      from yahoo :

      and he tied a PGA Tour record by winning for the sixth time on the same course. Jack Nicklaus won six Masters at Augusta National, and Alex Ross won six times at the North & South Open at Pinehurst No. 2 at the turn of the 20th century

        Eldrick's two citations, which appear at first to contradict each other, do not, it seems. According to Wikipedia, the Greater Greensboro Open:

        has been played in Greensboro for its entire history. In its first 4 years, it was played at both Sedgefield Country Club and Starmount Forest Country Club, and shifted to solely Starmount Forest CC in 1942 and for the first time it was played after World War II in 1945. Starting with that 1945 event, it alternated between Starmount Forest CC and Sedgefield CC until 1952, when Starmount Forest CC hosted for a 2nd year in a row. It returned to Sedgefield CC in 1953 before Starmount Forest CC hosted 3 consecutive years (through 1956). Sedgefield CC hosted in 1957 before Starmount Forest CC hosted another 3 straight 1958-60. In 1961, the event returned to Sedgefield CC, and stayed there until 1976. Since 1977, it has been played at its current location at Forest Oaks CC.
        So Sam Snead won the GGO 8 times, but not on the same course.
