5 Things You Didn't Know: Bob Hope Chrysler Classic goes inside the numbers to show you why D.J. Trahan collected his second PGA Tour win, and why Justin Leonard came up short again. D.J. Trahan finally got his putter working Last season was D.J. Trahan's third on the PGA Tour, and he averaged 29.88 putts per round (ranking 171st). But at the 2008 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, Trahan found a little magic in his flat stick. The former Clemson University star averaged 26 putts per round over the five rounds, including a 23-putt performance on his way to a 65 on Sunday. Trahan one-putted 42 of 90 holes in the event and never three-putted en route to his second Tour win.

Justin Leonard collapses, again There is good news and bad new for Justin Leonard, who won the Hope Classic in 2005. The good news? He has five top 10 finishes in his last six tournaments, including a win at the 2007 Valero Texas Open. The bad news? For the fifth time in his career, Leonard lost an event on Sunday after having the lead at the start of the final round.

Anthony Kim starts straighter During the off-season, the former University of Oklahoma star Anthony Kim seems to have figured out how to hit his powerful tee shots a little straighter. Kim, who tied for third place at the Hope, hit 71.01% of the fairways last week, an improvement of almost 11% over his 2007 average (60.79%). Kim was also one of three players to shoot all five rounds in the 60s last week.

Weekley doesn't know boo about putting Boo Weekley can hit the ball far (his average drive in 2008 is 293 yards), and he can hit it straight (he has found 78.34% of the fairways this season). He earned his first top 10 finish of 2008 last week, tying for eighth, but imagine how well he'd be doing if he could make a putt! Weekley, who chipped in twice on the back nine to win the 2007 Verizon Heritage, averaged 29.73 putts per round last season (ranking him 155th). Through three events in 2008, his average has risen to 30.45.

Keep 'em short for Chez Chez Reavie tied for fifth place at the Hope, the best finish of his PGA Tour career. If the event were played on a par-3 course, he might have won. Reavie tied Jesper Parnevik for the lowest average score on the par 3s, 2.76. The tournament field's average was 3.02.
