Why you play the game ...

Who would have figured Gregory Havret would be 2-under through the first six holes and three-up on playing partner Tiger Woods? The 391st player in the world is the Cinderfella in Sunday's mix. Why? Well, one reason might be 80 putts in the first three rounds. The kid stared down Phil Mickelson and won a playoff at the 2007 Barclays Scottish Open and he's hanging in there today. It's just his fourth major, period. He missed the cut in two and shared 19th in the 2008 British Open. The only Frenchman to win a major? Arnuad Massy, who won the British Open in 1907. Thomas Levet was in that four-man playoff at Murifield in 2002 when Ernie Els beat Levet, Steve Elkington and Stuart Appleby. -- Melanie Hauser
