Feb21-haas_300 43 Length of the putt Bill Haas made for birdie on the second playoff hole to win the Northern Trust Open, the longest putt to win a playoff on the PGA Tour in at least 20 years. However, it was not the longest shot made in a playoff, Craig Parry holed a six-iron from 176 yards out to beat Scott Verplank at the 2004 Ford Championship at Doral.
  0 Number of three putts by Bill Haas at the Northern Trust Open. Keegan Bradley and three others also avoided three-putting at the event. For the week, Haas was second in strokes gained, second in total putting and tied for first in overall putting average. He had 33 one-putts, which was T19th. (Keegan Bradley won that category with 41 one-putts.) In putts from 5 feet and in, Haas was a perfect 49 for 49.  
  50 Percent of greens hit in regulation by Bill Haas at the Northern Trust Open. Other than putting, Haas's statistics from the Northern Trust Open were pretty average. He was T58th in greens in regulation (36 of 72) and T30th in fairways hit.
  1 Number of rounds Haas has been over par in the 20 rounds he's played on the PGA Tour this year. He shot a 1-over 72 in the first round of the Northern Trust.
  7 Current streak of wins by American players on the PGA Tour. Americans have won the first seven events of the 2012 PGA TOUR season. The last time there was such a streak to start the season was 2001, when U.S. players won the first eight events of the year before Robert Allenby won the Northern Trust Open.
  28 Age of Jay Haas (28 years, 9 months and 17 days ) when he won his fourth PGA Tour event at the 1982 Hall of Fame Classic. Son Bill has was 29 years, 8 months and 25 days when he won the Northern Trust Open on Sunday.
  13.4 Millions in Tour winnings by Bill Haas, just $1 million short of his father's career earnings. And that 13.4 million doesn't include the $10 million bonus Bill Haas received for winning the 2011 FedEx Cup.
  19 Combined wins of Julius Boros (18) and son Guy Boros (1), the most PGA Tour wins by a father-son combo. Here are the other father-and-son tandems that have won on the PGA Tour:

Al Geiberger (11) and Brent Geiberger (2): 13 total wins
Joe Kirkwood Sr. (13) and Joe Kirkwood Jr. (2): 15 total wins

  23 Age of Yani Tseng when she won her 13th LPGA event on Sunday. By contrast, Whitworth she was 23 years when she won the 1962 Phoenix Thunderbird Open, her second career victory; Mickey Wright was 23 years when she won the 1958 LPGA Championship, her sixth LPGA Tour victory; and Annika Sorenstam was 24 when she won for the first time at the 1995 U.S. Women's Open.
  12.6 Percent of LPGA starts that Yani Tseng has won (13 wins in 103 starts). However, Tseng's win rate doesn't come close to Tiger Woods's winning percentage of 25.8 percent (71 wins in 275 starts).
