He didn't play a practice round, he never got to the practice green, he didn't even qualify for the Nissan Open until Tuesday afternoon, but Jeff Sanday wasn't going to start complaining. Sure, Sanday bogeyed the last hole when he missed the green at the ninth and wound up in a bunker, but when you've spent the last few years grinding it out on the mini-tour circuit or trying to qualify to play what is now the Nationwide Tour, an opening 73 at Riviera looks swell.

With three PGA tour appearances in the last 1 1/2 years, Jeff Sanday of South Pasadena has been dubbed "The Qualifying King" by some of his friends on the various mini tours in professional golf. But the 6-foot-1, 220-pound graduate of Cal State Northridge knows there is a big difference between qualifying for a PGA event and playing well in one. "Qualifying doesn't mean a whole lot," said Sanday, 28.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water. Not to mention onto the fairway. Trouble lurks everywhere. The Walrus here, the Great White Shark there. Now there's a Guppy, and it's carnivorous too. Jeff Sanday picked up the curious moniker while playing at Cal State Northridge, when his teammates noticed more than a passing resemblance to Greg Norman, a.k.a. the Shark. "I'm the albino golfer," Sanday said. Just like that, Sanday became the Baby Shark.
