NOTEWORTHY: In the last 21 years, no one has scored lower than Faldo's 130 through 36 holes in any major.

___

YEAR: 1987

WINNER: Nick Faldo

SCORE: 279.

RUNNER-UP: Paul Azinger.

MARGIN: 1 shot.

EARNINGS: 75,000 pounds.

RECAP: Nick Faldo spent two years overhauling his swing with David Leadbetter, and it paid off with his first major championship at Muirfield. But like most of his six majors, he needed some help. In wind so strong that four of the holes were shortened in the third round to allow players to reach the fairway, Azinger had a 71 and took the lead by one shot going into the last day. Faldo plodded his way around Muirfield with 18 pars for a 71. Azinger had a one-shot lead when he took bogey on the 17th, and then found a bunker and closed with another bogey for a 73 to finish one shot behind.

NOTEWORTHY: David Feherty had a 67 for the low round of the weekend. He tied for 26th.

___

YEAR: 1980

WINNER: Tom Watson

SCORE: 271.

RUNNER-UP: Lee Trevino.

MARGIN: 4 shots.

EARNINGS: 25,000 pounds.

RECAP: Tom Watson made it three claret jugs in six years, all on different links in Scotland. Lee Trevino made a gallant bid at winning again at Muirfield by opening with rounds of 68-67 for a three-shot lead. Watson, however, pulled away with a 64 in the third round to go four shots clear of Trevino, and there was little drama in the final round. Watson closed with a 69, matching the low score on Sunday, for a four-shot win.
