 10th place at 275 (69-65-72-69), earning $42,590. Darren Clarke’s 279 (76-67-69-67) was good for a piece of 24th place and a check for $24,350. Sharing 70th place at even-par 288 and taking away earnings of $3,820 were Eamonn Darcy (71-72-74-71) and Des Smyth

(74-69-71-74).

Missing the cut were Ronan Rafferty, who shot 149 (75-74) for 36 holes, and David Higgins, 152 (80-72). A score of 143 or lower was required to continue play.
