Jeff Maggert's wife, Kelli, didn't see her husband's double-eagle on the par-five, 485-yard 13th hole at the Masters on Sunday. "Two guys were standing in front of me and one said, 'Who is is this Jeff Maggert? He's no good.' "It made me angry, so I wasn't watching his shot. Then, all of a sudden I heard this roar, so I go back to these two guys and say, 'What do you think of him now?' "One of them said, 'Jeff Maggert is a great golfer.'

Jeff Maggert lost his cushion but not the lead at Pine Mountain, Ga., and now has a chance to become the Buick Challenge's first wire-to-wire winner in 23 years. After his only bogey cut his lead to one stroke, Maggert responded with a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole Saturday and had a three-under-par 69 at Callaway Gardens for a two-stroke lead over Nick Price. David Duval, in his first tournament since the British Open, was three strokes off the lead.

Two foreign golfers played off for the PGA Championship on Sunday, but two of the American losers left Riviera with big smiles. Jeff Maggert, who finished tied for third, and Brad Faxon, who finished fifth after a final-round 63, scored enough Ryder Cup points to qualify for the U.S. team that will play the Europeans on Sept. 22-24 at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y. Ten members of the 12-player team were selected by points through the PGA Championship.

Jeff Maggert shot a three-under-par 69 Friday to take a five-stroke lead after the second round of the Buick Challenge at Pine Mountain, Ga. Only Tiger Woods has led by more strokes this year after two rounds--seven strokes in the NEC Invitational at Firestone, Ohio, and six strokes in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Jeff Maggert, a PGA Tour rookie, birdied the final hole Saturday for a two-under-par 70 and a three-shot lead after three rounds of the $800,000 tournament at The Woodlands, Tex. Maggert, who shot 65 in each of the first two rounds and started the day at 14 under par, picked up two more strokes on the front nine and led by as many as five shots before running into trouble and seeing his lead shrink to one stroke. But he recovered from bogeys on the 11th and 12th holes and birdied Nos.

Jeff Maggert had an eagle and six birdies on his way to a second consecutive seven-under-par 65 and took a four-shot lead after two rounds of the $800,000 Independent Insurance Agent Open Friday. Maggert's round over his home course gave him a 36-hole tournament record of 14-under-par 130 and a comfortable lead over Duffy Waldorf and Billy Ray Brown. Waldorf and Brown each shot 67s for the second day in a row. Mike Reid and John Wilson each had 68s and were at 135.

Jeff Maggert, faced with the ignominy of having the worst golf score in the field heading into the final round, made a little Masters history Sunday. Maggert became the third person ever to score a double-eagle in the tournament when he sent his second shot on the 13th hole 222 yards from the side of the fairway to the bottom of the cup. Maggert stared in disbelief for a second, then raised his arms.

Jeff Maggert surged. Wayne Levi stalled. John Daly was solid once again. So it went at Cromwell, Conn., in the third round of the Greater Hartford Open, where a fitter, trimmer Daly is essentially out of the running but still the main attraction in his first appearance since his notorious departure from the U.S. Open. Maggert played flawless golf Saturday, wiping out Levi's four-stroke lead and building a two-stroke advantage of his own.

Never on Sunday, that's Jeff Maggert, who always seems to be in the hunt on the last day and then disappears faster than a parking place anywhere near the tournament. Maybe it's going to be different at this PGA Championship, where he is once again close to the lead. Then again, looking at Maggert's history, maybe not. Maggert, 33, has made a very lucrative living out of finishing second, which he has done 10 times so far during an eight-year career in which he has earned more than $4 million.

Golf will find an instant millionaire today at La Costa and if his public recognition factor is somewhere in the beige range, so what? You take Jeff Maggert and Andrew Magee and you wonder if it matters that we know more about Dennis Rodman's nose rings than these two guys in the final of the Andersen Consulting Match Play Championship.

It's clear that five days and 128 holes, 38 on Sunday, were only barely enough to identify the richest match-play golfer in the world. For the record, his name is Jeff Maggert, who played from, oh, just about sunup to just about sundown so he could stuff $1 million into his pants pocket and walk away from La Costa before he toppled over from exhaustion.

The John Daly who reached a 573-yard hole in two with a seven-iron and showed a soft touch around the greens in the first round of the Honda Classic in Coral Springs, Fla., is not the John Daly of old. He says he's even better. "All in all, I'm hitting the ball well. But mentally and physically put together, this is the best I've ever done," Daly said Thursday after his four-under 68 left him one stroke behind Jeff Maggert.

Here's the latest Ryder Cup news: Jeff Maggert is in, Tommy Tolles is out. Maggert, who had to finish at least eighth in the PGA to make the team on points, shot a closing 65 and finished third in the championship. That knocked Tolles from No. 9 to No. 11, which means he isn't going to Valderrama unless Tom Kite uses a captain's pick on him. Tolles didn't exactly fold. He finished with a 66, good enough to tie for 13th.

So, Steve Jones, in what kind of condition are the golf courses? "Well, I'm done with Sloppy, er, Poppy Hills," Jones said. Davis Love III emptied the water from his muddy shoes before answering whether Spyglass or Poppy Hills was the most water-logged. "It's a tie," Love said. "They're both very, very wet." Heading into the weekend at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, this may be one tournament that doesn't need caddies as much as it needs rafts.
