Reifers Shrinks From Contention
Playing his final 18 holes at the Zurich Classic without scoring a birdie, Tour rookie Kyle Reifers, who led after round one, slid from 5th to T24 Sunday. Averaging 287 yards per drive for the year, you wouldn't think distance off the tee would be an issue for the 2006 Wake Forest grad, but in the final round, Reifers averaged a mere 256.

Calc Was a Straighter Arrow
PGA Tour veteran Mark Calcavecchia, who finished T5 at the Zurich Classic, is no stranger to the short grass. Hitting an average of 68.95% of the fairways in 2007, Calcavecchia ranks 23rd on Tour. But he hit 78.6% at the TPC of Louisiana, which tied for first in the category.

Anthony Kim Has a Finishing Kick
A Sunday 65 the low round of the day pushed the PGA Tour rookie Anthony Kim from T27 to T3, but his outstanding score should not come as a shock. The former Oklahoma standout has a pre-cut stroke average of 71.00, but he averages 68.71 in the third round and 69.86 in the fourth. Kim's performance at the Zurich Classic earned him his third top 10 finish of the season.

Duke Putted Like a King
Averaging 29 putts per round, Ken Duke ranks 80th on the PGA Tour in the category. But at the TPC of Louisiana last week, Duke's putter was much more regal. He averaged 27.3 putts per round en route to a runner-up finish, and only took 23 on Saturday on the way to a 66.
