Case File: Casey Vs. the Daunting D.A.
The first name in Quad City golf is Donald Albert (D.A.) Weibring. The five-time Tour winner, who went to Illinois State, has collected three of his victories down in the road in Coal Valley. Weibring may be the god of Quad, but he is hardly the only player to take a liking to this tournament. The Quad City Classic has had 12 first-time winners in its 26-year history, including Weibring in 1979, Scott Hoch the following year and Payne Stewart in '82. With most of the Tour's marquee names populating the leader board at Loch Lomond, acclimatizing for next week's British Open, sponsor's exemption beneficiary Casey Martin might well sneak up on the leaders at the Quad.

It's Golf's Best Tournament by Farr
The Jamie Farr Kroger Classic, a.k.a. the Klinger Kroger, always attracts a mishmash of celebs to the Toledo area for a few days of joking around, followed by 72 holes of serious golf. This year Farr, who played the cross-dressing Klinger on TV's M*A*S*H, was scheduled to cavort during Wednesday's pro-am with Lee Meriwether of All My Children, Hill Street Blues alum Bruce Weitz and Ron Masak of Murder, She Wrote. The real stars start shining two days later when Se Ri Pak, Helen Alfredsson, Nancy Lopez, Dottie Pepper and Karrie Webb go after the $120,000 first prize.
