When Jodie Mudd finished the first nine holes on Thursday at the 1990 Players Championship at Sawgrass with a 5-under par lead and stayed that way for a share of the first-round lead, he did not exactly have history working for him. Only Al Geiberger (1975) and Jack Nicklaus (1978) had shared or held the lead for the first three rounds on their way to winning. And only Nicklaus (1976) and Mark McCumber (1988) had led after the first round, lost the lead and come back to win. Mudd, though, had one thing working in his favor – spiked up greens. He was accustomed to playing on spiked up greens at public courses in Louisville, Kentucky. He finished the final round with a score of 69 and a four day total of 278 to win by one stroke over Mark Calcavecchia.
