Jeff Sluman held it together this time on the final day of the Greater Milwaukee Open. Sluman fired a three-under-par 68 Sunday for a four-stroke victory over Tim Herron (66) and Steve Lowery (70) and his second Greater Milwaukee Open title. He also won in 1998. His 23-under 261 total was one stroke shy of Loren Roberts' 72-hole tournament record set two years ago.

With the help of a tree and a ditch, Jeff Sluman finally won a sudden-death playoff. After going 0 for 6 in previous playoffs, Sluman made an eight-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff with Australian rookie Paul Gow on Sunday to win the B.C. Open at Endicott, N.Y. "I've lost them in one-man, two-man, six-man playoffs, just about everything," said Sluman, who lost in a six-man playoff in the Nissan Open in February at Riviera Country Club.

Jeff Sluman shot a bogey-free, seven-under-par 65 on Saturday to charge past six players for a share of the third-round lead in the B.C. Open at Endicott, N.Y. Australian Paul Gow had a 66 to join Sluman atop the leaderboard at 16-under 200. The two made their gains thanks to Brett Quigley's struggles. Quigley, who began the day with a three-stroke lead at the En-Joie Golf Club, shot an even-par 72. At 15 under, Quigley is one off the pace, along with Jim McGovern, who shot a 68.

Quietly and steadily, Jeff Sluman moved up on the leaders Sunday at the inaugural $2.6-million Sony Open in Honolulu and ended up with a two-stroke victory. It wasn't until the 71st hole--a 189-yard par three--that Sluman took charge with a birdie. And for good measure, he birdied the final hole of the PGA Tour's first full-field tournament of year to finish with a nine-under-par 271. "I made the turn in good shape," said Sluman, who collected $468,000.

Jeff Sluman gained his first golf tournament title in 19 months and gave his best friend a special thrill too. Rick Bruder, who doesn't play golf, agreed at the last minute to caddie for Sluman during the Greater Milwaukee Open. As Sluman was heading toward his third PGA Tour victory Sunday, Bruder, who had never caddied, was getting excited. "He is on cloud nine," Sluman said. "It has been a wonderful week. He was really, really nervous out there. It was a lot of fun seeing him.

Sluman and Perry, winless on the PGA Tour, headed into today's final round at 16-under 197, leading a group of 14 players within six strokes of the lead. Perry followed Friday's 62 with a 67. Sluman's last victory was the 1997 Tucson Chrysler Classic. Prior to that, he won the 1988 PGA Championship.
