SPEAKING of 1986, Kenny Knox did the almost unthinkable – insomanyways–towinat TPC Eagle Trace. Knox was virtually a nobody on Tour, having never won a PGA Tour event, and came through Monday qualifying to earn his place in the Honda Classic field. He even shot a third-round 80, and yet his two-under 70 on Sunday was enough for him to pull off the most unlikely of wins, beating Jodie Mudd, Clarence Rose, John Mahaffey and Andy Bean by one shot. I T’S hard to believe this actually happened. A 25-year-old Mark Calcavecchia caddied for his mate Ken Green at the 1986 Honda Classic, and reportedly said Green played so badly that he wanted to grab his club and show him how to hit it. The very next year, he did, playing in the event and shooting a two-under final round that earned his second PGA Tour title. CONTINUING the Aussie theme, Geoff Ogilvy was second behind Luke Donald at the 2006 Honda Classic, but he owns the tournament’s best highlight from that year, holing out for a double eagle at the relatively short par-5 6th hole. His three shots gained with that one shot in the first round still weren’t enough for him to get close enough to Donald, however, with the Englishman finishing two shots clear. 2006: OGILVY SEES DOUBLE...EAGLE 1987: CADDIE TO CHAMPION IN TWO YEARS 1986: KNOX ROLLS WITH THE KNOCKS
