It's time for roll call at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, where David Duval, Fred Couples, Justin Leonard and Jose Maria Olazabal are among the headliners who will tee it up in the 90-hole event that begins today. Meanwhile, who's not here: Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, Phil Mickelson . . . and now Jesper Parnevik. Woods, Love and Mickelson didn't put the Hope on their schedules and planned to sit this one out, but Parnevik joined them Tuesday night.

Jesper Parnevik held on to win the Honda Classic, with a big assist from his pursuers at Coral Springs, Fla. Parnevik shot an even-par 72 Sunday, closing at 18 under and beating Mark Calcavecchia (70), Geoff Ogilvy (69) and Craig Perks (66) by a stroke for his first victory this season on the PGA Tour. The top four finishers bogeyed the par-four 18th hole. Calcavecchia missed a 15-foot putt that would have forced a playoff with Parnevik.

Only Jesper Parnevik's unusual style of dress remained the same heading into this week's Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic in North Carolina. So far, the changes are paying off. Parnevik, sporting his trademark baseball cap with the upturned bill, a black shirt and bright red pants, fired a seven-under-par 65 on Thursday to take a one-shot lead after the first round of the tournament at the Forest Oaks Country Club.

Jesper Parnevik, Jim Furyk and Jeff Maggert turned the second round of the Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic Friday into their own personal game of "Can you top this?" The trio took advantage of calm morning conditions and soft greens to stage a record-setting shootout at the Forest Oaks Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. Parnevik birdied seven holes and dropped in a 115-yard sand wedge at the par-four seventh for an eagle to shoot a 63, one shy of the course record.

Jesper Parnevik maintained the lead and Ty Tryon stayed in the spotlight. Parnevik shot a five-under-par 67 Friday in the second round of the Honda Classic at Coral Springs, Fla., and was three strokes ahead of John Huston (67), Mark Calcavecchia (68) and Chris Smith (68). Parnevik was at 132, 12 under after 36 holes on TPC at Heron Bay. But Tryon, a 16-year-old high school sophomore from Orlando, held much of the attention for the second consecutive day.

Despite a windy, wild start to the new season, two things hardly ever change. Jesper Parnevik will always hear a comment or two about his outrageous clothes, and Tiger Woods won't be too far away from the lead. Parnevik made a bogey and two double bogeys on the back nine Thursday, caught grief for his bright red pants and still managed a four-under-par 69 to take a one-shot lead after the first round of the Mercedes Championship. "It was a fun day, interesting," Parnevik said.

Jesper Parnevik shot a two-under 70 despite hitting only five fairways to close out a record-setting victory Sunday at the Greater Greensboro Classic in Greensboro, N.C. Parnevik finished at 23-under par, breaking by six shots the 72-hole scoring record for the tournament since it moved to Forest Oaks Country Club in 1977. Sandy Lyle and Ken Green set the previous mark of 17-under-par 271 in 1988. Lyle won that year in a playoff.

Jesper Parnevik missed a one-foot putt on the 12th hole of the final round but still won the Byron Nelson Classic on Sunday in a playoff at Irving, Texas. Parnevik's dramatic victory came at the expense of hard-luck Davis Love III, who missed an eight-foot putt on the 18th hole in regulation and then 50 minutes later missed a five-footer on the same hole, the third and final one of the playoff. Love's winless streak on the PGA Tour was extended to 47 events.

Heron Bay's best defender took the day off Saturday. Jesper Parnevik, along with the rest of the field, took advantage. On a rare, windless day in Coral Springs, Fla., when the flags didn't sway unless they were being taken out of the holes, the only significant movement at the Honda Classic was on the leaderboard. Parnevik shot a six-under-par 66 in the third round to retain a three-shot lead at 18-under 198, breaking J.P. Hayes' 54-hole tournament record of 200 set last year.

Jesper Parnevik, recovering from a hip injury, shot a six-under-par 65 Friday to take a one-stroke lead in the PGA Tour's Air Canada Championship at Surrey, Canada. "It seems like I've been able to feel the shots the way they're going to come out before I hit them, which is key a lot of times, especially when I don't feel well," said Parnevik, the Swedish star seeking his third victory of the year. "It's just a feel you're looking for.

In 11 years and 265 previous PGA Tour events, Kirk Triplett was winless, but it wasn't as if he had to rent out space in his floppy brimmed hat for extra money or anything. Actually, Triplett's claim to fame was that among players who had never won a tournament (that's zero), no one had won more money (that's $4.2 million). Well, Triplett sure knows how to wreck his place in history.

He has a tee stuck behind his ear and the bill of his cap flipped up. But with his blond hair and blue eyes, Jesper Parnevik of Sweden looks a lot more like a fiord salesman than a golfer. Nevertheless, in Thursday's first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, there was Parnevik, trudging along at Poppy Hills and claiming a muddy share of the lead.

With his black cap, black shirt, black slacks, black shoes and black socks, slender Jesper Parnevik looked sort of like the shadow of a rake. But at least there was a reason he chose to dress like an eclipse. "I was out of the big colors," Parnevik said. "The red, the baby blue, were already gone, so I had to go with the old-fashioned way." So on the last day of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, Parnevik was a vision in basic black.
